I love my sewing space.  It makes me happy.  It is loaded with tons of natural light and has just enough space to spread all my things out, but still feel a bit cozy.  The picture above is the aftermath of what happens after a project where there is muslin in the floor, scraps everywhere a la Eleanor Burns, and you had better where shoes because I haven't broken out the super magnet to pick up the pins.  

This is my baby.  A Juki TL-2010Q.  She is fast and reliable.  She weighs like 40 pounds because she is mostly made of awesome metal.  Her automatic cutter is better than most machines I have tried and I love her more than anything.  And I say that even as she sits beside a fancy Husqvarna embroidery machine.  Most sewing of the sewing I do involves a straight stitch and my Juki does that beautifully.  I bought her online from Sewing Machines Plus and it was a great experience.  Good price and fast shipping.
And this is my infamous stash....or at least some of it.  I have two other closets....but hey who doesn't, right? he.he.  (long uncomfortable silence.)  
My space suits me.  I can sew and create jewelry and do whatever else I want.  When I have had enough, I can walk out and close the door behind me and know that the mess behind the door is mine and NOBODY can SAY A WORD to me about it.  I love that!  

Thanks for letting me share my space with you.  I have loved seeing your spaces over the years, so I thought I would share mine.

    I am a singer/songwriter, torn between my corporate life and my creative life, who just so happens to come from sewing roots deeper than the swamp, who still believes it's better to do it yourself.

    So, why 2AM?  Because, just like any good musician, I am nocturnal.....and my creative brain likes to catch its creative wind then... unfortunately my body normally shuts down on me then.... Go Figure... And sleep normally wins.
