Now I just have to find the energy to manhandle it under the sewing machine!
Maybe in a few days. I'm more than a little distracted by the thought of taking over the little bedroom. As it turns out, DH is more willing to let me have it than I expected. We may even be moving his things out this weekend!
I have already changed my mind about how I'm going to use the room. It occurred to me that it might be wiser to keep all the sewing activities together in one place. My projects tend to overlap in terms of techniques and materials. I don't want to have half of my stash in one room and the rest in another. Instead I think I'll move my computer into the little room, along with a selection of reference books and fiction. I'll turn it into more of a library than a studio annex.
I'd like it to have the feel of a sitting room, feminine and cozy. It would be wonderful to be able to paint the walls a color but I don't know that we'll take the time to do that. (I would like to try out a no-VOC paint to see whether I can tolerate it or not. I know regular paints are out of the question.) I'm anxious to have a dedicated spot for beading. If I can find something to put the computer monitor on in the little room I can use the desk it sits on now for my beading station. The trick will be in figuring out what furniture to use where, and to keep from over-filling the room. Dreams are one thing, reality tends to be something else altogether. ;- )
