Quotes on Sewing Room Wall

My daughter got to work on putting the quotes on the sewing room wall today. I wanted to show you all what she got done. I couldn’t wait to share it with you. She got about halfway with them. We hope to work on them some more on Wednesday. The ceiling is pretty high she’s having to climb the ladder to reach them. I think it’s about 9 foot something, almost 10’.
















More to come later. Thank you all for your comments!  I love having your company!!!!

Quotes for Sewing Room

My sister in law let me borrow her Cricut and I am having a ball with it! I have got several of my quotes cut out now.  I’d LOVE to get me the Christmas cartridge for mine and do some Christmas words!

The ceiling of the sewing room is pretty tall so now I am trying to figure out just how I am going to get all these stuck onto the wall with me not liking heights. My sister just so happens to be in Oklahoma now so I can’t get her to put them up there for me. Winking smile So just maybe my daughter isn’t going to be busy tomorrow or one day pretty soon so she can do the climbing for me.

Don’t know if you have ever heard of a Cricut or not but these things are something. They are so much fun to play with. Folks make things to put in their scrape books with them and cards . You can do all kinds of things with them. You can do those words to stick onto you walls with them to.

I will post some pix soon of what I am doing I hope.

Well last Saturday didn’t work out. Da daughter had a migraine and just never did feel up to it. So she promised me Saturday we’d get er done.

Here are a few I have done. For some reason I missed the d on the distracted and had to go back and do it. LOL


I just had to have this one! The little hummingbirds will go in-between the quotes so they don’t all run together.


Now you can see all of the last quote on the next pic.


I LOVE this last one! Winking smile


Like I said hopefully we can get these ON the walls Saturday. I hadn’t planned on putting any quotes on the wall where the vinyl siding on the porch used to be but I think I am going to put some. I stuck some messed up ones on it because the vinyl is textured and I wanted to see IF they would stay on it. Stuck it up there this morning and it’s still hanging on so I think it will stay on there. YEA!

One more step to getting this sewing room completed! I also bought a few 1x12’s the other day so I could get started on the part of the wall I want all those shelves. It’s going to take quite a few so I figured I would get the boards a few at a time until I got what I thought we would need.

Come back and visit me later so you can see the quotes on the wall.

Little Projects

I went to my favorite thrift store a couple days ago and I found a few things that I wanted. One was a small pair of white cotton Battenberg curtains that I made into these. I had this little pillow and it didn’t have a pillowcase so I made it one and then made an extra for when this one needs washing. The little set of curtains wasn’t but .50 and I knew I would do something with them because I LOVED the feel of the cotton!




Then I also found this little bookshelf for only 5.00 bucks. I am in BAD NEED of some book shelves for all our books! I will have to touch this one up and get some of those little doo dads that you stick in the holes on the sides for the shelf to sit on. I had one pack but didn’t have enough for the second shelf to sit on. I’ve got to screw the back on a little better than it is to. But that’s no biggie. It will make a nice little book shelf I think. In fact I am highly considering making me a pattern from it so I can make a couple more but maybe a little taller. Like I said I NEED some bookshelves for all these BOOKS we have! I ALMOST bid on a couple large ones last weekend at the auction but they went wayyyy too high for pressboard ones when I can make them out of 1x12” pine and it be solid board and no warping to boot.


Last but not least, some of my rolls of shelf paper for a project in the sewing room. Remember me telling you all about putting some sewing quotes at the top of the sewing room wall? Well some of these rolls are for that and then some are for covering boxes with for storing magazines and other stuff. The one on the end on the right side, I found when I found the bookshelf and the other things. It wasn’t but like .50 as well.


My daughter was with me when I bought all the pinks and green ones, thank goodness. I’d been worried the greens would have clashed with the green on the walls but she said no, so I got it. It doesn’t clash thank goodness!



Stay tuned because I hope to shortly have my quotes made for the walls.
