My favourite room in the house

By August 29, 2016November 20th, 2017blog

So what do you think is my favourite room of our house…? Yep, you guessed it, my craft room. (coz it sure isn’t the laundry!)

I spend a lot of time in here and have made it as cosy and lovely as I can.


This is my display space…. little bits and bobs… my favourite (or latest purchase) fabrics, jelly rolls and underneath all my patterns and books and a few WIPs





I have two different cupboards where my fabric is stored, one is my ‘by designer’ fabric


The other is an heirloom stained glass cabinet where my ‘by colour’ fabric is stored.


On top of that cabinet is also a display of old bobbins (I have a bit of an addiction to these!) as well as some hatboxes that my mum made / decorated.


My cutting table is in the middle of the room where I can admire my display shelves and look at my fabric cupboard! And my ironing board is behind the door so it is nicely hidden from view.


I have been working on various methods to store works in progress such as bee blocks and sew-alongs and found these great box folders at OfficeWorks I need to buy more!!


And I love storing my buttons in mason jars!


I am looking forward to seeing the other craft rooms on the linky party that Melva is holding at









  • I love your craft room! It is so cozy. I especially love your long shelf.

  • What a perfect room! It’s so beautiful, it looks like a magazine. I can well imagine making gorgeous art inn this room!

    • SWL says:

      Hehe… I didn’t show you the floor!!! Much less perfect….. ๐Ÿ™‚ But I love my room… I could spend even more hours than I do in there if given the opportunity!

  • Sue says:

    This is a lovely fresh room. It must be a delight to work in. Are they those adjustable Ikea trestles under your cutting table? I’m seriously considering them – are they recommendable?

    • SWL says:

      Sue, yes, they are. I love the table and the trestles! I haven’t actually ever adjusted them (I originally thought I would when standing and cutting) but the option is there.

  • Melva says:

    You space is so inviting! I’d love to spend some time looking at all of the items in your wall shelf. Thanks for participating in the linky party ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Tish says:

    I love all the small touches you’ve added to make this room feel cozy and fun. It’s decorated so nicely, I feel like I could walk in and be at one of my favorite quilt shops. I’m pretty sure you should never let me in your sewing room…I’ll never leave ๐Ÿ™‚

    • SWL says:

      Hahaha Tish! You are totally welcome to come visit! But there will be a bag check at the end of the visit!!! Thank you for saying such a lovely thing about my room – it warmed my heart ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Oh I really love how you personalized this room! Some great ideas for my future room! I like all of your ideas, but my favorite is your stained glass cabinet. LOVELY!!

    • SWL says:

      Thanks Janice! I had thought that the display shelves would have some empty spots too… but amazing how many cute little things I have collected!!

      Canโ€™t wait to see what your future room looks like.

      Yes, I love the stained glass cabinet tooโ€ฆ. Just a peak of beautiful fabric in there (and keeps the dust and light off the fabric too!).

  • Jen R. says:

    What an amazing room! You have such a great sense of design. Seriously, it looks like a storefront. ๐Ÿ™‚ It would be so inspiring to walk into this space everyday.
    Thank you for sharing it with us.

    • SWL says:

      Thanks Jen! ๐Ÿ™‚ And it is…. just makes me want to spend ALL my time in there!! oops, pity about work… and the housework… ๐Ÿ™‚

  • What a gorgeous, feminine space! I love all your little, special touches. Just lovely!

  • looks cozy and inspiring

  • Velda says:

    I see why you love your room. It’s welcoming and bright. I could get creative there.

  • Thanks for the tour. It looks lovely! I like your idea to use that 3-tiered serving stand to store your jelly rolls. It solves two problems: where to store that thing to keep it handy should you ever need it and how to display those little rings of beauty. So glad I stopped by Melva’s party even if I was a bit late.
