Challenge...what does your crafting or sewing area look like???

I was issued a challenge to show the world my cafting and sewing area.  I know that I took a bunch of pictures, but only these two remain on the camera! :-)
This is the biggest room in my house and it is nearly always overrun with my "projects"!  If it ever gets cleaned and cleared, I can't seem to get the creative groove going again.  So it seems I am more creative in my cluttered mess, than an organized (as I prefer it) room.

Bunko Gifts

Bunko was at my house in July and I was in the picnic spirit!! I embroidered all the prize winners their own person picnic bag.
I purchased cheap bags with an inspirational message from the Dollar Tree and embroidered each with ants and a watermelon.  Then I embroidered ants along the edges of a cotton dishrag and made it a "fancy" picnic napkin.  I also embroidered a feedsack with a picnic poem phrase in one corner and picnic themed pics in the other corners.  All of the embroidery designs I got for free off of I also purchased a small plastic container for food and a waterbottle.  Put them all in the bags and whalllaaa....a personal picnic kit for one! :-)
