So, not much more progress on the sewing room - the electrician has come for the first fix and we pick up the rest of the timber needed tomorrow.
I have painted a cabinet that will hold a tv though - I mostly followed this tutorial I did have a lot of trouble with the paint sticking the drawers shut though, and if I did it again after I put the masking tape on I would cut around the drawers with a stanley knife and lift them out and paint them seperately. But it still looks pretty cool :D
And since I can't sew all I've done is buy.....
My first fabric.com order - I found the fabric a bit thinner than I expected, but it has a beautiful sheen to it and I love the fact I got 100% silk for $4 a meter!!
I've been reading up all my blogs and fell in love with Oh, Fransson! and have planned a couple of quilts - she makes it look so easy and I love the bright modern designs. So I have a few orders coming from my favourite etsy seller LilyBellaFabrics, like these Heather Bailey fabrics which will make a quilt for my sewing room;
Joel Dewberry fabrics for my bedroom
and some Robert Kauffman fabrics that will make a quilt for my son;
I'm also waiting on a couple of sewing pattern orders and a walking foot for when I make some chanel style jackets and have to quilt the lining....Yikes, I neeed my sewing machine and room back!
