I mentioned here (#26) that S and I went to Ikea on Saturday...
Here's some of what I'm up to.
Jay needed a dresser. I planned on building it for him. That is quite difficult with an almost 14 month old around (though I did build the new toy shelf organizer that I can't show you because it's in his room and he's asleep). So Jay built it last night, and I will fill it with his clothes. My husband's a pretty big guy, so we got the biggest dresser we could (I should have stood next to it...it's almost as tall as I am) :)
I'm also going to be decorating (sadly, for the first time) our bedroom. I went to the hardware store and got some pieces of plywood to cover and hang as a faux headboard. Anyone have any good tips on how to do that?
In the living room:
This lovely pile of French General...
And my favorite of the changes! To the
office sewing room!
Those are most of my WIPs that are in the piecing/cutting phase on that shelf. (I know...way too many) But look at my rulers hanging there! (the ones that are hanging).
And from another angle...'cause it makes me so happy. :)
I put this little bar up myself (Jay did the rest).
I've still got totes to sort, and my dresdie color wheel to add, but it's coming together nicely. I've got plans for a design wall above the sewing machine.
Organizing and decorating is not my gift, but this feels good.
Another thing that feels good is friends! I mentioned here (# 97) that a friend (and her 2 boys) moved back to the area. She stopped by to use the computer the other day. The boys had cookies. :)
S has been up for a while now. He needs me. Until later...
