My adult children convinced me to re-do my sewing room -- drag everything out, clean the room, paint the walls, sort and put back in what I intend to use. Uffda! What a big job! The room used to be my daughter's, and when she was 16 she painted it blue with white puffy clouds on it. That was 20 years ago... it was due for a face lift.
I chose creamy yellow for the walls. I am so happy with my choice! I love it! Here is the room when I started moving back in. It was pristine and so neat. Since then I have continued to sort and move things back in. It is a little more "full" now.. and even has a mess or two here and there as I have resumed sewing. I'm trying hard to not let it turn into a post-tornado look. I want to honor the gift that my kids gave me: a newly-organized and beautiful sewing room.
Cleaning one's sewing room is a big motivator. I found projects I had forgotten about, and fabric and blocks I don't even remember ever owning. It is fun to get busy putting them together. Here are some of my projects since the renovation:
I also made two pillowcases, with more pillowcases as well as an endless number of quilts in the works. As I write this post, my husband is in my sewing room installing a design wall for me. He's the best!
Happy Valentine's Day!
