Thanks for all the comments. I love the color - it is relaxing to sew in there.

Linda -- I think fixing up that room and sewing in it will give you much pleasure. It looks like a great work space.

What I've been doing is finally working in my sewing rooms - first getting it fairly organized, and now actually sewing for a change. Yee haw!
Here are pictures of my newly painted and organized sewing rooms in our new-to-us house:
1 - View from door showing (L to R) cutting table, fabric/book cubes, more fabric cubes, sewing area.
2 - View from window to sewing area, unfinished quilt hanger, and area where ironing board will be.
3 - one side of quilting/crafting storage room.
4 - Other side of quilting crafting room.
If it doesn't show, in both rooms the color is a light blue (teal?) called Swimming from Sherwin Williams. In the quilting room there was a lower textured area which we painted white. The wood wall was left from the original area.




I think I will enjoy working in this area. What do you think?

One for my friends birthday and one for me :)

A reversible apron:

Grace, when I taught preschool, we would use toilet paper rolls and turn them into fireworks in July and also cut them down the sides a couple times and bend the edges, dip them in paint and stamp them on a paper. It made a firework design. I loved using toilet paper rolls for crafts.
I have a pillow like that. Itís so wonderful to use after a long day. Enjoy some relaxation.

I just made a new Lavender neck pillow...

I use a combo of median grain rice and my home grown lavender...
Oh it smells so lovely...

Working on a crochet baby blanket. Doing the Ripple stitch. Thought I'd use up some of my yarn stash.

Vanessa, what a great idea..
When I taught Pre-school.. one of the "Spring Themed" projects I did with the children,,, we painter TP rolls black,, and then I stapled 2 rolls together,, and added string on each side (like a lanyard).. then we would go outside and use our 'Binoculars" to look for birds and butterflies, etc.. the kiddos loved it....
SO your trinket box brings back old wonderful memories....
TP rolls are such great fun for crafting.

Also you can make a thin 'paste' with flour and water, and 'paste' on tissue paper or (veggi dye print) newspaper to one end,, fill with potting soil and use the tubes for seedling starters.

Gotta luv TP rolls!

These are my new recycling projects. Using toilet tissue rolls and the priority envelope, I make trinket boxes and lids covered with decorative paper. More later when they are done

Natalie, thatís a good idea. And then even in many years from now our families will hand those projects down and tell the story of what happened to our world when it was made. Could be a way to tell about history, just like in the past.

That embroidery sampler is beautiful and vibrant! Thank you, Grace, Judith and Krista for your kind comments. I am making a bedspread for a California king bed that will have 80 squares - 10 x 8.
Everyone's work here is eye-candy and so inspiring. Thank you for sharing! This is such a bizarre time in history, but we will make it through. Also, think of all the beauty we will have created! We should date everything so that in decades from now we remember.
Be well!

Keep shining!
Natalie

Thank you so much Marie, for the embroidery sampler. It is so intricate! I plan to frame it! This brings up memories of Grandma Vitums teaching us needlework.

Everything is beautiful. So many ideas! The spoon is really nice. I'd be cutting myself for sure. Granny squares are addictive. Leaving the rocks is a good idea. I heard it before. I can't paint but I have stones that I wrote inspirational words on. I took a basket to the chemo center. Peace, Joy, Love, Blessed, Healed and other encouraging words. Makes me want to do that again!
One day I will get a Dulcimer and learn! I'll check YouTube out for the time being!

Be Blessed and Be a Blessing,

It's been a few days since I visited. This virtual space is like walking through an art gallery! Everything is beautiful beyond words. My comfort is crochet. It's been very rainy, and living in a world that feels like the Twilight Zone calls for comfort. This is a project I started over a year ago and set aside. Granny squares are an easy, meditative pattern. Now it's time to work on it once again. Many blessings to all of you! Be well!
