I have hit another brick wall with my sewing room setup. I have WAY TOO much fabric, patterns, etc. for the space. Now looking into shelving to go up toward ceiling.
We still have boxes to unpack and somewhere in some box are my scissors, rotary cutters, and more. When the movers were unloading the truck I thought I caught all of the boxes marked sewing. Obviously not as there are more boxes unfortunately two boxes deep to get to at the moment.
With the room in chaos at this time, I could not cut out anything if I found said scissors. I was going to post a picture of how it looks now and realized that I have not yet found my camera. I have the camera stand, not the camera!!!!
Years ago I would not have let the movers pack and move my sewing machines and essential sewing items. This time I did let them move the sewing room and for the big things such as machines and serger, plus sewing and cutting table, all made it without damage.

I have actually made some progress with one side of the room. I thought I would share a couple of pics of the room thus far. The struggle with the room is that my computer and "office" if you will are in the same room as the sewing room. In my other house I had a little nook for my "office".

Here is the organized side of the room
I have the sewing machine and serger set up. The white table will be moved somewhere(?). This is my cutting table and opens up on both sides. I will have to leave one side down, I think, to make it work. What you can't see is that next to the serger is my coverstitch machine, currently sitting on a wood tv tr…
Part of the reason for locating to NC was to live close to area beaches, not right on the beach, nor one or two blocks over. My beach drive is 30 to 45 minutes away, but that is close enough and affordable.
My DH and I have good friends from high school that still live in our hometown of Danville, VA. They had plans to go to Myrtle Beach which is two hours away from where we live. So we took time from unpacking and setting up house to go visit our friends for two days. It was a lovely break from our current routine. The weather was perfect as the week before we had a monsoon for several days in a row.
My DH and I are(were) DINKS-double income, no kids. We love other people's children and got to spend 2 1/2 days with a houseful of young kids and teenagers. Goodness, they have a lot of energy. There were other adult family members included in the household. It was an eight bedroom, 7 bathroom house with a view of the beach and porches on all levels-4. NO ELEVATOR. I defini…
