What you have all been waiting for.

 Well my sewing room is finally finished and I can finally move in. I am very excited and I can't wait to move my fabrics and things from the laundry. They have lived in there for 6 years and believe me it was getting crowded in there. Probably because I keep buying fabrics and making quilts.
 I  moved the girls in and they were thrilled with their new room, they got a bit bored sitting in the hall way, now they watch me sew and give me some advice when I need help choosing just the right fabrics.
 The floor went in last Monday and it looks beautiful. It really finishes off the room. Then on Tuesday the builder came back and put the frames around the door and window and the skirting board.
 My husband surprised me with a TV mounted onto a moveable bracket, it has a built in DVD player. I came home from work and there it was. Thankyou Paul. You're a sweetie.
 I have 5 down lights and they really light up the room well. I'm glad I thought of those.
 Paul has been putting my storage cupboards together. I didn't hear too many swear words so I think they went together quite easy.  Whew.
 Here they are ready to be filled with fabrics and lots of other goodies I have collected over the years.
 I have a little office corner which I love. The shelves will be filled with all my favourite things. I can sit at the desk and read, use my computer and whatever I like really. I plan to paint the desk white, Paul has already sanded it back for me.
It was this gastly bright purple colour when we bought it. For $25 I thought it was a bargain.


So over the next few days I will be moving things in, we got a beautiful oak table today that is over 100 years old, Its going to be my sewing and cutting table and will go in the middle of the room. I'll share more pictures as the room gets full.
I just can't wait to sit in there surrounded by all my things and my stash and just sew. Sigh...

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