No Sewing...BUT, Still a Great Day! AND Happy July 4th!

I was drinking my coffee, still in my pajamas (hadn't EVEN had breakfast!) when I looked out the window and my plans for sewing WENT OUT THE WINDOW! The guy in the brown uniform was outside with two HUGE boxes!

Hubby was playing golf. I should wait for him, right? NO, I couldn't wait. I opened the boxes, got dressed, ate breakfast and started on construction. Times TWO.

I put them together all by myself and even moved them into place. And I love them! They are not fully styled yet...give me some time, and I'll get there. I want to find some PRETTY lidded boxes or baskets to store current works-in-progress. No more visible plastic bins. Forgive me for wanting my sewing room, where I spend so much time, to be pretty. It's visible as soon as you come in our front door. I still want to hang curtain panels - maybe I'll make them? And yes, my desk needs cleaning off. It's a work in progress in itself, though I'm SO glad I ordered these shelves.

Yesterday Hubby and I ran some errands and then had some porch time with the dogs.

Today we'll be grilling out hamburgers and hotdogs, and in general...chilling. For those interested in the cookbook I mentioned yesterday, you can find Cotton Country Cooking HERE. It's been my favorite cookbook for 40 years!

Happy July 4th to you!


  1. Why aren't you talented! Carpentry work too!! Yea for you!

  2. It is a great feeling to have something new in your home. The cupboards look amazing and suit with the pattern of the room.
