We have dressed the sewing room up a bit so it is more comfortable and inviting not just for me, but for any and all visitors.   Comfy means I will spend more time out there of course and be more productive.   And inviting means I may have a visit or two from a friend or neighbor or even my DH.  The wall decals were an idea which are sort of fun, no?   Behind the quilt frame is my first quilt.  It’s a wall hanging with a John Deere theme.  I made it for my husband who has allowed me to place it here until I have another to display.  Isn’t he the best?

We have a radio which will provide a bit of entertainment and will allow me to pass the time better.  After working in a noisy open office with phones ringing and conversations everywhere it can be hard to work in the quiet of a small farm.   But I promise not to blare it so loud as to annoy a neighbor.  It would have to be really loud to do that!

Anyway, here are pictures for your enjoyment.  You’ll note that we have a nice platform rocker for you to enjoy while you visit and chat as I sew.  I’ll have to add a few magazines and books for perusing.  The pot belly stove is not a working stove but will be a nice place for my hot iron to rest as it cools after use (before it is carefully put away, of course).

I am still working on how to use the shelves so please ignore my disorder.   I’m not a very organized person to begin with so this is going to be a challenge.  Perhaps I can find cloth baskets to put current projects in on the shelves.  I think they can live on the bottom two shelves and books etc on the top one.  The books will have to share the space with the iron since it is too big to store in the ironing board cabinet.  Oh my I didn’t get a picture of that. . . . oh well another day perhaps.

Well I hope you like our improvement.  It took quite a while but I think it’s finally done.  With one or two little additions. . . maybe a very small refrigerator and a small cozy cushion for Thomas.  I saw a really cute idea for one I can make out of towels and batting!

I also believe that this poor door needs some attention.  Perhaps I can paint it and use it as a bulletin board!  It’s not big enough to be a design board but it would do in a pinch for ideas and color auditions. . . don’t you think? 

Stop by and see  us as we sew off into the sunset!
