Well... today I'm going to make a start on the sewing room boxes. I did contemplate unpacking a few last night after dinner, but I just couldn't drag me sorry butt off me chair!
So... there's about 13 boxes and a few other smaller containers full of sewing stuff, and by the look of it, toys and odds 'n' ends.
ABOVE: Silly Tallulah all alert and interested... by a parrot on the TV last night. She's so funny.
We have Amanda, Andrew and kids coming for dinner tonight, so I better remember to get food out of the freezer.
10.17 am: ONE.... BOX..... DONE. Phew!
11.00 am: THREE... yes... THREE DONE NOW.
12.29 PM: And I have lost count. Maybe 5? 6?
Whatever number it is... I am slowly getting there!
I've stopped for a lunch break.
ABOVE: It looked so TIDY before I started on the boxes. But ... ya have to make a mess in order to get it all sorted.
AND... 8 hours later... It's done!
ABOVE: All my fabric is found and put away again. I've not had a chance to drool.... yet. I'm too busy... and tired.
ABOVE: There's still a bit to do to make it tickety boo... but it's close to being totally finished.
THIS is why it's not quite finished:
ABOVE: Ummm... Steve? Stew? Anyone? I need more shelves!
On a whole, I'm cuffed with my new sewing room. It is all I have ever dreamed of having. And I can sit and watch what's going on outside while I sew. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT.
And now... I have to turn around and get dinner ready. *sigh* It's the last thing I feel like doing... but as we have visitors for dinner, I better get a move on.
9.43 pm: well dinner went well... the family liked my pie and veges. The grandkids had fun with all the toys in the toybox, lots of happy noise. They have gone home now and the house is quiet again.
Time to relax and head off to bed in an hour or so.
