One wall and one closet done!
At the moment, my biggest WIP is getting *My New Sewing Room* up and organized. While we are painting and such, I am still sewing in my little corner of the dining room and I am working on some blocks for a swap and some group quilts. I am really looking forward to having my own sewing space where I will not have to pack everything away for company coming and the long holiday season.
This is the design seed palette I chose for my sewing room ...
I love this blog!
Here are the paint colors I picked ...
Here are a few more pictures ...

first paint coat, closet and walls
I am really liking the aqua blue on the walls!
The bright sunflower quilt is one of my favorites. I put it up only for this photo op. It is now safely tucked away in another room and may or may not find a permanent home in my sew sewing room.
This is our short term plan to get me into my own sewing room before the holiday season is upon us. Since we are doing this on a budget, we are painting just over the "fake knotty pine" paneling that is almost 40 years old. Long range plans are to eventually replace the old drywalling and the dropped ceiling in this room, but that is the long-term plan.
I will not be buying any furniture for this room yet, either. Instead I will be making use of the existing closets and shelving, some plastic storage drawer units, tables that we already have and one storage type piece of furniture which my daughter left behind for now as there was no room in her apartment. It will soon be home to lots of fabric and sewing stuff.
I have a few "must haves" on my short term list. A design wall of some sort is up near the top of the list. I have a few ideas of how I want to make this.
Time to get some work done.
Have a happy quilty day!
