in the new workroom







We have been in this new house just over three months now--we have accomplished a lot, but there is still so much more to be done.  We still need to finish the kitchen {the soapstone sink and counters should be installed soon!}, I need to finish painting the kitchen cabinets, all the trim in the house needs to be installed and painted, and the powder room needs its sink installed.  Meanwhile something needs to be done with the yard, and I am so hoping to get the frames in place for our raised beds which moved with us--I cannot wait to get gardening again!  Last week we planted out 30 trees and 30 shrubs around the property.  They are very small, but I am hoping they will grow quickly.
My workroom is finally organized, for the most part.  I could barely walk through due to all the stuff that would end up here as we worked on other rooms.  Now I can sew.  And, my good husband saw an ad for a vintage Singer 201 and bought it for me.  My old 101-4 was running very sluggish, and so the 201 is handling the leather sewing so much better.  I have been working on some bags for a special commission and hope later this summer to actually get some made for the shop
I am dreaming of making another quilt, whenever I can squeeze it in. I found some quilting books at the library sale and am thinking maybe I will try the flying geese pattern...

  10. So much like our home at the moment. Getting the architraves and skirtings on becomes an exciting highlight in the month! I fully understand your dilemma. So much to do but the creative urges are starting to call a little more insistently. Here's to the light at the end of the tunnel

  21. Debbie ~ It is so nice to see some of the items from the old house being used in the new house. I've never left a comment before (at least I dont think I have), but I have been a reader/follower of your blog for many, many years. Thank you for sharing.
