New Space in Progress & Freckled Whimsy!

New Space in Progress & Freckled Whimsy!

Remember my sweet little sewing room?
This was my favorite space in the whole world.
Take note of the charm pack quilt along
This is an older picture,
cause that top is now sewn together.  LOL

 This is my sewing room now.


 Because I moved all the stuff 
from this space (below)
to my old sewing room,
cause I'm getting a new one!

 Don't let these picture fool you.
Our youngest son left for college last summer.
He's going 3 years all year round.
We had a talk because I wanted
to make sure he was OK with the switch.
(who am I kidding? I wanted to make sure I was OK)
It took me a long time for that conversation.
Cause he's my baby.
And I don't want to see him grow up.
You know what I mean.
I do, but I don't.
But I am so proud of him.

 So, my Mr. Neat Freak left me a mess when 
he moved out.
Yep...sure did.
I didn't touch anything until over the weekend.
And moved all that I could to my 'old' sewing room.
So I can work on my 'new' sewing room.
Now it's all cleaned out and ready
to become a new, creative space.
I could have had everything look all 
neat and tidy.
But then you wouldn't feel that sorry for me.
Because it wouldn't look like I had a lot
of work ahead of me.
I read the sign that's in my dining room
every time I walk by it.
Just to remind myself
I can handle this big task.
So I'll put my big girl panties on
and get my groove going.
Soon, I will have one 
kick-butt space.
And Justin will have a new room 
to snuggle in when he comes home 
to visit.
And I have to give a shout out to my
sweet mommy.
For the last 3 weeks, she has made
my family supper every Thursday.
And I'm not talking like a pizza
or something like that.
I'm talkin cheesey potatoes,
lasagna, meatballs,
round steak, potato salad,
green bean casserole
and dessert
It is has all been DELISH!
Thank you, mom!!!'ll have to check out my Midwest Hottie's blog, KarrieLyne at
She featured one of the ideas
I learned from our last quilting retreat!
Oh Yeah
(Picture the Kool-Aid guy here)
She's the bomb!!
And I also have to give kudos to 
one of my other favorite's,
from 100billionstars.
She's just amazing.

More to come as my room progresses.
So keep checking back!
I also have some new recipes to share.
I'll have those up this weekend.
Please come back for a visit soon!

Exciting!! All the effort it takes is going to be worth it. I'll be waiting for installments of this little adventure as it moves along.

Looks like you have your work cut out for you sister! How fun though, I love doing stuff like this. The only problem is it cuts into your sewing time, right? Have fun and keep us posted! Can't wait for dinner next week!

How exciting Cindy! And a nice transition I would think with your son moving out, it might make it a little easier.
