Moving Things Around...


Did I sew all day? No... Did I read all day? No... Did I swim? Again, NO!

I got up yesterday morning and felt like the walls of my sewing room were closing in on me. I can clean and put things away and reorganize all day long, BUT I knew there was simply too much stuff in there. Something needed to give. Something needed to go.

The photo is my new and improved and streamlined sewing room. I can breathe!

Can you tell what's missing? Cooper's crate! The table OVER Cooper's crate! The Accuquilt!

Cooper's crate is HUGE and took up lots of cubic feet. I decided the Accuquilt could live in the laundry room when not in use. It can come out to play anytime I need it. I don't use it to cut fabric every single day. I don't even use it every week. So this makes sense.

Cooper has matured so much and though I can't trust him completely (he turned the oven on a couple of nights ago - 350 degrees, to be exact), I hope he can learn to sleep on his soft bed without his crate.  I'm happy to report that the first night went so well!

This was a big upgrade for Cooper - he's never had a soft bed in his crate because he always chewed it. But he doesn't destroy his soft bed if it's NOT in a crate. He slept great on his soft bed and did not bother anything in my sewing room! This will provide extra incentive for me to alway put things away in there before he goes to bed at night.

All this rearranging took All. Day. Long. All day. I plan on making it feel more personal by hanging some quilts. So that was my day. I did listen to a book while I worked, so that's good anyway. And I'm almost finished with my little caddy - a few more screws and I'll be done with that.

Let's have a TV update. I recently watched the documentary series, The Keeper, on Netflix. Very interesting. And we also recently finished Lark Rise to Candleford - a show on Amazon set in the late 19th century in the countryside of England. Really enjoyed this one, too! We need to find another longterm series to watch.

Have a wonderful day!

  2. WOW, that looks great! I started cleaning out my little room today, too! My incentive, my grandsons will need a place to sleep when they come in 2 weeks. Made a sizable dent, but have a ways to go before I can pull out the trundle bed.

  4. How open the area looks...we have two crates in our bedroom under the window, which is out of the way...but the dogs do have a soft bed which is ON my sewing table next to my sewing machine! HA Keeping items to a minimum is the way to go isn't it! Nicely done!

  5. Remaking space does take a lot of time! That may be why I'm still dithering. =) Your space looks welcoming. Congratulations on your dog's maturation.
