Look at what I got!

I wanted to title this post either "A Room of Her Own" or "A Room With a View," but I couldn't figure out which literary title to use. Naturally, when faced with a difficult choice, I dump both choices and choose something totally lame.

Now to the heart of the matter. Michelle has moved out, and Tony has moved into her room. That leaves a small, but cozy, bedroom without a purpose in my house. Knitting/sewing room for me!

My stash
My ugly, but comfy, chair with good lighting

A cute built in shelf

My sewing table (the leaf lifts for a huge work surface)

My window with a great view of my overgrown backyard.

There is still a lot of moving to do. I need to set up my TV and all my British drama DVDs that my family hates. I have an old kitchen table that will go in front of the window to give me another work surface for blocking, cutting, or doing homework. However, I have my own room, and I am very happy with it.

I have already done a good deal of knitting and reading up there. My cat thinks I clean the room up for her entertainment. We'll just let her think that. She enjoys the big window and the comfy chair. Not to mention all the yarn to play with.

Hope I didn't make you all too jealous.

Happy Knitting!

Your own room! It looks wonderful. I also have an ugly but comfy chair - mine is plaid. I like the window/view.

WOW! That looks like so much fun! I am so far away from a room of my own that I will just have to envy yours for a couple of decades. Sigh.

Too much fun.

BTW, I like your comfy chair. That looks like quite a lovely little retreat.
