My Creative place....

Well lets say ..

So.. shall we start a tour of my de-cluttered sewing room...

It all started with me buying a glass cabinet...and having the glorious idea of having it in my sewing-room ...
it was just that I had to reorganize everything to get it in place!!
Silly me!! :o)
But finally after a lot of not so nice words popping out of my mouth...
and the THINKING hat on.. I managed to squeeze it in... :o)

And I love it.. it holds all those things I had all over the room before
 and collecting DUST...
Yes I have that in my!!!
Now I can see where everything is...
except for all those little bits that I have stuffed in tins and cant see!!!
Oh.. and there you can see a pretty new little bundle of joy...

I had the amazing  luck in winning it from Fig Tree Quilts and Joanna earlier !!
Looks lovely right!! :o)

Moving to the left I have a little cabinet filled with this and that.. 
and a little place to show some quilts....
Further to the left I have a guest bed..
So Marica.. if you come some day you have to sleep in another
and hope you wont fall out of the bed..;O)

That was the first corner...:o)
Think its time for a cup of tea for me... 
(promise to be back and show the other side of the room...)
and perhaps a book or two to read and sigh about!!

Can you tell me..
How in the world do you do when you sew!!
Think I lost it!!

And its a little bit of grumbling here from me..
I bit off a piece from a tooth this morning.. 
Lucky me.. 
Glasses yesterday .. the tooth today...
well well....
as long as my boys are having a great time over at sunny Mallorca Im happy..
sun...the pool.. great food... and lovely tennis courts..:O)
at least that is what they tell me..:o)

And OH.. I have a question for you in the USA....
Where is it the best to buy a San Jose Shark t-shirt for Viktor????
Birthday coming up here!!! :o)

LOVE ...:o)


  1. Your room is so pretty Stina! I especially love the moda precuts stacked in the dish racks - ingenious!

  2. I can see why you had to have the cabinet, it's so pretty. Love your tidy corner, so feminine.

  3. Oh so pretty and tidy! I would feel so comfy there! As for the shirt....try Amazon and see what they come up with.

  4. Well done! It looks great. Love the new cabinet. I see some pretty lace and buttons!!

  5. I could use your glass cabinet but not in the sewing room. We were looking for one to display my glass baskets & toothpick holders in. Yours would have been a good one.

    You are definitely a pastel quilter.

  6. Its looking long will it stay that way (evil grin)

  7. Oh my! Your sewing room is beautiful! The cabinet is perfect, and I would have fallen in love with it too. In fact I have!

    All your little "touches" are wonderful, from the basket of little quilts to the quilt on very pretty little quilt on the wall.

    But how are you going to get anything done now? How will you be able to concentrate while surrounded by such pretty, peaceful loveliness? :)

  8. I forgot! San Jose Sharks t-shirt!

    I would try to Official NHL online shop, they have a San Jose Sharks page.

    Or you could call the Sharks Shop at the arena, they would have the most playoffs-related t-shirts --
    525 W. Santa Clara Street
    San Jose, CA 95113
    408/999-6810 or 877/424-6672

    Good luck!

  9. Stina , your room looks wonderful , very inviting and the new cabinet looks terrific and oh all those yummy fabrics such inspiration to have around you !

  10. What a beautiful space you have created.
    Everything looks so lovely. Your cabinet is beautiful and oooh, lots of yummy fabrics!


  11. I just love your room !! And your quilts too !! a lovely space !!

  12. Stina!!!! Your room looks so beautiful, I love it, all of it.. Your cabinet is so pretty and perfect for the room. Oh and congratulations to your daughter too. I loved what you wrote me about how spending time with your parents made you feel peaceful. When I think about it I felt the same way with mine and I hope our children feel the same way about us!!! Enjoy every minute, hugs!!
    p ess Love the little lavender stitchery in the top right of your header, is that a pattern?

  13. Hei Stina!
    Første gang jeg kommenterer på bloggen din, selv om jeg har fulgt deg lenge. Hvilket nydelig syrom du har fått! Og for en jobb du har gjort:-)
    Quiltene dine er vakre, og jeg synes du bruker så fine farger.

    Klem fra Synnøve.

  14. Olá! Adorei seu Blog, valeu apena visitar. Tem coisas muito bonita, parabèns! Convido a me visitar. - Abraços, Algecira Castro

  15. Oj så underbart mysigt det blev i "mitt" lilla hörn ;-) Tror nog att de ska gå bra att sova där också..


  16. You are an inspiration. That corner looks very nice. The cabinet is such a good way to dispay things. And I like the way you use baskets.

  17. What a gorgeous room for your guests to sleep in!
    Breaking teeth must be catching, I broke mine earlier in the week and had a trip to the dentist on Wednesday, it's all better now but I could've bought alot of fabric for the money I had to pay!

  18. Hey Stina! WOW!! You were another brave girl to show your 'before' mess and boy does your reorganisation and tidy up look FABULOUS!! The cabinet is wonderful and I can see why you couldn't resist it ... well worth the rearranging ... especially since the result is to fantastic! :0) Wonderful creative space, cosy guest snug ... it's got the lot ... well done!!! Bear Hugs! KRIS

  19. Your room was pretty before but now....
    Can you come and help me fix mine! It really needs it :)

  20. What a lovely room you have. It would be so nice to wake up in the bed surrounded by all that gorgeousness. I really like your glass cabinet ... a perfect place to keep everything dust-free!

  21. I think you did a wonderful job on your sewing room. If I were to stay over at your house, I think I would stay in the room and look at all of the pretties. And it would inspire me to get sewing. Look forward to seeing the other side.

    My husband is quite the sharks fan. YOu can find quite a bit at Yahoo sports shop..
