2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

September 1, 2012

THE WORK HAS BEGUN...

...on the floor in my sewing room.  I've officially been relocated and it's such a mess.  Of course I wanted to move things methodically, but when someone else is helping  - you just go with the flow.  I'm not complaining - yet that is.  It's not that I'm a completely organized person by any means, but for the most part I can usually find things in my sewing room whenever I need to.  Everything is out of here for the most part, except for this "weighs a ton pattern cabinet", and every drop of the carpet and pad has been removed and carted out the door - THANK GOD!

Next comes cleaning the floor (I just didn't have energy to do it this evening), caulking (then giving it a day to dry), re-painting the moulding, and then the actual staining can begin.  I'm blessed that the flooring, although not perfect, is in pretty good condition.  It saves having to go through a sanding process.

The Living Room all piled up so I can at least get out of the door.

A real mess, but oh so worth it...

  5. If we weren't homies, I'd be jealous! I know you'll enjoy your "practically carefree" floor when the work is finished.

  6. Why on earth would you want to get out the door? You have so much you can do right inside! Actually, you can sneak out the back when your sewing stuff isn't looking, and then it won't know you've gone to do something else.

  10. Super cool, Faye. I abhor the carpet in my sewing room. I get stuck by those darn pins and so does my cat. The flooring looks beautiful! Keep us posted when done.
