My daughter's school is closed this week for winter break. I guess since Florida doesn't really experience winter, many families go where the snow is. We go to Montana.
I thought I would take this opportunity to show you where I sew when I'm in Montana. My machine shares space with an assortment of items from ski boots to paper towels.

My sewing machine used to hang out in the bedroom, but my family frowns upon sewing when we are all together. Recently I relocated my sewing machine and supplies into the mudroom so I could sew quietly and without interrupting my family in the early morning hours or late night when the house is asleep.

This trip, however, I have been sleeping in to rest up before QuiltCon next week!!! The only sewing I have done this week is to make a pincushion.
I followed Bari J's tutorial to make the pincushion and stuffed it with crushed walnut shells. The cushion isn't as fat as I'd hoped. I brought the shells from home in a ziploc bag not realizing how much was needed.

Here are a few more pictures of my sewing space. Just keeping it real. You'll notice my sophisticated and creative sewing machine cover there. I guess I haven't hung up my JMR wallhanging yet either.

Right next to my machine is the area I use for a cutting table. Invariably I need to rearrange the overflow of paper towels, Keurig k-cups, and miscellaneous sewing supplies.
One shelf in the pantry cabinet is utilized for my fabric. As you can see, the other shelves hold important necessities such as bug spray, sunscreen, napkins, dog toys and gift bags.
I do love my sewing closet. I also love that my family would rather I spend time with them ;-)
Thanks for stopping by. Happy stitching,
