Sewing Pursuits

This is a small vignette of my sewing room. But really it is a snapshot of the 'space' that I now enjoy in our home since our children are grown.
The space this room occupies is both actual ( our daughter's old nursery, the back corner bedroom upstairs) and it is also a mental space, that I now my own\.  It is a space that I can retreat to when I get home from work or escape to on weekends whenever I have finished what needs to be done in the kitchen or garden.... In this private workroom, whatever I start working on, will be as I left it when I return.... amazing. 

For so many years I really haven't had a space of my own and really didn't care. When our family was young, we spent all of our time together in almost every room of the house.  I laid in bed with my children to read them bedtime stories; really never enjoyed 'privacy' in the bathroom (sigh!); and the TV was always on & within earshot while I worked in the kitchen.  I never minded, well maybe the TV, but I loved having the kids around.

But, I really could get used to having a room of my own.

I love the vignette - it feels peaceful to me and there is soemthing unhurried about it...I think I will begin imagining the creations that come out of it.
