My sewing studio makeover is almost done!

Maybe I’m being a tiny bit optimistic saying my sewing studio is almost done, but I can rightfully say that the painting is done at least!

Let me remind you what it looked like BEFORE… with beige carpet and lemon yellow paint:

Click here to see what it looked like last Saturday and read more about the paint colors.

Yesterday we finished painting and started putting some fixtures back up. We still have blinds and closet doors to re-install, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel…

Especially since the bamboo flooring is here and will be installed next week, fingers crossed!

As I painted this week I couldn’t help but feel grateful for a family that so completely supports me in my sewing pursuits. I remembered how my sewing space grew from a corner of the family room (just a few years ago) to taking up the entire ‘formal’ living room in our house, and now I will have my very own studio, what a dream! Each time we have invested in my… what? career? the opportunities for me to do more have come with it. Like chances to write, teach, and travel. Although I don’t feel much like traveling now. I really just want to hide away in my new studio and sew! 

This is the spare bedroom where I sew right now. I just finished 3 talent show dresses! Pretty soon my minions will be set to work carrying all of my sewing stuff upstairs, yay!

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

    I am so happy I stumbled upon you! Even though my kids are grown and I don’t have grandbabies I still enjoy all that you write/share. Your new sewing room is amazing! I am so envious. Got me to thinking, maybe I could talk the hubs into blowing out the wall between two of the bedrooms to make one big space?? I’ll let you know how that goes….
