I have been busy as usual and finally taking time to sit down and share something that I am very proud of. Recently my husband Alan have up his room in our house to make sure I had plenty of room to sew. He moved all his MAN STUFF out and helped me set everything up...I am a LUCKY WOMAN to have such a thoughtful MAN.
As it turned out the spare room was perfect for my needs and after it was cleaned out and I had the run of it, I think I turned it into a comfortable, warm space to DESIGN, SEW and QUILT...

I just used a portable table for my cutting and measuring table, it also serves as a quilting table when doing a large piece, again this will all come when he gets everything built...WINK, WINK....
I have lots of colorful boxes for storage, and I like antique things, so I have some of the things I have collected over the years as decoration throughout the room.

It was a (what I call) BABY POOP YELLOW, and had a VERY BAD Attempt at a White paint job on top of that....I actually did not purchase it at first and decided to go back to see if it was still there...I CAN'T IMAGINE WHY ANYONE WOULD NOT WANT THIS BABY... BIG LAUGHS...
Well after a good cleaning and 4 cans of Valspare White Spray Paint, I have a new piece to work with...
I decided to add a little color and started digging through my fabric. I ended up with the PINK...(image that)
I got the MODGE PODGE and went to work. I just simply measured what I needed, pressed my fabric well and cut to size. I applied a layer of Satin Finish Modge Podge to the surface of the back of the cabinet and then laid my fabric in place. I waited a few minutes and then applied a light layer to the top of the fabric and then let dry. The best way to do this I found was to lay the top of the cabinet down on the floor and work on it like that

I just decorated with things with my daily sewing or quilting...Well except my favorite little saying...BIG LAUGHS....
These little bed springs serve kinda as Memo Boards...I clip things to them that I need to keep or remember to do...I find they really come in HANDY...
And I have a Cork Board that I made that also serves the same purpose...LAUGHS!!!!

Another cool little conversation piece, I found on the side of the road ( now this is more like me...lol) it was gold and I think maybe meant for Christmas...I painted PINK and now I hang my cutters and smaller squares and whatever else I might find that fits..
