Thank goodness I woke up this morning feeling much, much better! Thanks for all your well wishes--that's probably what did the trick. Either that, or it was just one of those 24-hour bugs. In any event, I felt well enough today to get everything done that I'd planned.
I was able to get the bathroom put back together. Want a peek? It's too small a room to get a very good shot, but you can see a little bit from the doorway.
With that egg yoke yellow, there's just no way anyone can enter that bathroom in the morning and not instantly wake up, is there? It's a little crazy, but I think I like it. (To the right and out of the photo is the bath tub/shower combination. We keep our towels rolled up on top of that shelf that goes around three sides of the room about a foot below the ceiling. We've found it's the best way to extend our "storage" space!)
While I was taking photos, I thought I'd take one of the bookshelf I found at Goodwill the other day. I cleaned it up a little and put it in the Sweat Shop to hold some of my magazines--the ones I want to save intact--and some of my jelly roll and honey bun precuts. It's also a good spot for the two large button jars.
When I was puttering around in the Sweat Shop last night, one of the things I was trying to do was to clean off some space on that little desk you see to the left of the bookshelf. (That area used to be a closet, but I removed the doors and added more shelves.) I still have two baskets of patterns on the desk but at least there's a little more room now that I moved the magazines. (You can also see at least some of the mini basket quilt I'm working on up on the design wall.)
And another photo of the Sweat Shop--this one was taken near the doorway and just to the right of my chair and sewing machine. The white bread box on the table holds most of my charm packs (some with background and border fabrics), so I can easily look through what I have to pick out fabric for each month's Le Petite project.
No doubt I have a LOT of fabric, but it probably looks like I have more than I do--those shelves aren't very deep; only about 7". The room is about 9' x 9' and the shelves continue around behind my chair to the doorway (the shelves begin to the left of a window, which is just out of frame on the right). My father-in-law was kind enough to build them for me and I love being able to see what I have. It's kind of hard to get perspective, but the table is pretty much centered on the wall it's up against and extends into the room; the ironing station is around on the other side of the table.
Besides finishing up the bathroom and getting the Sweat Shop straightened up, I cleaned the rest of the house too, so now I can go back to work tomorrow with a clear conscience! (I even paid the bills--woo-hoo!) With all I did today, though, I'm pretty pooped, so I'm heading to bed for my beauty sleep. See you tomorrow!
