Moving the Sewing Room

The sun room was a sitting room for a while after we moved in but we never sat in it. So I converted it to my office and I'm still not in there a lot. Now I'm planning on converting it to my sewing room/office. I just need to figure out furniture and storage, pack things up and move everything.

The sun is REALLY BRIGHT in here and so it gets pretty hot in the summer. I made those bottom-half cafe curtains a few years ago. They have enough coverage for some privacy but not enough to tame the summer sun. Some panels that just stick to the top of the windows with velcro hidden above the window trim might do the trick.

I'm pretty sure that if my sewing room was moved to the sun room I would get more sewing in during the week as well. It's easy to slip into this room and still be engaged with what is going on in the house since it is on the first floor. My current sewing room is upstairs at the end of the hall...miles away from the hub of the house.

I would love to get the move done this quickly but we'll have to see how the weekend goes. There's a lot of figurin' to be done before hand. I'll try to get some good before and after photos for you all.

Cats and sewing rooms... It's a cute mix but can cause trouble. :) My cat loves to sleep over my fabric. Ah, all the fur I have to clean! But I have to ask: with the kind of winter Connecticut should have, what you consider "pretty hot" for summer?

That would be an amazing sewing room. The light in there looks delightful. I can't believe what a nice black cat you have.

What a beautiful room. The light alone, then there seems to be a backyard... first floor... I'd be happy in there.
