Wow, it has been a busy week! My little girls have been at the beach on vacation...
...and while they've been away, I've been working on big projects!
First off, my husband decided that he could move his drums out into my sewing room so that I could move my stash and tabletop machine into the same rom that my long arm is set up in, so last Saturday this is what the rooms looked like...
My sewing studio:
|As you come into the room...|
|A better view of my worktable...|
|And the view from behind the sewing machine.|
And the drum set/quilting machine room:
|A long view of the room...|
|...and the drums!|
And here's what they look like now, after a whole lot of moving and organizing!
|My "new" sewing/cutting table,|
with lovely new level pedestals!
|The stash wall, after much needed organization!|
|Miss Jolene now stands over lots of scrap storage!|
No sense in all that wasted space!!
|And of course, the new drum room!|
But that's not all! On Tuesday, I hired my friend's teenage kids to come over and help me muck out the garage! (My gift to my husband for Father's Day...)
Honestly, I don't think I knew there were countertops in that shop area!! It's hard to tell from the photos, but there's lots more floor space available now. We took a full pickup truck load to the Goodwill, and another one to the dump. My hubby's going to move his Bowflex down to the garage so he'll have a whole little workout area there with that and the treadmill - and now there's room for it! The garage stays pretty cool most of the year, so it's a good place to work out.
And then yesterday I spent the day making baked goods for a local non-profit's bake sale - three dozen muffins, a three-layer cake, a derby pie, a loaf of Karen's awesome banana bread, and a loaf of peasant bread! Whew! But now it's done...
So that's what I'm whooping about this week - a very productive (if non-sewing) week!!
And now it's your turn!
What are you whooping about this week?
What's got you dancing the happy dance?
Share - we want to dance along!
The linky party will remain open
until Sunday night -
Be there or be square!
PS - I'd love it if you'd visit my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, too - the story of a great group quilt made by my church's quilt ministry!!
