Well, the time has come to start packing up my quilt room. We have been doing little projects all around the house to get it looking ship-shape for the sale and I have been keeping my quilt room as is in the meanwhile. But we are now nearing that time when we are ready to start patching the little nail holes and removing my bookcases and painting over my quote~ GASP!
I have to take out of all my quilt paraphernalia and make that room look like a dining room again. I have been busy making us a dining room set….the chairs are all painted, but a few still need a coat of wax, and I still need to reupholster the seats on 3 of them. But that is easy. I just LOVE how the table turned out~exactly like I had imagined!
I think this set will make our “dining room” look very sweet and functional!
As for the room, it is not quite ready to host its new furniture….I started packing up my quilt books and it turns out I have a LOT of quilt books ( who knew?! :D). That little face you see peeking out of the word “books” on the top box is describing how I’m feeling about all this packing up ;).
Anyway, while I was doing all this packing up I thought I had better take some pictures of all the elements that I love in my room so that I can recreate them in our new house. And as I was taking those pictures, I could imagine certain people just thinking “what a clutter!”.
But to me it is not clutter. It is inspiration all around! I love seeing the sweet little statues and the colorful buttons in their wonderful jars, and the fabric all just there to admire. All these things make my room a happy place and a space I want to be in. So in my next sewing room ( hopefully I will have one~fingers crossed!) I will pull all those things out again and put them front and center! Never mind how cluttered someone else thinks it is…it is mine and I’m the one who has to love that space! So hopefully I will have some fabulous quilt room decor and reveal to share with you in a few short months ( we have an eye on a house that comes with a “sewing room”, already all set up with lots of outlets and a tile floor!)
In the meantime I wanted to share some other items that are inspiring me these days…the weather is finally starting to warm up and my bulbs are peeking out of the ground, so yesterday I treated myself to a little retail therapy and came home with these fun Spring items:
As you can tell there has not been a lot of quilting time, but I do have a few little fun things to share with you next week!
Until next time~happy creating!
