The Nest ( my sewing room) update

Things are progressing slowly in the nest

In one of my favourite movies there is a line that goes like this

"Pick one room and make it yours. Go slowly through the house. Be polite, introduce yourself so it can introduce itself to you." - Frances Mayer, Under the Tuscan Sun

Whilst the nest is just one room, I am going slowly, being polite, introducing myself and letting the room guide me . . . .

Initially my tall boy was out in the room, but it did nt feel right so after gadget did a bit of work on it, it was tucked away into the wardrobe










Gadgets handy work

my old cotton reels , complete with their thread, made into draw knobs
Don t they look great . . . .

So why did nt the tall boy feel right?

Well because for the past 12 months my gorgeous meat safe from Nundle has been right beside my sewing cabinet and I missed it so now it s found a new spot in the Nest















My design wall is finished




No design wall

I really like my cosy little room, it is my little safe haven, my own special space
A place I can create and be creative in . . .

I love the knobs on the tall boy drawers - very clever! Your room is looking good...it's great to spend some time playing in a room that is all yours - surrounded by all your "stuff" - enjoy!

It's coming along very nicely. Love the handles, and the design curtain is a great space saving idea. I hope you get to spend some more time in there.
