New sewing room do up!

So I'm giving my sewing room a do up.  I've been painting, making new curtains, sewing and painting containers, I haven't finished yet but thought I'd give you a sneak preview of how I'm doing so far.  Hope you enjoy.  Can't wait till it's all done!

Yay, pretty much finished my sewing room now. It's only tiny, but with lots of shelving I can squeeze everything in, sort of !

Another fabric container

Made this fabric container for my new sewing room. Have decide this is the colour I want and will do 3 or for in different sizes to put in my new spruced up sewing room. Will take photos when it's all completed.
Have stitched the inside corner pieces in a way that I can store small scissors and pens or pencils in.

Tauranga Patchwork and Quilters group 25th anniversary

Tauranga Patchwork and Quilters group in the North Island of New Zealand. That's where I live. It's been going for 25 years now, and recently we all went out for lunch to celebrate. A great group of ladies and a great time we all had. I'm on the right in dark blue and with curly hair.

Containers for my revamped sewing room.

My dear husband has given me the go-ahead to do up my sewing room. New paint, curtain, and heaps of shelving. Can't wait to get started. So have decided to make a few fabric containers to put some of my stuff in. This is the first one, hope to make them in different sizes to put on the shelves. Man I can't sleep thinking about all the things I want to do to the room. As I said to my hubby, I want to plan it carefully, I'll probably not get another chance for a very long time, and I want to try to have no regrets.
