Gosh -- can't believe I have not blogged since Nov! That was way back in last year! I have been busy and have a great clean and updated sewing room to show you and it you stop by tomorrow I will show you some of the projects I have been working on.
I really wanted to paint my sewing room for some time now and finally after Thanksgiving and after the Craft walk in our town, I had a block of time I could use to paint, clean, clean and more cleaning and organizing than I would wish on anyone -- so here is the "Before" picture -- of course this is after I starting getting things ready to move out of the room and start with a empty room -- to be honest that did not work so well -- our other spare bedroom is not as large and I just have too much stuff -- so I moved the small things out and put the big stuff in the middle and got to work!!
And above is photo 1 -- Love the color! I went with a nice bright yellow and red and white accents -- the dresser is freshly painted so I don't have the drawers closed or even the knobs on -- they are drying on the kitchen counter -- yes you guessed it YELLOW knobs!! This dresser came from my Grandpas house -- it is most likely 100 years or more old -- hubby was not thrilled I was painting it but I am never parting with it, so I am going to enjoy it and that is all that matters --well to me anyways. The dresser is holding my holiday type fabric and my 30's. Notice the bookcase -- I really went thru my books and mags and have a ton in the basement to go thru. I still need to make a new cushion for the chair, This is where Buttons (my cat) spends alot of her time, -- believe me she is glad my (her) room is back in order!
Here is where the sewing actually happens, my sewing corner -- so fresh and clean I just love it -- what a great way to start the new year! Curtains still need to be made --but I do have the fabric and hope to get those done this afternoon!
Here is my cutting area -- I moved it from the other side of the room and it actually gives me much more floor space -- and it is also the entertainment center complete with radio and tv! The bookcase along the wall is one my dad made when I was a kid -- it was stained so I painted it red of course -- I am sure he is smiling down that I have kept it for so long :) And of course Poochie is taking a snooze -- gosh cleaning is hard work she tells me! Still need to put the patterns in the box -- nicely! At least they are all in one spot!
Well I hope you enjoyed the tour and check back tomorrow for some actual sewing progress!
I hope 2014 is a great year for you!
