Painting and Sewing

Went to oldest daughter's home yesterday. I helped her paint a bedroom, a bathroom and the basement family room (also known as the man cave!). My hubby, son-in-law to be and his dad put down laminate floor in the great room. The house is looking fantastic and they are so proud, as they should be. We didn't get home until after 11, boy was I tired.

But I digress, here is how the day started.....

Well, I got up at 4 a.m. on Saturday, called tech support for my new DSL, got right through. Then started working on this dress from BWOF 2/2009. We left for her house at 8:30 so I got quite a bit done.

I worked a bit more this morning and it is looking pretty darn good. I need to attach the collar and do the sleeves. Then make a run for buttons.

Well, with all my daughter's painting and sprucing up, not too mention the wedding, hubby and I started working on the unfinished basement. That is the laundry room and my sewing room. I just finished painting the laundry part, boy does it look better. Hubby is going to build in our front load washer/dryer, I will post pictures. Tomorrow I am going to clean out the sewing room part and paint those walls. It might take me a long time to clear out my sewing area!!!


  1. You are one busy lady! You have a lot on your plate. After the wedding, maybe you'll crash for a while?

    Cleaning out a sewing room may seem daunting, but you'll enjoy putting everything back, sorting and organizing as you go. Never know what forgotten treasures you'll find!

  2. I look forward to seeing the finished product of this dress. I love this look.

  3. I have that BWOF dress on my docket, so I'll be eager to see how it turns out. Hope you love it.

  4. I love that dress, looking forward to your version. Good luck with all the non sewing activities too.

  5. I look forward to seeing how this turns out!

  6. Looking forward to seeing your spruced up sewing room! Sounds like you kept yourself pretty busy. :)

    Looks great! I need to do that (as well as multiple other things) with my thread. I too LOVE Heather Bailey's room. I'd love to go have a live look, which (in theory at least) would be doable since she lives in my area.
