    Love the orange walls and the easy access to the out of doors that I see in Alison’s sewing space!

    Love the space but that stool doesn’t look like something I’d want to sit on for very long!

    Nice space – I like to be able to look outside. Not only does the chair look hard, it looks too low.

    I like that little vintage sewing basket-looking piece next to the sewing table. Anyone know what that is?
