We are back in Maine and almost settled. The weather has been ok. Last year it rained forever. So far this summer, a little sun and a little rain. Next week I hope to get back to more regular blogging and visiting.
The cabin is cozy and less cluttered this year. I am not going to be sewing this year because of the bad hip. I tend to make a real “takeover” mess when a quilt is in progress. Knitting and crocheting are a little more compact. I will be getting a new hip in July!
I am joining Chari at Happy to Design for Sunday Favorites and this post is a repeat of my sewing room transformation.
I bought this house before I remarried. My first husband had passed away and I decided that I needed to have a different life. My children were grown and busy with their lives and I was restless. So I bought this home and got a job. I went back to Maine for a quick visit and met Jack and the rest, as they say, is history. My guest room has served as an office and studio for some time and it wasn’t working. So this year I decided to make some major changes….
The room was pretty as long as I wasn’t in the middle of a project or really busy on the computer. The bed and chair were always piled up.
I called in my decorator….
She hired a clerk of the works……(he spent most of his time gawking at her!)
So, I got rid of the double bed for a start and bought a Murphy Bed. Then a new desk was acquired and then a comfy chair. But my favorite is the project table that I got on sale from Pottery Barn. I can still sew back in the corner but my embroidery machines sits happily on the table. Let me show you some new pictures.
On the ottoman is stuff to go through and deal with – I just wanted to give you a sense of the room because I do work in it and although I like things pristine, my creativity spawns clutter!
On the project table I have my Cricut and my embroidery machine. If I were embroidering, there would be several trays of thread. So in this picture, the table looks quite good.
I love the desk. It is very functional but allows me to display some favorite family pieces.
I usually have iTunes playing from the Mac. Right now I am playing Andrea Bocelli.
To my left is the sewing area. The design wall holds my latest effort. I need to get that finished.
Over the weekend, I really tried to put a push on some more organized pictures. So I pretended I needed the guest room for company! I cleaned off the project table except for the embroidery machine and fluffed the pillows and voila! Behind these shelves…..
Ribbons calling my name..
The name of this rose is studio.
So a vase on the way into the room.
I hope you enjoyed this transformation. Now I have a hundred things I want to make and the room will probably never look the same again!
