Here is the new Quilt Corner, and it will stay here, in its own room.
The original plan was to move back to the old Quilt Corner, in the corner of the living room, but as we were taking the old corner down, I first thought I could have a smaller table there in the future – you can see the table I tested with in the first photo in the last post - with a smaller sewing machine and hand piecing.
I know myself – it would have turned into chaos quite fast – reality check!
The new Quilt Corner used to be dear daughter 1’s old room and has doubled as a store room for my sewing stuff for a few years and it had many pieces of furniture.
It is not big – 7,7 square meters / 82 square foot, but after getting rid of some furniture I was able to fit the old Quilt Corner table under the window, so now I have a room with a view and a window!!
I find the daylight very comfortable – the old Quilt Corner did not have good natural light - and I will be able to keep all my stuff in one room (in a while) , which will give us more room in the living room.
I have voted for 2 good chairs and a small table where the old Quilt Corner used to be – where you can see DH’s comfy chair in my last post, where we can sit together having coffee and I can have a good floor lamp for my stitchery.
Since my beloved furry quilt inspector walked the rainbow bridge in March – I used a lot of time to let her in and out of the veranda door in the living room - and the girls are grown up and have moved out, I do not need a mommy commando central in the living room anymore.
I miss Miss Cat very much, to much for words, daily, but we will not have a new cat, due to allergies in the family.
Seeing her photo I can feel her fur and her smell……….
Your paw prints will forever be on my heart, Rusket!
One of those big flannel-plastic sheets from Fons and Porter + 2 table cloth weights in the 2 upper corners let me hang the design wall on a double closet door and it can easily be moved /removed. I have never had a design wall in my life – I LOVE this one!
I have even tried the sewing machine today, for the first time in over a month, but that is food for another post :-)
The new Quilt Corner is quite filled up, but we will have to move everything out of here before to long, as part of The Big Flooring Project, making the house threshold free.
I am NOT looking forward to the move out, but I am looking forward to the move in and the time after, when I can organize my fabrics properly.
If you can picture my house as a capital L, the old Quilt Corner used to be in the bend – the heel of the L, and now it is in the toe, facing north west.
