~*Welcome to my Favorite Room*~

Today I spent the afternoon working on cleaning up my Favorite Room of the house. Never in my life would I have thought that I would live in the country in a home that was built and designed by me and Danny.
It is nothing fancy and I have no knack for decorating but it is has big open rooms. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are one great room and then we have french doors that open to the master bedroom and more french doors that open to my favorite room...my craftin' spot!
So welcome to where I create primitives by the light of the moon. For years now I have been a night owl and when the day is done...and the sun goes down...this is where you will find me. I'll be crafting something for sure and watching TV Land's old shows, and stopping by a few blogs to see what all of you have been doing.



A good friend of my Mom's gave me this cutting table. It sure comes in handy when you want to cut out large projects. I mostly do small things now so I use the top for storage.



Danny gave me this wonderful sewing table and cabinet for Christmas one year. Early in the mornings...when I'm at home I open the blinds and watch the hummingbirds as they stop by for a drink in the front yard. In the late afternoon the sun out of the west shines so brightly I have to close them for awhile.


A bookshelf loaded with a printer, tv, paperwork, pictures, old spools, and this and that. This part of the room still needs some work!


I just love this desk. I found it at a local thrift store that was going out of business. Barn red is one of my favorite colors and the drawers are super for holding spools of floss, pre~cut weavers cloth, and such.


More windows on the side of the house open to the north and the window seat holds quilts and some Christmas goodies.


I have a book shelf loaded with quilting books and the closed cabinet holds some of my floss. I have trunks filled with penny rug makings. The door opens to a walk in closet that has cabinets lining each side. When I get it organized I'll open the door and let you take a peek.


Shelves filled with wool, fabric, and lots of weavers cloth. On the quilt rack is some unfinished quilts. Another book shelf that holds primitive patterns for rug hooking, needle punch, wool penny rugs and such.


The french doors open to the living room where late in the evening you will find Danny sitting in his recliner watching a little tv or snoozing!


Baskets of odds and ends for future needle punch projects and an old cabinet that holds lots of paper patterns for all kinds of projects.
You may have noticed on the walls are projects that may be finished and some are works in progress.
Yes, this is about as clean as it gets...life is short and I do enjoy stitchin' more than cleanin'....
Hope you enjoyed my favorite room!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Your craft room looks so spacious! I have spent some of my time this summer organizing my sewing & crafting room. It is a huge task, isn't it?! Keep up the good work.

If I had a room like this, no one would ever see or hear from me again. It's exactly what I would imagine for myself.

I just love your blog. I may just read the entire thing tonight ~ I'm a night owl too!

Smiles,
