Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.
Thanksgiving break has been productive already. This is what I spent the day putting together yesterday. An island in the sewing room. I had to take a picture because this won't last long once I really start working. The counter & storage space is approachable from all four sides (that is if there is not something on the floor).
I have had this idea ever since I saw it on a blog years ago. I wish Ihad room to make a giant island with multiple 3x3 cube units but I do not have the space. I was lucky to get this in the room-- room is only 10x10. This was made with three 3x2 cube units (I have room for fourth unit but wasn't sure I wanted cube shelves so I left it open in the back for now. The top is 24x48 plywood I covered with batting and then uphostered with fabric.
The triple drawer units I have had for years, once upon a time they held the overflow of napkin rings and flatware (early 2000's) then they held stamp sets and now they are in here. I have twelve so this is a good home for some. I always struggle with a good place to put hoops for the emroidery machines so the side panel of the cube units works well, i just used 3m command hooks. The right side of the top has an ironing pad, I don't have enough room for a full size ironing board so this works since most of the pieces I iron are small anyway. I am so thrilled about this project getting done.
Sewing room progress 5 months in the making. #sewingroom #sewingstudio #craftroom
All in a days work.... Spent the morning at Sonntag Elem with the North Texas Municipal Water District WATERIQ Water4Otter team. This is a new program focused on teaching grade school kids about saving water at home. The lake in our area is less that 47% full so the entire region is focused on water conservation.
Spending Labor Day "laboring" in my relocated sewing room. This is the first corner set up in my new space. One corner done, rest of room to go. I think my stuff multiplied when we swapped and consolidated rooms. (This room was Micaela's baby room once upon a time).
