My New Stitching Room

This week has been busy, busy, busy! Each day I've been on the go and by the time I get home I'm just too tired to stitch or Blog :o(

As I mentioned in a previous post, we 'were' expecting delivery of our new entertainment unit this past Monday. Well...they called Monday and asked for directions but it turns out they were on the other side of the province. Apparently there are two places with the same name. Okay, so I explain where we are and set up delivery for Wednesday. Well...they called Wednesday and asked for directions but guess what? They went to the OTHER place...AGAIN! Maybe I didn't speak proper English when I gave them the directions ;o) Now it's set up for this coming Monday morning. We'll see if they can find us this time. The third time's a charm right? LOL!

In the meantime, we've been getting things ready and one of my jobs was to rearrange my stitching room to accommodate my revamped sofa :o) After seeing the totes upon totes of stuff, DH says I have too many hobbies. Pfffffttttt!

This morning I went and got my hair done. It's been about ten months since I got my foils so I was due. I needed something to cover those white hairs that are mysteriously popping out of my head ;o) When I arrived home, DH must have gotten one of the guys from work over because we had a case of musical chairs. LOL! So here are some pictures of my new room -


My desk remains in the same spot since all the plug-ins are along that wall -


Even poor Popcorn had to be moved -


The only problem I have with her new location is that my little 'sweetheart' can nibble the curtain if I leave it down so it has to be knotted up...


The 'majority' of my stash ;o)


And the 'new' loveseat -


Eventually I would like to get a flat screen television with built in DVD player to put on the wall above the desk. Besides that, the only other thing missing is my table and lamp. I'm still deciding which one I want to put there.

Thank you for all the wonderful comments on Sabrina :o)

Omg to be that neat and dream lol....and my New Years Resolution!

Lisa said...

yay... lovely new craft room complete with new sofa. It looks terribly "tidy" for a craft room!!

Tatkis said...

Oh, your new craft room looks great! Wish you luck with the Monday delivery :)))


Annie said...

Great room! I wish I had a separate space for crafting. My condo is an all-in-one eat, work , stitch arrangement! Always looks like a hurricane just came through!

Isn't it great to look in the mirror and so those nasty gray lines have disappeared?

Irene said...

Your "new" stitching room looks very cozy. Love how well organized you are.

TammyK said...

Looks so organized & inviting :) Congrats on getting it set up!

Denise said...

Oh, I stopped with the foils. Just not enough coverage of the white hair. I have gone to the 'full-coverage' color. ;0)

I can't believe that soda was a sectional. So what did you do with the rest of it?

Is DH daff? You have too many hobbies? Silly man. Love all the totes. What would be cool is if you showed us what was in those drawers.

Looks wonderful - Congrats!

Deborah said...

Great room! Wonderful organization. Love your little bunny.

Karen said...

Very nice...your stash is so organized!

Gert said...

Oh I luv your new room!! So organized and the loveseat looks so inviting. The paint is just lovely also..

Good luck with your third time...makes you wonder sometimes huh??

xoxo Gert

Melanie said...

Very nice!!
Man, I wish my stash was all in one place like that. I have floss stashed in one room, patterns in another, beads downstairs in a closet. It's like a workout going around and up and down trying to kit something up. lol

Love the colors in that room too! Makes me itchy to paint a few rooms in my house. :)

Stephanie M. said...

Your craft room looks great...I'm jealous!!

Daffycat said...

Looks great Cathey!

Surely it wasn't the SAME people delivering? Could they really make the same mistake again? Are you sure you weren't supposed to move to the other side of the province so when they came back they'd be in the right place? Crazy stuff!

Nancy said...

Your room looks wonderful!!

Sure hope the delivery people make it this time!

Carol said...

Too funny about the delivery company being on the other side of the province not once, but twice! I really hope things work out for you on Monday... Love the new stitching room and I'm sure your hair looks lovely, too :)

April Mechelle said...

Just great !!! I love the room !!! I hope they find you Monday !

Rowyn said...

Ooh, I likey! Your craft room is very lovely.

P. G. said...

Awesome craft room!! With the flat screen to just top it off, I can see the hours of stitching ahead!


Cindy said...

Very nice room! I'm still dreaming about the day when I can claim a room for my very own :)

Ah yes, the foils! I started doing them a few years ago, and can always tell it is time for a touch-up when I start looking too close in the mirror and plucking out white hairs.

I have also been told that I have too much hobby stuff. Whenever that comes up, I mention all of the tools. That is usually the end of the discussion!

Hope your delivery people show up as scheduled this time :)

Robin said...

Congrats! So nice to have a 'space' for your stash and a neat one at that. A flat screen will be a nice addition but watch could distract you from stitching.

Looks great! Dianntha

WendyCarole said...

Julie said...

What a great room - everything is so organized!

Lori-Ann said...

oooo... nice an cozy. I'm hoping that my sweety and I will each have a room of our own someday.

Silly bunny... curtains are for windows! ;o) At least she doesn't climb them , like my baby can.

Angela P said...

A fantastic and organized craft room :) I hope the third time is a charm with that delivery!

Julie said...

Your stitching room looks real cosy, hope the delivery arrives this time!

Justflo said...

Good Luck with the Delivery. I wish I had a special craft room. Green with envy!!!!

Brigitte said...

I hope you have got your entertainment unit today. Three tries is a good number, don't you think, lol.
Your new room looks gorgeous. And there's plenty of wall space for your cross stitched beauties. Like Sabrina. I saw her in your last post and her dress is just stunning.

♥ Nia said...

You have a fantastic space!
A tv is also on my list for my craft room but it's an extra, so, it will be one of the last things to buy.
I love your stash drawers, everything is in place and very practical! I don't have the space for something like that =/ Well, I think that I also don't have so mush stash to fill them :p Lol
How is Popcorn behaving? As she been a good girl around the house? :)
Have a great week!!! :D

PS: love your winter layout ;)
