Now it's a new year! God was/is SO good during all the extreme challenges of last year, that I am nothing but joyful and thankful and hopeful for whatever this year brings! Because He lives, I have no fear.
So! Moving on! I want to blog! For so many reasons; but I think most of them creative.
Not so much travel right now--no international flights for over a year. Yikes.
But lots of sewing. Sewing for love. Sewing for joy. Sewing for sanity, at times.
So, here we go! I want to start with my updated sewing space! I'm still in the loft and my former space was great, but Randy insisted that I needed more storage. What sewer doesn't??? What a guy.
We found these amazing solid-wood desks at Goodwill--$55 for both pieces. Tons of storage.
The antique dresser was a $25 Goodwill find as many years ago. Cream paint and contact paper. Randy refinished it and it served as kitchen storage in an open pantry. Then it lived in a guest room holding extra bedding. Now it is re-purposed as sewing storage and cutting table and gift wrapping station. Perfect height.
And my lights! A hand-crafted birthday gift from Randy. He's quite taken with all things Steam Punk these days. It appeals to the technical side of him. He spray painted, assembled and everything.
They provide superb lighting directly to the cutting area.
A few other crazy thoughtful gifts Randy gave me for Christmas:
|From Home Depot--Who knew?|
That's very much enough for now.
