This weekend, I really wanted to get some kind of order in the sewing room.
I had so many ideas.
I found extra storage under these tables and managed to put 22 bolts of fabric under there. Note the new rotary cutting station. That’s going to be handy.
And, I found a new place to put the dollhouse.
Unfortunately, you can’t really see into it anymore, but that’s okay.
All the room needs is a few new pillows and a cozy quilt and it will be all ready for me to sew there.
Except for one small detail.
It’s in the dollhouse. Now, who wouldn’t love to work in that great little room?
And, to think, just a few days ago, it looked like this.
That’s quite a difference.
I almost titled this blog post That guy must be nuts!
So, that’s how I spent a portion of my weekend. Fortunately, not all of it, tho I can certainly see how someone could get all bound up in having to create a perfect scene (the star quilt is actually quilted…not pieced, but it is quilted). And, then have dolls to play in it. Fortunately, I’m just enjoying the opportunity to express myself creatively without actually having to ask Rob if we can paint the dining room (but I did sneakily introduce the subject of a new dining table recently).
The doors in the room are the real focal point and I considered papering over them, since they don’t open, but then decided to create the effect of the doors being there by gluing a piece of clouds in the sky fabric to the wallpaper and then gluing the door pieces to that. Lots of work with tweezers.
They don’t have knobs yet, but they will. One day. That’s the beauty of it…I don’t have to install door knobs today, just to keep the burglers out.
Everybody have a fun and light April Fool’s day.
