The move is over!!!

Finally we are MOVED, and my new sewing space is up and running...I was having withdraws..SMILES!!

It took so long to get started again, I had to practice on a couple small projects to get my legs back under me...LAUGHS!!  But I am now back to the projects that I had to put aside for the move and going strong.

I did manage to get a couple gifts completed before Christmas..

 A couple mug rugs for friends who love to ride..



Even though I have new labels, I simply stitch my name in most of my products.






Love the colors on this one...She loved it!!
 A makeup brush for another friend and she loved it too!
When I found this fabric, it screamed her name....LAUGHS
 

Here I added a new label to the front of roll.
 I added contrast with interior fabrics, and covered back fabric with vinyl to keep it clean from the brushes.
That is about all I got finished before Christmas, but I did manage to finish a couple projects I had started during my visit to Texas...They loved them too...It makes me so HAPPY when people like what I make for them and appreciate the love that went into each stitch...

NOW TO THE MOVE.....OMG I HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF!!! I HAVE BECAME A SEWING HORDER!!!

In my last post I promised the steps to my new space...GET READY...it is crazy!!

This is the last of my old sewing space..
look at that 1 lonely window...that was all the natural lighting I had....SADNESS.


And the chaos begins...

 Every thing was just shoved into the room and then I had to make heads and tails of it.

You can see my coffee cup in this one...I drank loads of that.. AND LOOK AT ALL THAT NATURAL LIGHTING....WOOHOO!!!

but I never back down from a challenge..so off to work I go...LAUGHS!!
 I tried to to through things as I organized, but I am thinking I will have to do that again and PURGE MORE!! Here is a neat little cabinet my son found on the side of the road and picked up for me...It is very old..and works great as a printer stand...And I just love it...THANK YOU BLAKE!!

 As you can see I am slowly making progress...LOL










I kept going until I had some room to work and it was getting more organized as I went...

 As you can see the shelves are filling up and still have not got the TV mounted...But hey I do have my stereo up and functional.
 Got to have MUSIC!!
Here I have my track light up over my cutting table and more shelves mounted for more storage..I tried to put things I used most close to what area I use it in..
 Here I mounted my New Shop Vac my oldest son gave me for Christmas...it is great, it has very small attachments that do a wonderful job on my machine when cleaning...gets all the lint and dust right out...BIG SMILES!!
 Finally I have the TV mounted..Gotta have Law & Order SUV..and Castle...


Here you can see part of the antique hanging lamp I rewired and replaced all hardware...It works great over my sewing machine...Lots of extra lighting...You can never have too much lighting..
And now my sewing space is somewhat organized..and my BABY is unpacked and ready for work!!
My little ironing board mounted on the door closest to my machine and all the supplies organized close to hand..And Finally My babies are there for support and any helping hand that can offer...MiWi loves to keep my chair warm...and at times there is a battle to get it back...LAUGHS

And of course Bandit...he just makes sure all is well, mama is ok, etc..and I swear that dog watches my so close, he knows my every move...it is amazing to watch him watch me...You can see the wheels turning...and most of the time you know just what he is thinking...SMILES!!

And that is about it for now.. I have not even gotten to my closet..that is a whole new blog I swear...LAUGHS!!

Just imagine a large walk in closet crammed full of sewing and any other art supplies I need to keep in an controlled environment...but hey it is organized.. I am determined to make the most of any space I have..
Thank goodness, we have a large shop, and my husband has offered an area to me for my studio..BIG SMILES!!
Thank you Hubby...

I know it is a small space, but I am happy with it and I know I will make beautiful things in there...BIG SMILES!!

Well I hope you all enjoyed...and Do come back soon...Maybe now with things somewhat calmed down and I am in a happier home...SO MUCH LIGHT....I love the SUNSHINE!!
I will feel like devoting more time to my blogging...LAUGHS...

Thanks for Stopping By,
