Friday night sewing

 Tonight my best sewing friend Cathy is coming over for a sewing night in my new sewing room, yay!!!!!
 We joined Sarah's pre cut sewing session tonight. I have my 2 charm packs of Marmalade cut and ready to sew. I had a layer cake so I cut that up to make the pattern above.
 My sewing room is just about ready, I just need to do a few minor things like finish painting the skirting board on one wall and paint my desk. I have moved everything in and I will share photos over the weekend. The first thing I sewed in my new room was my new curtains, they were too long so I had to take them up.
 I found the perfect beige colour for my curtains, then I needed a new ironing board and as luck would have it, K Mart had it in a colour the same as my curtains so I had to get that. Paul bought me a new mat and of course it matches the curtains as well.  I can hear you all laughing right now.
I have had so much fun buying furniture for my sewing room, you should see my sewing table, its 100 years old and beautiful, I will show you a photo of that to very soon. Today Paul surprised me with this beautiful old chair. He said I needed an "old" chair to sit at my "old" table. I love it and him for thinking of me like that. Thanks honey.
Right Cathy will be here soon and we are going to sew up a  storm. I'll be back over the weekend with lots to show you including my decorating of my room.
I hope I'm not boring you all with all this sewing room talk.
