It has been over 6 weeks since I started renovating my sewing room. I won’t call it a studio because it is not huge and spacious nor is the light that good. But it is a good sized room though not a shape that I think works well for quilting, at least for me. There are windows or a door on every wall in this room. This really makes it hard to arrange things in a room.
This week I had my laminate flooring installed. I got all my wood blinds installed except one, I bought the wrong size. One out of nine isn’t bad, is it? And it was for the door. I also got two walls lined with shelves 11 down from the ceiling. These shelves are for my tins. I love my tins and really like the way they look. I prefer old and new advertising tins. I will post pictures when I get everything back in place, especially of the tins.
But I am now ready to start moving things back into the room, FINALLY! My cutting table is in there and my two sets of shelves are attached to the wall. I am about to set up my sewing table and get my computer back in place. Then it will be time to start making trips back in from the garage and fabric from the closet. I can hardly wait.
Speaking of the garage, I was looking for something in the garage to do the last of my painting this afternoon. We leave the garage door up a lot when the weather is nice. This morning I noticed a bird in there. He spent the night in there. I have a barrister bookcase out there that has two baskets of fabric on one shelf. They stuck out so I could not close them. While looking for whatever it was I was looking for, I found the start of that bird’s nest in one of those baskets. It is not the first time we have had wren’s nests in the garage, but must they build one in my nicely folded, washed, ironed orange and rust fabric? I will keep a better eye open until all my stuff is back where it belongs.
Until next time,
