My Sunday Stitchy Update 04/16/17

Evening People and Happy Easter!!

I would like to introduce you to our sewing space that my daughter is setting up for us!  As many of you know we just moved into this home about 8 months ago and Tia (my daughter) has christened this as "Our Craft Room"! It is a work in progress because it needed lots of work done to it, but in the meantime we will be using it. First up, she ripped up the carpeting in there because it was old GROSS! She had no idea what she would find under there but she was anxious to get rid of it. It wasn't to bad, there are old ceramic tiles there and a few turned out to be cracked and they are not level with the tiles in the other rooms that connect to this room. Also you will notice the glue on the floor! She tried to get it off but looks like that will take some time! Eventually the tile will be replaced/covered but that is further down the road. I am sure there will be much more to come about this wonderful room!

In the meantime she inherited this desk from the previous resident of her office and decided to keep it. She painted it very colorfully for our room. I just LOVE how it turned out!!  She also painted and recovered an orange chair for the desk and she has two other chairs that need sanding and painting which I think will be painted in the green color.

Guess this means I will have to get those curtains my son is waiting for done!  LOL
My New Sewing Space!

Wow that looks so cool! Clever daughter. I love the colours she painted the desk too and an orange chair will be perfect for this setup. Awesome start to your craft room. Lovely progress on your stitching too.
