New in My Sewing Room






I'm so excited that the wall above my sewing table has finally been decorated!


The gorgeous cabinet was made by Jace Weber. Judy has mentioned Jace and his fabulous workworking, and I've also talked about his work in a prior post on the Nelly table. (Scroll down for the Nelly story.) Jace and Sally's church holds an annual Lord's Acre Sale and auction. Jace donated this cabinet to that auction. Although we're half a country apart, I was the lucky winner of the auction! I asked Jace if I could order a quilt hanger to match the cabinet. Imagine my surprise when the quilt hanger arrived -- with a beautiful wallhanging by Sally! I'm just the luckiest gal alive!


Last night my friend, Jane, and her sweet husband, Jim, came over to hang these for me. Bless his heart, he pulled out the sewing cabinet and crammed himself between the table and the wall to get these hung! I'm thrilled that they are hanging just as I envisioned them. I had been saving that wall for something special! And they also helped me turn that thick mattress on my bed.


We had a great dinner. Grilled steaks, baked beans, potatoes, salad, bread, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Also andouille sausage and apple/chicken sausage. I was stuffed! What a fun day!


I've been so blessed with having these special people in my life. Sally and Jace , Jane and Jim - I love you!

Tomorrow I clean off the sewing table, arrange the cabinet and shelf, and I sew!!

I'm so happy!

They look like a perfect pair! And the wall hanging - what a lovely surprise!!! Jim is a good sport to get these hanging so straight on your wall for you - but it sounds like he was well feed for his efforts - Mmmm Mmmm sounds yummy!

Cheers!

Hi Vicky, They look terrific! I like your sewing space, you're very organized. I know Sally of course but never met Jace but I've seen a few pieces of his wood working at RiM and they're beautiful. Love that wallhanging!

Those are beautiful additions to the wall. The Nelly table is adorable. I wish I had one of those.

I can relate to your old sewing room. I also had a tiny sewing room many years ago and I can honestly say it's where I did some of my best work, all kinds of sewing. Although my sewing room is now bigger it still used as a guest room to. I also used my dining room as a sewing area for some years. My husband was so patient and never complained.
