Sewing room,,,

I am sooo excited,, after about 10 yrs,, I finally have a new sewing area,, this is what the old one looked like,,,I used to always say that I didn't have any more room left,, that we were going to have to start on the ceiling,, well i now see just how much waisted space we had on the wall,,,,
ok, excuse all the clutter,,, and I took these pictures,,,

the books by the computer, setting on the shelf,, they are my design/online class/project binders,,,
And now,,,, drum roll,, I love, love, love it,,
We took down that one shelf,, (that was pulling away from the wall already),put in a sheet of pegboard 4x8 ft.. he put the top brace board(for lack of a better name for it), going across the top,, then he put in 4 verticle boards in,,and nothing in the bottem,,, he told me it always happend that something always falls in behind the pegboard and gets trapped by the horizontal board,, well there are none aside from the top one,,
All of my thread is up where I can get to it easily,, I even have some more space to fill in to the right of the thread racks,,, I told my DH,, after looking at other ladies sewing rooms for years,, I am finally looking at my own,, you can't imagine how good this feels,, I don't have to look for things,, or move stuff around to be able to sew or embroidery, I just go over set down and go to it,,, it makes me feel like doing something,,,, or sewing something.. :)
DH took these...he told me after getting the room done that "I need a bigger room"... well I could have told him that,, what with my machines,, material, table and all, yes,, a bigger room would be nice,,,,

Did you buy your thread holders or have them made?

Very nice room indeed. We just moved and I got a new room. I just love it. My next project in that room is to buy pegboard so I can use it to hang some items up.

I do love to see wonderful organization. The threads are as lovely as a painting on the wall.
