A Work in Progress
We are all moved and pretty much unpacked, but things are still a work in progress here. The biggest thing at the moment is that we are still without internet! Does anyone remember life about 15 years ago when that wouldn't have mattered?! Now, I'm just going mad! I feel so out of touch with the world. I haven't been checking blogs or reading the news...I feel like I don't know what's going on. Hopefully it will be sorted out in the next few days. Right now I've got the laptop tethered to hubby's phone so I can quickly write up this post.
Now onto more exciting news...I'm going to have an actual craft room! The pic above is how it looks at the moment, but hubby is on the case to make it pretty! The 2 storage cubes will be the sides of a cutting table/work space. No more taking over the dining table. Since we moved, we've actually been eating at the dining table which is a nice change to the past 2 years. Hubby is pretty happy about it as he's never been a fan of eating on the couch. The table on the right is for my machines. I'd like a table that isn't so deep, as most of the space behind the machine is wasted, but that's not a priority just now. I just managed to squeeze all my fabric into the chest of drawers! A paint job for the drawers is also on the list.
The light in the room is great! The roof is offset and has windows along it, so the light is just everywhere. Even on a fairly dark day it is bright. It's such a change from the old place. I can't wait to do some sewing without having to put every light on!
Hopefully I'll have some pretty, Apartment Therapy worthy before and after photos to come soon!
