My Stu-dee-ooo, ha ha

 This is it, warts and all, 1/2 of a small bedroom.  I was just in Joann fabrics and you know how you have to wait in line forever and forever?  I don't really mind because I get to look at all the expensive magazines they have in the "waiting forever" line.  I picked up a copy of Where Women Create and although I am so happy that the real artists have those wonderful places I am sure not too many of us would make the next issue. Would you have the nerve to show your work space?  I dare ya!
This corner has an apron I made from a pillowcase and a turkey that didn't sell, a doll quilt and a topsy turvey doll that my mom made.  The cabinet and blackboard came from the Dirt Diva booth at Town Peddler.  My SIL Jeff looked at the cabinet and said "seriously???"  The kleenex box was from the resale place, even tho some say you wouldn't want to buy upholstered furniture there.
My old Kenmore is about 30 years old.  The little cubbie I got from the Dirt Divas also and the thread holder from a fellow Lindbergh crafter years and years ago.
 PJ redid this cabinet in chalk paint.  It came from my neighbor Gail.  The box on the top is full of letters written by my mother and grandmother and friends from long ago.

The jars are full of buttons, the egg boxes are vintage (ya can't get them anymore).  Jackie gave me them.  There's a mop and broom and some bears I made that didn't sell.   The picture is of some 40's ladies "talking sewing".  Well that's about it....are you inspired yet????

In June I said with a sigh, guess I won't have any zinnias this year.  They were just messin' with me.

Hello friends, hope everything is going well with you.
