Purple machine for the purple room!

I'm been meaning to post pictures of my sewing room for weeks now! For Christmas, J made me an awesome table for sewing and cutting! He had been working on it in the garage for weeks, and kept telling me he was making a tool bench for the garage. I completely fell for the trick! He had it all put together on Christmas morning, and boy was I excited! My parents bought me a new sewing machine for my birthday, so now the sewing room is well stocked! My new machine is the Quilter's Companion by Janome, and it rocks my world. It's so much quieter than my old Brother, and has so many cool features! The blocks you see on the floor are for a new quilt I'm working on. It's a Crazy Eight's quilt, using 8 fat quarters from my stash. I'm making it to use for my first try at Free Motion quilting, so we'll see how that goes eventually. I love how everything is so organized in my sewing room. I keep the iron and ironing board in there, so it's so easy to press my seams.
The purple room had a lot of my things from college in it, that I didn't want to part with, or didn't know what to do with. J and I spent one whole day organizing, trashing, and donating a bunch of old stuff. It was awesome to get it all cleaned out!
In case you can't tell, the machine is purple! Perfect for the Purple Room!!
