Sewing room update

 My house has been a hype of activity this past week, the concrete has been poured in the ditch for the footings of my sewing room. That was a busy time, husband and number one son had to wheel barrow each load and pour it into the ditch while the builder levelled it all out.
 While they were working hard I was taking photos.
 Concrete all poured and dried, ready for next stage.
 Next was the brick wall which is the foundation.

 This part is to hold the floor up.
 Next to go on is the flooring and the frame, that will be the exciting part. Its really starting to look like a room now. I have so many ideas of how I  want to decorate when the time comes. I'm thinking about furniture and where I want to put it.
I have been sewing  my winter Americana quilt and  its almost finished, Just need to put borders on.
Its been a lovely long weekend, I hope you enjoyed yours and you  found some sewing time.

Gee that was quick, reaqlly quick too me 6 seconds to look at it grow, hope it feels that quick to you. Unfortunately it seems to take forever to plaster , and edges and door painting and bits and bobs seem to take longest. So can I come to the quilting party. YEAH.
I hope you get to enjoy it for years and years

How exciting - heaps of progress. Hopefully you are not like me and get your sewing room and can't find time to organise it!! I need a whole day without little tackers around!! btw, I just adore that Americana quilt and the fabrics are beautiful. Have you posted about it before? I'd love to know the pattern and fabrics you have used.
