You know what they say about the best laid plans, that was how my week went. I think I have the after Christmas shut down, I just need to rest a bit and gather my senses and then I can tackle things again.
I had planned on posting a freebie but the pieces are unfinished. I took my machine in and I cannot get my little one to work right, it keeps nesting on me, so I am hoping I can get it figured out and have the pieces ready for Monday's posts.
Today I also wanted to ask a question. I ordered a rug and it came in today. I got it from Overstock and wondering how others like buying from them, this is my first experience. I love the rug, much nicer than I expected and nothing wrong with it but.. It smells musty. It came wrapped in a ton of plastic wrapping with the original wrapping and I think it has been sitting this way in a warehouse for a while, so moisture probably got into it. It this normal for shipped rugs? I usually get them at the store, but needed a longer one for my hallway. I wanted to get other's opinions before I order any rugs online, again.
One of the things I wanted to do was to redo my sewing room. I moved everything around and all I did was make more of a mess, it was better the way it was, lol. Now I need to rethink it and clean up the mess I made. I am decluttering and putting things in boxes that I don't use as much so I have more room to work and less cutter on the tables.
This is my disaster today. I used my phone so I could use the panorama so the room looks distorted.
I did find a nice table for my beach room. I was going to redo one of mine, but I decided to keep that one for wood work and get a smaller one to use as a desk for painting smaller items or boxes. Now I need to find a chair to go with it. I think a thrift store should have something I can use for it, or maybe a simple, small beach bench style.
And here is a panorama of the room, it is a work in progress. I plan on painting a scene on the far wall and I still have a wall that you cannot see. I am thinking I might just put my new quilting machine in this room, then I can keep my sewing room less cluttered. I am still looking for the perfect rug. I want it to fit the beach theme but by colors or something fun and artsy to put a pop of color in. It will be fun making some small art quilts to add to the walls.
This looks off since I panned around the room on three sides, and the walls look spotty, but that is because the nautical lamp throws off shadows with the cut glass.
I hope everyone has a nice weekend, rain here and Nick is coming to hang out with me tomorrow. Hopefully I will have something fun you can make, ready for my Monday post.
