May's Sewing room of the month goes to...
Well it's done - I finally finished my sewing room - a project two years in the making! This is what I started with:

Folded yardage. The stuff I use most in the bins turned on their sides (to protect from dust and light) And if you follow along that wall, you'll see:
The frames I use for stretching my fabric on before I paint it, and a little corner:
That has baskets containing my bits and bobs, paints, beads and even more thread!
Underneath my L-shaped tables are baskets containing my dyeing things...
And here's my design wall and Judy.
