WOYWW...

Hello all. I know you've come to see my work desk so I will get straight to the point and show you what I've been up to since you were here last....



I had an idea in mind so...
  • I filled my new cutting station with lots of yummy fabrics.  
  • I did some measuring
  • I made a pattern and then I.....
I cut out a lot of fabric ovals in the yummy colours to match my new sewing room.
  • I backed them all with some permastiff
  • I cut them all in half
  • I snipped all the curves and
  • turned them all right sides out then
  • I attached them to long strips of permastiff and........

Hey presto I decorated my new shelves  with it all.  Pretty eh?


More shelves have been put up on the other side of the room to hold all my little Ikea sets of drawers that have now been sorted, tidied and labelled so I can find everything....and of course those new shelves have been decorated too.  :-)  As you can see I really am enjoying making my new sewing room look pretty.....hope you like it too.

Thanks for popping by.  Please leave me a little comment to let me know you've called in and I will drop by at yours as soon as I can.
I also want to say a big sorry to the google+ bloggers that visit me because I am able to read their posts but am unable to leave them a comment.....I do try honest.
Have a great week,
Hugs,
Annie x

Annie your sewing room is looking great and decorating the shelves like that is genius. I remember the excitement I had when I first moved into my own den, and I barely move out of it now! It's in need of a thorough clean at the moment and your post has given me the kick to get on and do it and return it to its former glory. X

Julia Dunnit said...

Google + is a pain, they want to be all over your stuff - dont let them in! I love the roundy bunting, what a great idea, it looks so pretty and cheering!

Diana Taylor said...

Hi Annie,

Nice banner (could you call it bunting?) for your shelves. At first I thought you were going to make yo-yos.

I'll be joining in with you tomorrow (yay).

Hugs,
Kay
