I spent the entire day weeding and cutting back things in my front yard today. It was pretty hot out and by the end of the day, I was pooped, but the yard looks neat and tidy again. I needed to get it done while it was somewhat cool.
So, here it is Tea Time Thursday. I was going to give you a look at my cottage, but it's still not quite done. I am getting close! It was fun to actually use my sewing machine to make my curtain valance. I am going to really like having a place to sew.
Some of you know that I'm decorating my studio with Mary Engelbreit things that I have been collecting for some time now. Here's my teacup for today....it says "Everyone Needs Their Own Spot" and has adorable little dogs running around the saucer. How appropriate....as my cottage certainly will be my SPOT!
I promised some friends that I would show my sewing cabinet. One of the things that was important to me in my studio was to have a lot of space. I decided to get this great sewing cabinet that can open up to provide me with great work space when I'm sewing. Here it is all closed up.
I just opened it up to show the inside and the storage spaces. The machine goes down for storage. I'm still waiting for the acetate cut out that will allow me to have my machine flush with the table. It had to be special ordered.
This is the regular fold out...space on the left and right hand side. Don't you like my RED work chair? I love it!
Then if you need more space, the back will open up too for a very large work space. Sometime you need that when you're working on a quilt.
You can see my cutting table in the back. It folds up too. I just wanted lots of flexibility.
It's such a happy room that just makes me smile every time I walk in the door!
