What inspiring things hang in your sewing room?

I haven't finished the XXXs and OOOs yet, so I'll show some of the things I have hanging in my sewing room that inspire me.

Here's one that you will want to make larger... Just click on the picture. I imagine it as a quilt... all those colors as fabric.  I have seen some quilts made like this in a magazine...   I know, I'm crazy.   (Sorry about the glare.)

Okay, don't look at the clutter on the bulletin board, but the quote itself. It reminds me that "a beautiful thing is never perfect."  I'm hoping I can make some beautiful things. 

This it the wonderful item next to the pink sewing piece from Em, as mentioned yesterday.  My DD made it for me 30 years ago.  It says "Moms the Greatest!". I love that piece!

And lastly a church program that's about 33 years old... I was asked to make a painting out of it... and did.  I love the sentiment.

So that's your mini tour  -  some of my favorite things.  What do you have hanging in your studio?
Love you all, especially the contributors to today's post.  Hope you all are feeling dandy!


  1. I love those quilts that are made from a billion tiny pieces to make up an overall picture. The patience required to make one of those must be incredible.

    Thanks for the tour. The most inspiring thing in my sewing room is stacks and stacks of fabric ...everywhere. I really must get an inspiration board in there!

  2. Awesome Quilt Art.
    My sewing area has stacks of BRIGHT, COLORFUL, FUN fabrics that inspire me to make happy quilts that make me smile : )

  3. I don't have one but have lots of b its and pieces hanging up on my cord board in my computer and art room.

  4. I have things from dearly loved people hanging in my sewing room at the moment. I also have some dolls and teddies as well as the words Love Hope and Faith dangling from the board. Mostly though the room needs tidying so I can see whyat else is in there!

  5. Ooooh you really should make thart art picture into a quilt!! I absolutely love it!
    Thanks for the tour in your garden and studio. I have never seen a real life ginko tree.
