Tada... here is "my" space! Our basement is unfinished (as you can see by the ceiling and little light bulb hanging down!), but I'm trying hard to make it livable. I painted the paneling on the walls, pieced together all kinds of rugs for the floor, and just keep killing the spiders! That doorway leads to the really "dungeony" part of the basement that's all cement. That's just one of my many piles of laundery you see on the floor!
She'll be sewing with mamma in no time at all! This is exactly what I used to do with my mom. I would sit beside her sewing machine (which was in the living room of our trailer) and stitch little pictures and buttons onto scraps of fabric.
This thing that my ribbon sits in was an awesome find at the JUNK MARKET. It was only 25 cents. It's a wood frame for sewing machine drawers. The buttons are from the Buffalo Nickel.
These old coke crates (yard sale finds) work perfect for storing my baby food jars full of odds and ends. The sewing machine desk is in poor shape. I got it at a thrift store a few years ago. I thought it was an aweful color, but it's really growing on me!
