Happy 2011 !
The last few weeks of 2010 were a continuous blur in my mind. I know we celebrated Christmas and had 2 birthdays (mine included), but other than eating a TON of food, I’m not sure what else we’ve done.
Moving to a new house has been good for us. We are appreciating the blessing of having extra space while being surrounded by less junk (hooray for the ease of donating to the thrift store!). The good news is the sewing room is organized!
The bad news is I’m scared to start sewing in there because I don’t want to get it messy.
I discovered I had WAY too many frames. So I put my old SEW letters in the attic and came up with this:
Ikea shelves are great for fabric storage.
Our old changing table holds bolts of fabric and pattern packaging has it’s own corner.
On top of the changing table is part of my collection of books and mooks.
And my first woodworking project holds a bunch of miscellaneous items.
I learned so much making this little work bench. It’s about 10 years old now. Great Grampa (my husband’s grandfather) made sure I knew that real cabinet makers use screws, not nails. :) I’ll do it differently next time, even though I love how the nails look.
And finally, a little bit of wall storage…
The biggest difference between this room and the room in our old house, besides the increase in space, is that this room has no closet. No place for me to hide things. This is definitely a good thing. While my storage shelving may not be the most beautiful, it’s open and open means that I won’t accumulate a bunch of stuff that I’ll forget I have and then never use.
Wishing you a Happy New Year!
