The night I saw this on Trevlyn's blog, within 5 minutes I had my scraps of fat quarters I have been collecting for "quilts" or what not, all over the floor and was figuring this out. It is not nearly as cute as Trev's, of course, and no birdies or bow, and it has got a little droopy from the smog and fog outside, but I did hang it on my front door and I quite like it (and have received a few compliments!). Thanks Trev!This desperately needs to be ironed and different ribbon color put on, but it won't happen. I sewed the pleat and edges in this project probably a year ago and its been bundled up in the basement ever since Thursday when I just took it out, finished it and slopped it up there. This is my kitchen sink window.
The new furniture arrangement. We put the dining room table in the corner (covered by the blue bloth in the top corner) and my favorite kitchen bench facing the window (I love seeing Holden sitting here looking out the window in the morning). We actually bought new slipcovers this week, but they are still in my trunk! The balloons are leftover from a Wednesday night baby shower.
Katie was over this afternoon and we went to town on my crazy basement room. I have a dream, and a vision, and a sketch of how I envision my craft/laundry/storage room (someday) but today I love just having lots of junk finally thrown out and being able to walk in here! The stuff in the middle is just laundry to be done, so theoretically will be clear, and I will start searching for a work table for folding and baskets for the huge center floor now available. Thanks Katie, I never knew where to start (it was seriously awful!).
The other side looks kind of cluttery, and I still have to go through the wire shelves (almost done Kate!), but the boxes of holiday, tools and paint, office stuff, and some clothes and stacked only one box deep and flush against the wall. But if you have ever had a glimpse of the basement, seriously, there is a totally empty (except for the laundry in the middle) area about 7 feet by 10 feet. I think I am going to move the fridge to the right of the dryer and create an office space where the fridge is (if you have seen to the left side of this shot, you may know what I am talking about). A utility sink under the window and the aforementioned craft/laundry table with baskets and possibly some shelves over the washer and dryer (I haven't figured it out with all the pipes and wires) and it will be platinum.
