I sewed something!
|This is my new exercise T shirt.|
Sewing for the first time in months wasn't the only bright spot of my day. I went for a nice long walk for the first time since before Christmas when I fell and sprained my knee. My knee is finally feeling right again.
Getting organized in our new place has been so much slower than I would like. The main reason is because we really downsized and it has been tricky to find room for my sewing stuff.
I love to sew. And I know you do, too. But when we shopped for a new home, I didn't make a sewing room a very high priority. It was way more important to find the right location, with the right amenities and whatever we got, I knew I'd make it work. As it turns out, my sewing is now split into two spaces.
In the master bedroom, there is a sitting area, and I have a wall of storage:
|It's almost organized, almost. This is the IKEA Besta system and I am waiting for drawers to come in. I will add several drawers and doors. When it is finished, storage will be completely concealed.|
Still to do:
- Buy and hang at least one full length mirror. I can't sew anything tricky until I can see myself in a mirror!
- Hang the super-bright full spectrum fluorescent lights I brought from the old place. They aren't pretty but I don't care - I need bright light. Call an electrician.
- Buy a smaller cutting mat. My old one is too big and does not fit.
- Install drawers and doors on the Wall of Storage.
I think that's it.
Now that I can walk normally, everything is going to feel easier.
I think I will find an electrician and call tomorrow.
Yep. I am tired of being in limbo!
