I think this impulse of mine to clean and organize has something to do with the appearance of these.
|It’s official – I have spring fever. We’ve been extremely blessed with temps in the mid-70’s for the last couple of weeks. I’ve been soaking up sunshine and airing out the house with all of the windows open. Ahhhh… It’s so nice. |
In other news, I’m scheduled for surgery on Monday. M-O-N-D-A-Y! I’ve been cleaning and organizing like a mad woman knowing I’ll be very much handicapped for weeks. Somebody should tell my bones it’s almost Spring, for crying out loud! They don’t have permission to misbehave this time of year. I’m yearning to get my hands dirty. But, that’ll have to wait. This time, my new neurosurgeon will be using bone from my hip to give my neck some extra help with the mending process. I’m hoping this will be my last surgery.
Enough of that… would you like a peak at my new sewing studio?
|I’m not quite finished with it, but I’m happy with how it’s looking so far. |
The paint color is Faded Ink by Martha Stewart. I adore the color for these walls.
I pulled out my favorite fabrics from my stash for display (and hopefully some inspiration.)There’s so many projects I’ve been wanting to tackle, but my neck hasn’t been cooperative. I’m optimistic that’ll change soon.
|If you don’t yet have one of these nifty storage caddies, go out right now and get one. They’re perfect for holding sewing notions and patterns. The best part? I can roll it right over to where I need it. Bliss.|
I love looking at everything all organized and color coded. It brings me joy.
It’s all about the simple things people.
This little gem has wheels, too. I am a blessed seamstress.
The bottom shelf holds all of my knitting needles, and the black cabinets hold my children’s art supplies.
Wonder of wonders, I actually enjoy sitting here again! This space has been in disarray for months.
I don’t know why I waited so long to do this…
|Oh wait, that’s right. My neck. But now that I know they’ll be fixing me up Monday, I figured it didn’t matter if I wiggled something out of place!|
I adore old mason jars. They’re wonderful for storing so many things.
I actually use them to store dry food goods as well. (With new lids, of course.)
If I happen to be sitting here, I most certainly have Pandora blaring. Coldplay radio. Give it a listen.
First up when I get my neck in working order is this precious memory game. That Alicia Paulson is one crafty chic!
I highly recommend Stitched in Time if you enjoy sewing for your family. Love it.
Before I let you slip away, I just have to show off this bench and shelf my sweetheart made for me.
Isn’t it wonderful? I think so. And best of all, we now have a proper place for our shoes and coats.
(And a temporary place to put sleeping bags until they make it to our weekend backyard campout.)
