For a few years now I've been thinking of painting my sewing room...yes, years, I know...terrible. But the reason I couldn't start was that I couldn't decide on a color. Because I wanted the perfect color. And so finally I decided to shamelessly copy Camille and use the paint she used for her sewing room (Waterscape by Sherwinn Williams). I have to say it was worth the wait--I'm absolutely in love with this color. And while I'm nowhere near finished with this room, at least I can sew while I'm figuring out what to put where. I'm going to move things around and re-organize everything; nothing decorative is going back in without passing the "do I love it" test, and no fabric goes back without being organized. With so many decisions to make, I did find one decision easy. The one thing I knew for sure the second the paint dried on this corner of the room was that my Spools quilt would hang right where it is. I'll show some after pictures...hopefully soon...because that will mean that all the fabric currently residing on our dining room table has made its way back into the sewing room. And that will be a good thing because I've already had a few friends come over and look a little shocked at the amount of fabric on the table. But they don't quilt, so it's okay!
More than once today I've wondered what I was thinking when I decided to paint my sewing room. It's turned into a much bigger project than I anticipated. Anyway, if you've followed along this far, I do have a new quilt to share...
My sister-in-law has this quilt hanging in her sewing room. It's adorable...I wish the picture did it justice (the only one I took was on my phone). The applique' and the quilting on this wall hanging is absolutely beautiful. And this really kind of sums it all up, too...we quilters are pretty obsessed sometimes about this wonderful hobby we have. But isn't that a wonderful thing?!
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
