Did I tell you that I’m in the process of moving? I’m not very good at sharing personal hurdles and hiccups, mostly because I would never want you to think I’d take a short sabbatical from sewing or this place. Madalynne and sewing are my child. Does a mother ever take a day off?
Back to moving. I’m in the midst of decorating and to say that I’m having fun is an understatement. There are two closets in my new place, and after all my talk on refining wardrobes, I edited mine even more, fit all my clothes into one closet and made the other into a sewing space. That’s what I call making the most of 600 square feet! I wallpapered the back wall with, you guessed it, flamingos! Freaking flamingos. You can take the girl out of Florida, but you can’t take Florida out of the girl. Then, I bought a reclaimed maple desk from a local vintage seller. The color is slightly off, but when everything is together, I think it will “go,” if you know what I mean. In front of all of this is an orange, polka dot carpet. I hung shelving this week – I’m becoming quite the handywoman – and hopefully, I’ll put finishing touches on it this weekend. People, I’m a little obsessed.
Happy sewing this weekend. You know that will be the case in Chateau Madalynne II.
