A work in progress
No I have not forgotten you, faithful reader. I have been up to my neck in turning a former teenage refuge into my new sewing room. Here is just a tiny taste of what I hope is finished SOON. Above is the room as my youngest child left it. Tone on tone dark pink walls. Painted furniture that I painted years ago. And this picture does not do the nastiness of this carpet justice. It makes you wonder just how many colors of nail polish there are. And how many mortgage payments could have been made with the amount of it in the carpet. How do you sling hot lime green nail polish UNDER the bed? Far into the corner? Inquiring minds wonder.
This is when the project FEELS like it is moments from being done. Energy is high and you are anxious to see the end result.
So close yet so far away. Here is a peek. Laminate floors, new baseboards and the walls a cool, calm, seaglass blue. In the corner is Gertrude waiting for the room to be complete. I will take more pictures after it is all put together.
I need this room done, NOW! I have sewing to do. My sewing machines are sitting in the floor right now. I have to get back to it. Later, faithful reader.
