WOW November 13, 2013

I’m so excited to show you my finished sewing room.  Last Friday the carpet was installed and my husband spent about 6 hours building the new bookshelves and buffet table that we purchased for my new room.  Then Saturday he installed the window blinds and helped me move all my furniture and boxes in to the room.  I spent form 5am to 8pm putting everything away and organizing. Sunday I was gone all day so I couldn't get finished until Monday witch was Veteran’s Day and I didn't have to work.  So another 12 hours on Monday and I’m so organized.  I still have to hang quilts on the walls and make and install my design wall hoping to do that next weekend.   

I feel like the luckiest quilter in the world to have this great space to work and to be able to walk around my cutting table is wonderful before it was in a corner.  The other major improvement is having all my fabric in one place where I can see it, before it was in bins under my cutting table.  I have to say the only bad thing about that is now my husband knows how much fabric I really have. Oh well he will get over it.
Next week I will post a few more photos once I have decorated and hopefully I will actually have some sewing to show you.

Regards and have a good week.

New bookcases w/doors
New buffet table will use for thread and other odds and ends
this is the new window and my design wall will go on the big space to the left of it.
I have so much light

OMG I love my fabric!!!!!!

WOW – November 6, 2013

Well it’s been two month since I have posted to my blog.  It’s also been at least six weeks since I have sewed even one stich.  My oldest son Ian moved in to his condo at the end of September and the whole family helped him and it went relatively smooth. So the beginning of October I started remodeling his room to be my new sewing studio.  I had a contractor install a new window and an electrician put in 14 lights.  I will never have a hard time seeing again.  Next my husband and dad installed crown molding and my husband and myself painted.  Tomorrow is the big day the new carpet gets installed and that is the last thing that needs to be done before I can move in.  Now my daughter Chloe and I will not be sharing rooms anymore she will continue to have the room downstairs and I will be moving upstairs.

These are some before and during photos I will post the after photos next week.  Then I will have to make up all that sewing that I wasn’t doing the last six weeks. 

Have a great week!
