Joining the "Where Do You Blog? Party!

Kate at Centsational Girl is hosting a "Where Do You Blog? Party" and I'm attending!
This is the view from my bedroom into my office/sewing room/studio.
Welcome in! This is a small space which I added to the house before I moved in. As much as I loved the house, originally there was no place for me to work. THAT wouldn't work!

These french doors were found stored in the basement when I bought the house. Originally, they separated the living room from the dining room and really weren't needed there. I love french doors and knew I wanted to use them somewhere. When I started planning my addition they turned out to be perfect doors for a large closet. As much as I love sharing with you, I'm not going to open these doors for you. You probably understand...

Here is my laptop where it always stays. It's an old computer and although I have wireless service, this computer isn't wireless capable. So, I ALWAYS blog at this spot.

However, I'm soon to be upgraded!!! My "new" laptop is on the left here. It's actually my daughter Kate's from her four college years. She got a new one for graduation. I'm very happy to now get this one! I've yet to take it in to my handy/dandy computer guy and get it serviced and everything transferred from one to the other. I'm not tech savvy, so I'm not looking forward to the process. However, I am looking forward to when it's done. I think the larger screen will be particularly nice.

My computer sits in the corner. You can see one of my sewing machines on the left. This is where I do all my sewing. Although this room is a small space, its saving grace is the view from my desk. I have a whole bank of windows that overlook the back garden which is always a wonderful view. "Thank you" to my sister Nancy, who is the gardener around here. Be sure to check out her blog at Nanniepannies.

Moving around from the desk to the left you see a corner storage for fabric and my work table.

The work table actually has a leaf to extend it, but I never use it because the space is so tight.

Since space is tight, I try to make use of ALL of it. Under the table is a small CD player and under that, storage for yarn used to make my knitted lamb kits, which you can find at my Etsy Shop.

Note my sheep lamp which I've had for years and still love it as much as when I bought it. The print of the knitting sheep was a gift many years ago from a friend.

An idea board is a necessity for a studio. This one was made by covering foam board with a fabric I like and then framing it.

This brings us full circle around the room. If I turn around from my computer, this is the view back into my bedroom. (The door on the right is the bathroom.) So, now you know where to imagine me when you read posts from Buttermilk Cottage!

Be sure to visit Centsational Girl for many inspiring blogging spaces.
