Design Room Monday....

My design wall looks just like it did last week. No change. My mojo was gone this week, but it looks better for this week.

Why, you ask?

Because I found my graph paper....

Since we didn't have internet yesterday morning (because DH decided to push the "reset" button....never..ever...push the reset button..) I dragged out my graph paper and started with my paper and ruler.

This is what I drew....



I made templates for my sewing table, banquet table, ironing table and cutting table. Then I played around until I found a good arrangement.

After asking DH and the Rock Star to help me move furniture, this is what it looks like now.



I have so much more room to move around and I can finally get to both sides of my cutting table. I had to move a few hanging things, such as the ruler rack and such, but I love the new look. I have a couple of quilts to bind for quilt guild and I need to put the finishing touches on my Christmas in July swap package. Then I will start on another secret project or two.
Doesn't it look nice?


Woops!!! I need to find some place for this stuff...



We had that bad storm last night and here is what the house next door looks like. The house is under construction and this siding was stuff that was stacked up ready to be put on the house. Last night it was everywhere. This photo shows it after it was cleaned up. See the house down the street with the red car in the driveway? That's the one that got the garage door sucked in.



And my neighbors tree. Missed his kids tree house by mere inches...


DH is off to Michigan for three days and there is nothing on my calendar until Thursday, so I will be in the sewing room if anyone needs me...

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

The new arrangement in your sewing room looks great. And don't worry about your design wall not changing. Mine didn't and I was sewing all last week, just not on what was on the wall. lol
