Poor, Neglected Sewing Room

Life that crazy, unpredictable aspect of our existance. Because Life Happens, it's going on two and a half weeks of no sewing. I think I'm going into major withdraws. I need to get out of this funk! After months of not looking or going to Pinterest, I got sucked into it's wormhole a couple days ago and went on a pinning spree. So go check out my boards, there are lots of recipes, Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas ideas, and some cute tutorials.

I don't have any sewing pictures to share with you, but here are some pics of a few things that were going on.

DD#2 and Hubby are building a wall in the front. It's been slow going since the weather has been in the 100s. It's looking really good now at 4 stones high.

Lil Man was out with us that day too.

We got our new kitchen/dining room table in. It's a German eckbank (or Corner Bench). Our first table in 10 yrs. The one we had been using was a hand-me-down from his parents. The long and short benchs lift up to have a small storage area under them.

The girls had to have pink cowgirl boots when we went to the farm store. DD#2 has worn her everyday since we bought them. She loves them, as you can tell from her expression.

My Misfit's Doll Quilt Swap quilt came in the mail with some AWESOME goodes from Amy at The Needled Fig. I already have it hanging up in my sewing room (one of the few times I've been in there). DD#2 had claimed it as hers. She had wrapped it around herself like a skirt saying it matched her shirt. I took it away when she went to sleep.

My fabric finally came for my next dress. I am going to be using this with the Meghan Peasant Dress from Jennifer at SisBoom. I can't wait to get started! I am going to use the cap sleeves with this one.

I have a pretty purple-ish rose on my rosebush!

Well, that's all for now. I can't wait to sew something up and show it off to you all!

Happy Sewing!

So many things to comment on! Everything looks so great! Hope those little cowgirls will be wearing those boots in Wyoming soon, if only for a visit. :)

Looks like you have many reasons to get back to sewing! Love the doll quilt from Amy. I was wondering who that was for! And do I spy the Swoon pattern in that photo? Gah! I want to make that!!!

Your kids are so adorable, Amanda. I can't wait for a play date (one for the kids and one for us) when you move closer to me =)
