that I almost forgot how to do a post. Hope everyone out there in bloggy land is doing OK. I've been trying to keep up with you all and see what's new in your world and being totally inspired and jealous of all of your creations and projects. I had to take a quilt book to bed to read the other night just because I miss my needle and thread so much and needed some kind of sewing fix. But when your room looks like this
and your fabric closet looks like this (you can't believe all of the stuff I've already packed and hauled to the lake - it's a sin I tell ya, LOL)
there's just no way I can go in there and mess it up. The house is officially on the market and so picking up for unexpected company is a daily chore now and making a mess is a big NO NO. Sooo I wait and look forward to making a wonderful creative mess in this area - the new sewing spot
I love love love the new cabinets in my sewing room and look forward to filling them up with all of my "stuff". My new sewing table will go in front of those cabinets , you can see on the floor in front there is a piece of plywood and under that is the in-floor outlets for hooking up the sewing machine and lights. It's pure joy for me when I walk into that room and boy do I look forward to spending lots of time in there enjoying the room and the view of the lake. Off to the side is a really big walk-in closet that will hold more sewing "stuff" like fabric and WOOL - lots of WOOL, LOL. Once the shelves are in there I'll share a pic.
The house has really started to take on it's transformation and look in the last 2 weeks. The "wrapping" is off the porch now and even tho the house isn't totally sided or painted yet you can get an idea of what the finished house will look like.
the house will be painted the red to match the garage once spring has arrived. Son#2 will be in charge of all the landscaping and the patio off the back of the house. His ideas and what he's talking about doing sound awesome. It will be wonderful to have his touch on the house for years to come.
I'm so happy with how everything is coming together and to see our dream become a reality is a real blessing. So let's take a quick tour of some of the changes - some of these pictures are a little hard to see because of to much or not enough light - sorry.
Part of Mr. Farmhouses office
the bathroom for the kids - the cabinet is black
the bookcases around the fireplace - red, yummmmm - the mantle around the fireplace will also be red
the laundry room - also all red cabinets but it's really hard to see, but I think doing laundry might be OK in that room, LOL
Mr. Farmhouse's room for all of his hunting/fishing stuff and just plain everyday stuff - the wall with nothing on it will hold a long hanging rack for jackets and such
and my wonderful kitchen - my goodness I'm in love with this room - it's turning out exactly like I had hoped - think the red island is a nice pop of color - it's a little hard to see
So that's it for my life right now. Our move in date is 1 month from today - it's so hard to believe that what's been in planning stages for close to 2 years is getting close to the finish line - I think we're both ready :)
Until Next Time
