I haven’t done any sewing in the last couple of days for a very good reason. Remember these cabinets we got last week-end? It is time to move them into my quilt room. I now have sewing room chaos amid a remodel.
I’ve also had this quilting frame for a year that has never gotten set up.
Well Builder Bob came up with the idea of switching my sewing to the computer room because it is bigger – but we walk through this room to go to the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen…..it is a major traffic area….
Or he suggested I take over the living room as it has so much light and a view of the river. He didn’t care if we were always walking through my sewing area as that is where I spend most of my time. Well I moved my sewing machine in there, moved furniture etc and decided I just couldn’t do it. I like having my private sanctuary.
So I tore apart my sewing room – the new cabinets were sitting in the computer room but I didn’t get a good picture of them.
Then I moved more stuff (this was Wednesday and Bob was working) and emptied everything out of the closet on the left….it was the catch all – stuffed full and took everything off the white book shelves.
My dad then helped me take out the clothing rod and top shelf so I could squeeze both white bookshelves in the closet. There is a space about 24 inches I left open in the center and ended up putting the top shelf back in on top of the book shelves.
I decided that I don’t need the quilting frame set up, I can always set it up in the basement temporarily if I need it. My sewing room will just have my 15-91 Singer and one other sewing machine. Tonight we were in measuring and Builder Bob has plans on putting the upper cabinets in, changing outlets and putting in 2 more lights.
We have to work today but will stop and pick up supplies tonight and work on my room Saturday.
Bella decided to find a new place to sleep since the sewing room is in chaos. Not really…..I took this picture a couple weeks ago when my dad went into the bathroom and found her sleeping on top of the cabinet. We figured she must have been chasing a fly or something and discovered a new spot to sleep.
Builder Bob still thinks I’m making a mistake staying in the small room but I like the privacy, what do you think? I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
