Front of booth at my Bedford, PA show
suitcase display

 Totally new display set up this year, I had the corner
 space and had to figure out how to fit it all in.
 Certainly took a while to do!

Halloween Decorating

Just started some Halloween decorating, since I finished my show this past weekend. I am behind everyone this year. Still didn't get pumpkins yet or do all my outside decorating! I was busy making decorations to sell! Got my blog done in Halloween, LOTS left to do! I will post some pictures of my Bedford show later.

(This is my favorite Halloween picture)

Getting ready for my second show...
Bedford Fall Foliage on
October 6 & 7. We are down to just 2 shows now. And every year I swear I am going to put things on my etsy site. Still haven't. Maybe after Bedford I will figure it out.
Couple pictures from my first show at New Germany, PA...

Getting there...

Well, I'm still in the M's in the Where Bloggers Create list and still have a long way to go. It's been fun checking out everyone's spaces. So many creative people out there. I had been spending all my time on Pinterest and now it's the WBC site. Really got some great ideas in storage and decorating. A BIG thank you to Karen Valentine for doing this for everyone. Great job, Karen!

Where Bloggers Create 2012...

Oh my, has it been a year already? Wow, time flies! Not a lot has changed in my sewing rooms. I still didn't paint the cupboard white and antique it. Maybe in the winter I can get to it.

I always wait to the last minute to take pictures (10:00PM) the night before! Ridiculous! Our camera is not working too great and I think we are going to have to get a new one. So I took pictures with the blurry camera, my tablet and my iphone! Not sure how the pictures will turn out? So with that sewing rooms...

This is my cutting work table,
It's a Singer table I got at a sale for $3.00!
Another view of cutting room. Space is at a premium here
 and I have to stack and store everywhere.
 I made the jelly cabinet years ago at a cabinet making class.
Cutting table
Singer table
This cabinet stores some of my fabric. Not organized right now.
Upholstery Singer (got at an auction)
The one who dies with the most fabric wins, right?
 I'm in the running!!
I love this old dress, it's in pretty bad condition,
 but I don't care, It's still beautiful to me!

My sewing room, not too much of a change since last year. 
My husband built my counters for me!
Another sewing machine under the cover.
The cover was too big for this machine so I folded the bottom up
and pinned it to make pockets for scissors and supplies.
The other one is a serger.

Love antique photos!
I finally got organized by making tags for all my storage boxes
 instead of just trying to remember where things are.
Collection of sewing items and Singer items.
This is my new storage system...suitcases. It is a great idea and I love how it looks, but when I need the bottom case, it's a chore. My chair cover is an old buggy blanket.
Got them all tagged.
I had this old clock case for years and then it hit me...  Who needs a clock when you can have an interesting display shelf!

All my thimbles and small goodies!

My workbench, where I do all my gluing and finishing.

Newest acquisition... Singer made in Great Britain.
I found it on our recent trip to Scotland.
It's marked Made in Great Britain. Love it!

Another view of workbench
Singer Collection
This isn't too pretty here, but I need the plastic shoe boxes for storage. Wish they were nicer.I collect sewing baskets and hang them from the ceiling. The black case on the shelf is from my Featherweight.

My singer Featherweight and pincushions. Kinda bad photo,
but I took it late at night.

Dress form and thread candlestick
This is my 160th Anniversary Singer, I also have the 150th Anniversary, too. This one has a much larger sewing table. Runs smooth.

Well, I think that concludes the tour of my sewing rooms. I had difficulty with the picture taking and  blogging. But, I got it finished. I almost lost everything a couple minutes ago! Scary! I hope you enjoy looking. It's a bit cluttered and messy, but it's where I create. 
I'm off to look at all the other rooms!

Got home last week from a fabulous vacation to Scotland, England and Wales! We had a great time and mostly great weather. The last couple days in Scotland were a bit wet!  Went to castles, antique shops and car boot sales.
