   Hello all! I have been doing a lot of thinking lately as I find myself wondering how my sewing room has shrunk.And then it hit me! The most important  thing to convey to our children as they leave the nest for college, etc. Here goes... If you have the biggest bedroom in this house, and my sewing room is in the smallest, should you come home to visit or (God forbid!) live, reduce your things to fit in that smaller room! Real estate is expensive and I will not pay for a large shrine. However, being the good sport that I am, I will cheerfully set you up in "my old sewing room". I will even make sure all the threads are off the floor.
     Now don't get me wrong, I love my kiddies, but man oh man it seems silly to have a big empty room and cram myself into a small one. There is also the added bonus of having two! yes two closets to stuff fabric in. Because thats what we do. Because we can. Amen. And then of course, with the holidays upon us, we have more room to hide clutter when our guests arrive. Just sayin'. 
   Anyway.....Hope to see you all at our Christmas Tea on Saturday December7th. We will have goodies for everyone and will be offering 25.00 gift certificates for 20.00. Send your family in for the best gift ever!

No not mine but one can hope!


  1. this blog post, and that you're Sew Screwed up!! Progress @ my house: Dan is painting "Nich's room" tomorrow, which will hereafter be known as the ZEN ROOM!! I chose Cream Rose, accent wall in Pink Hydrangea, trim in Popped Corn ~ it is going to be bright, CLEAN and I can't wait to claim it and the walk in closet that goes with it!! [Honey-Do is in the wings ready to install shelving and new ceiling fan/light fixture! <3]
    Happy Holidays to you and your SDV partners in crime ~ plan to see you Saturday!

  2. I don't think I had moved out for more than a month before my mom took over my old room! You've been mighty patient :)

  3. "I'm not paying for a large shrine". I did not have kids myself, but have lived with ( and still do!) my share of other peoples children under my care. My sister wasted no time putting looms in the rooms her children abandoned when they went to college. When they came home they got to sleep in the basement. It wasn't a bad basement, but it wasn't "their" room. No amount of cajoling moved my sister into putting the looms in the basement and when they didn't like the turn of events they found jobs and got apartments. So hurray for you! Enjoy your sewing room and be creative at home GUILT FREE!
