Great Sewing and Craft Work Room

Isn't this wonderful? I'm well on my way to putting my third floor in order so I can work up there again. For a long time, it has been a repository for things that didn't have a home. I'm almost finished and I'm so happy. Below you will see the small, long section of my attic where I had a window installed last year when I had my house painted. It is now a packing and wrapping room for gifts and my ebay endeavors. I'm back on track again and it feels so good. 

There is no heat or airconditioning in this part of my attic that has the lowest roofline and no dormers. The airconditioning unit is behind the doors to the right and I could always have a vent put in this area but so far it hasn't been necessary. I have to move my table when I have the unit serviced. There is a door where I was standing to take this photo so I can close this area off completely. When I was remodeling my cottage, I never imagined I would outfit the room like this but I'm glad I have it. It's deeper than it looks in this photo and I can stand up straight in the middle. The doorway is low and I still bump my head on a regular basis. Enjoy your Sunday and I'll see you later. xo

How exciting. Nothing like having a dedicated work room that you like being in.

I like your room much better than the first one shown! Attic rooms have such charm and as with all the other decorating in your house, you've made this space comfortable, cozy and very inviting.

Mama Pea -- Thanks. I show the larger attic room that's adjacent to this one when I get it together. I'm well on my way so it will be soon. It's over my living room and overlooks my kitchen and the dormer overlooks the back of my property. It's a really great space with heat and A/C too.
xo, Rosemary

I love seeing photos of your house and your efforts to make it special. You're a woman of "action".

Oh how wonderful. I love your little work area!
It looks so neatly organized...and out of the way must be nice too.
Maybe you should wear a helmet when your go up... so not to bump your head. ;)

What a wonderfully organized and extremely good use of this attic space. I love everything about it. You are so industrious and have organized this area to perfection. It must be very pleasing to work in it.

I always think it is such a special treat when you give us a peek into your cottage.
