One more week ...

Not much was done this past week here in my world.

I could not do a lot.

I did finish up a couple things that just needed a few finishing touches.

So I just laid around mostly with heating pad, meds and cups of tea either looking at mags or reading.

At week’s end felt good enough to do more sorting, packing and moving things out of my sewing room.

Here are a couple pics of it now. Yes still more to pack up.

Stirred up some dust as well!!

Looking towards the entry door.

Looking from the door towards the window wall and machine which is now packed up.
You would think with the nice windows the room with be light...NOT!
It is as if all the wood just sucks the light right up!!

I hope next Monday after this coming weekend it will be a different room all together!

See that horrid paneling??

I am here to tell ya it is full of nails ( to sink and fill)and some holes(to fill)!

Just prep work alone is daunting to say the least!

Anyway just picture it a pretty light shade of green, trim a nice country white.

Light and bright.

Room to move and only cluttered with lots of inspiration and creativity!!

I have waited along time for this makeover!!


Hope to make a run to PO Monday if no rain.

Mailing out several packages.

That will do it for me for swaps , gifts, etc. till after I get set backup.

I do have a sewing machine in dining room set up.

I hope to be sewing up some machine covers and accessories, new window treatments.


Yes DH spent time in kitchen again this weekend.

He made Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins Saturday.

I did only eat one…saving up for another one later today…;-)

Today he is doing BBQ Ribs and a romaine salad.
Love weekends with my own 'foodie"..ha!!


  1. I'm hoping you feel totally better need to get well so you can enjoy your bright, new sewing room when it's ready. (Will you then have to pack it all up when the kids and grandkids come to visit?)

  2. Sounds like you are slowly coming around. Yes, I have had panelling before and it is soooooooooo dark. I know you will be glad to get rid of it.

  3. I enjoy a good transformation and your sewing room will look so different after its makeover. While it's a lot of work to get there, it really is worth it. I hope you are feeling better - Lemon Poppy Seed muffins are definitely good for what ails you. BBQ ribs and salad could be too - especially when cooked by DH! Cheers..Ann :)

  4. Sounds like you feeling a bit better. All that work will be worth it when you done painting can't wait to see pictures of ther new room make over!

  5. Gosh! Are you spoiled... I wish my husband would bake me some goodies. lol

  6. I would feel badly for you, the task you have set for yourself, but I am getting ready to start a complete fruit basket upset in my studio, also. Even thinking of it makes me tired. Good luck with yours.

  7. Can't wait to see the after! I know what you mean, dark colors or paneling will suck the color out of a room easily!
