The Big News

Remember last week when I was talking about my exciting news. Well I'm here today to share it with you. As most of you know I do all of my sewing at the kitchen table. Well thats about to change as we are renovating our house and I am getting my very own SEWING ROOM. I still quite can't believe it. The picture above and below is where the new room is going to be.

Everytime I sew which is mostly on the weekends I have to get everything out, then just before tea time I have to pack it all away and then start over the next day. It does get a bit annoying but I have no choice.

I am hoping you will follow me on our little journey while my room gets built. I want to share progress photos and ask a few questions along the way.




This is where the room will go. We have removed the garden and the grass.




Next we had to dig a big trench for the concrete to go in. Notice I said we. Well thats not really right. My husband and number one son did all the digging. I just kept them fed and watered while they were working.







Our builder is fantastic, he is open to my ideas and he has given us lots to think about. The reason we are doing all the hard digging ourselves is to save money. Anything we can do without the builder we will. That leaves us more money at the end to buy me new furniture. This week the concrete is being poured so I'll be back to share a few photos as we progress.

You can't imagine how excited I am, or maybe you can. I have so many decorating ideas. I want to make things to put in my room.... oh the ideas are endless.









I have made myself a little tumbler table runner, I wanted something bright and cheery for the kitchen table .











Such an easy pattern and so much fun to make.


I hope I don't bore you in the coming months talking about my new sewing room, I'll try not to talk about it every post.


Have a wonderful day and I hope you find some sewing time.

That is wonderful! It will make such a difference for you as you can leave your sewing machine set up. It is easy to just sit down and sew for a short time or a long time and you will be able to get much more done (if that is possible)!
