Hello ...

still here...
didn´t get lost in the sewingroom.. .
or even worse attacked by some awful dustbunnies!!! :o)

Im on the run!!!!
(but more of that later...)

Report from my sewingroom...
Got an idea just in the middle of all the cleaning up..
I needed a designwall !!!!

So DH went away and bought a styrofoamboard..
I put fabric ontop...glued..with hotglue...
Aooouuchhhh!!!! :o)

And wow.. It worked beautifully...:o)
But I had to reaarange everything in the room.. sigh...
so it became even more MESSY!!! lol...
TV...had to go...
but that was a good thing...
...fabric moved....
...empty cupboard moved...
isnt this a great cupboard??? :o)
...filled again on its new place...
Ohh.. I love this one.. its perfect!!! :o)
And this is a view of where I sit and try to be creative.....
...and this is what I see from my sewingarea now...
MY NEW DESIGN WALL!!!! great ideas!!!
and cheap ones...:o)

I said I ran away...
and so I did...
a fast decision...some telephone calls...
a bus trip...
not so fun trip..this was my view..for about 5 miles or so...
pretty or what...
NO... this is the backdoor of the bus..there was no place to sit in the bus.. and me and another girl had to sit at the stairs...
But I survived.. reached my destination...
To the home of John and Louise..
for a week of Sewing fun!!!
We celebrated their anniversary one night...
and I got to meet their lovely grandchild...
Olivia... really wanted to have some dessert...
she just sucked on to the foot of the glass..and didnt want to let go!!!
What a sweetie!! :o)
Over and out..and back with some sewing later..
See you !!!

  10. You have a fantastic sewing room, Stina. And I absolutely love the design wall construction. It is light weight enough to move around for its big size. I may copy yours:-) Well, the scenery of your trip truly changed for a much sweeter view...Olivia is a cutie! The desserts don't look too bad either. Yum!

  17. Yay! Love your new design wall and what is on it! That would definitely inspire me :o) And loving your lovely fabric stash/cabinet. Have a wonderful week with your friend! How fun is THAT? Lucky girl!

  18. Vilket underbart syrum du har, nu blir jag verkligen avundsjuk :0).
