With the holidays fast approaching, Greg has had little time to work on putting together the Ikea stuff for my sewing room. But he has had some time. I'm keeping the existing corner unit that was part of the closet organizer and we've added an Expedit bookcase with drawers and a couple of doors. This went together pretty easily and quickly.
Then we played around with room layouts. I want to have a stitching and knitting chair in the room. One day I plan to have a wall mounted TV in here and I'd like to knit or stitch and watch tv. My original plan wasn't working with the amount of counter space I wanted, so we regrouped and came up with this. The wooden table top to the left is going to be my cutting table.
This shows the corner where I hope my chair will go. The table frame represents where I'll have my ironing board when I need it. Otherwise it will be in the closet. I'm a slow sewer so it will probably be in the closet more often than not. If adding a chair doesn't work, I'll rearrange the counter space back to my original plan. Greg isn't going to put up the 2 wall cabinets and shelving until I get it all figured out which will be after I spend some time in the room.
Lots and lots and lots of assembly. Hopefully it will be done by the New Year and I'll be organized and sewing! It's a small space but I hope to use it well and get a lot of use out of it.In the meantime, it's the mad dash to the holiday finish line. Greg mailed packages yesterday and once I get an online purchase delivered (hopefully tomorrow!) we'll have more. Most of my Christmas cards have been sent. I still have loads of shopping to do for Greg , my sister and my parents. Tonight I purchased gifts for the people who work for me that are out of town. I'm going to finish wrapping them and hope to get them FedEx'd out tomorrow. I do have 3 more that are in the same location that I am to buy for but they will all be here next week. Menu planning - hasn't happened yet. And there is stuff all over the place. Whew! I'm tired already. I seem to be in this same position every year and somehow manage to get it done. Or at least I get enough of it done. I'm hoping that this year will be the same! Fingers crossed!
