Moving Excitement!

As I think I mentioned before, at some point we are moving.  We’re doing all sorts of decluttering and packing up right now to get our house ready to go on the market, and we’re hunting down houses like crazy.  This is nothing new to us; we’ve lived in 3 states and countless apartments, and now our house, in our 8 years together.  We know how to move.

However, this time feels different.  I am excited about the prospect of buying what could possibly be our last home.  I’m excited about taking another step up in our lives, setting up our house with more than 1,000 square feet to work with, not being on top of our neighbors, having a place for little baby Dax when he (or she! who knows!) decides to come along in the future.  If I’m just being completely honest here, I’m probably most excited about setting up my sewing room.

My sewing room now is our spare bedroom.  There is a full sized bed in there and a dresser, which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but they are the bane of my existence.  Sure, the bed is great for taking a break from sewing and perusing through Pinterest or checking Twitter (which I’m terrible at doing, by the way.  #1 worst tweeter, right here.  I mostly just retweet.)  Besides that, my sewing room doesn’t have a ceiling light, and there isn’t much in the way of natural light except during a few hours in the morning.  I have a lot of lamps, which actually make it hard to tell what time it is, and then you end up staying up until 11pm on a Wednesday working on a bag, and then you’re so wired when it’s done you decide it’s a good idea to watch an episode of Dexter.  Sure you finished it, and Dexter is never a bad idea, but all Thursday you’re barely awake.  I haven’t even gotten to the best part; the whole room is yellow.  I mean, Big bird would be invisible in this room.  YELLOW.  When we moved in the entire house was yellow, and when were painting and got to that room we just said “let’s leave it that way just as a reminder.”  So low light + yellow walls = everything in there looks odd and I have to find another room to take pictures of things.  Even with my little lightbox things have a yellow tinge.


So I’ve been working on some sketches of how I want my sewing room laid out.  I know once I get in there it’ll change about 100 times and I’ll keep moving things around, but I want to get an idea of how I’d like to imagine it anyhow.  It’s a little difficult since we haven’t really found “the one” house and I can’t be 100% about dimensions, doors, windows, etc.


Anyhow!  I hope everyone’s had a nice week!  I know I’m looking forward to the weekend!

Until next time!  Happy sewing!

  1. I hope where ever you move you find a lovely home with plenty of room to set up your sewing space. I love having a design wall, which in my case is nothing more than a queen size flannel sheet from Big Lots (super discount store) pinned to the wall with push pins. When I am putting things on the design wall I often use sewing pins, but don’t push them into the wall, just pin the piece to the sheet. What color would you choose for a sewing room?? That would be my challenge. (I love all things yellow, and did not realize it would affect your colors for photography.)

Tell me what you think!
