|Two of these cone thread racks use to sit on my book shelves and took up valuable shelf space|
|I use to pray that my bookshelves wouldn't fall down (they were self installed) - don't think I'll have a problem with them now that they're bolted into the wall|
|The miniature luggage trunks are the new home of all my lining fabric. (I got the idea for them from Ebony)|
|Lady Faye is no longer crowded in the corner in front of the floor mirror|
|The hook for the water bottle is bolted. Now I can fill it up without worrying that it will pull off the wall|
|The cable box and dvd player use to teeter on top of the little television. Now they sit securely on their very own shelf.|
Being displaced for 10 weeks didn't stop my sewing, but it was a HUGE inconvenience - at times nerve racking. I did so much complaining in my mind (and to a few very close friends), and once even threatening to move out. I feel so sorry for my Mother - she is always a sounding board for all my venting and complaining. In her words, "Linda, it's going to be so worth it". Mother you are ALWAYS right!
I've only made curtains once and that was a very long time ago. They were nothing to brag about. I do plan on making the ones for this room. I've also got plans in my head for track lighting over the sewing table - but that is for later on. I want this room to be a beautiful reflection of me, something cheery and pretty because I spend so much of my time in here. After all, it's the place where I create, the place I de-stress and actually relax - the place I'd most like to be....
