Gradually, I’ve been cleaning out boxes and putting things into the new cabinets that occupy what used to be 2 single closets.
There is space for my monitor and a sewing machine on the counter. I really love the pegboard that I picked up from IKEA. There are other pieces available that I could add to it.
As you may notice, I’m working on the Cascade baby quilt.
In the rare case that I would do night time sewing there is LED strip lighting to go under the cabinet. It will be brighter in the daytime when the other window goes in.
The machine that I use for my fiber art is still in the window facing the garden.
The in wall ironing board was a bit pricey but so worth the space gained.
This afternoon, cup of tea in hand and window cracked open to the sound of rain, I looked around the room and teared up with gratitude and happiness. It is a dream space.
For now, I think I’ll keep the design wall portable. There is space for the crib/juvenile bed for our grandson if I move out the glider rocker.
At lunch today with my tea I pulled out my sketchbook, compass and retractor to experiment with making my own mandalas, a definite sign that my energy is returning.
It definitely contributed to a sense of calm that I haven’t had in a while.
