Rainy Days

Rainy Days are very good pajama days. It's a very good time to be lazy or lounge and read a good book. But, instead I decided to sew. So, (haha) I pulled out the fabric bucket that I stored the quilt fabric in for the quilt I am going to make. Or should I now say making as I have started sewing it together. All the strips are sewn together and half of them have been pressed. Tomorrow, I plan on finish pressing the strips. Then on to the planning and cutting of the strips in to squares. I wish I were a very witty person with loads of things to say, but it is past my bed time and I am not very witty. Good Night for now. I will try to post pictures of what I have accomplished tomorrow. This is the only way my lovely DD knows that I am doing what I tell her is being done. Besides that; she gets to follow along and watch as her quilt is being made.

My Sewing/Bedroom Redone

Wow, I should have been blogging all this time. I just simply forgot to blog about my experience in redoing my sewing/craft/bedroom. It took me several weeks to accomplish such a feat. This is what it looked like before I started.  It was an absolute disaster and very dull indeed.

I now have it all clean and painted white which is what is needed when sewing. To be able to match colors and see everything clearly. The accents are very light aqua shelves painted with bright colors. This is my new room.
See my ironing board to the left?
This is the view from the bedroom door. The valance and ties are made from tablecloth fabric that I had. It goes very well with the bright colors on the shelves

Don't ya just love the new colors in my room? The room is so bright and cheerful now.
My old table looks new again with this aqua
colored paint and all the pretty decals on it.
