The Continental Avenue Bridge along the Trinity River Corridor provides a great view of downtown Dallas and a closeup of the new Margaret a Hunt Hill Bridge.
The whole day was fast and furious but I am glad we got to take her a few more places.
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.
