I'm moving in

The last week has been a rollercoaster with painting, trip to ikea, moving my DD to her new bedsit in Trondheim, visiting my brother at his cabin, going to a outdoor concert and moving in to my new sewingroom. Today is my last day of my summer vacation. And I am looking forward to come back at work to relax LOL

Last weekend I started to paint my new sewingroom.
I have chosen light antique (almost white) as colour. And I am so glad I repainted the room, because the previous wall colour was so yellow-green-creamish and not that pretty. I wanted my sewingroom to be light and airy.

After a trip to Ikea I have put together a new shelf and a new drawer. (Have I mentioned I hate going around at Ikea LOL and last two weeks I have been there four times LOL)

And then I started to move in.
My old sewingroom exploded in to the new one.


Frida have already found her place in the sewingroom. Even though it was a complete mess at the desk she claimed the quilt in front of the window to be her place. And so it will be :)
Frida the quilt inspector have to have her own place in the sewingroom.

AND THEN........
tadaaaaaaaaa.........
today I finished moving in
I have a new sewingroom






From having a tiny little sewingroom with space only for one person to sit and sew, I now have room for four persons around the table. I do not understand how I manage to store everything in my previous sewingroom. I still have a lot of tidying to do. I have just moved everything from the old room to the new room, and I want to organize a little bit more.
But first
I look forward to sit down and sew
first project now will be my Stitchers angel pattern for you
stitchery is done, I just have to put it together.
And I will soon have a giveaway
first because I now celebrate my 3 year as a blogger
and second I celebrate my new sewingroom
Stay tuned.......

Saying for today:

When work is a pleasure,
life is a joy

Your new room looks great! I'm sure it feels great too. I've never been to an Ikea store, but there is one now in this area - kind of far from here, though. Someday I'll have to go see what they have.

Nancy in Norway said...

Gratulere med nytt syrom! Der blir det nok sydd mange nye prosjekter - og fullført gamle.

Lovely space to quilt with friends! Looks fantastic...when is the next stitch and gab?!!

mascanlon said...

What a fabulous space, I especially like that you have room for friends to sew with you. Now I am really contemplating a switch in my house too!

Joyce said...

Had to chuckle when you said you "love" to go to Ikea. My daughter went yesterday, and hated it. She said she'd never go back. Too much confusion and disarray for her. Love your new sewing room. It's looks so pretty. I hope you have lovely times in there with your friends.

Marit Johanne said...

Så lekkert syrom du har fått! Og så lyst og romslig. Og den quilten på veggen med quiltere på var kjempefin!

Annelies said...

Congratultions on your new sewing room. It is beautiful !!

Teresa said...

Your room is wonderful, and certainly full of light. I know Freda is very pleased with her new place in the sun too. The table you use is beautiful and I would love to see a picture of the complete chair. Looks so sturdy and like a great, comfy workspace.

sewkalico said...

Wow! what a wonderful new space! Happy sewing in your new room!

Your new room looks so inviting. I just know you will create wonderful works of art in your new space. My sewing room is a chaotic mess at the moment and in great need of a facelift as well. Maybe I need to move everything out and start over. I could pretend I'm moving into a "new" room and get it all re-organized!

Ursula said...

WOW---Awesome.......wonderfull room and yes, light-bright and all else ....choice of colors reat, plus kitty got the best spot in the house .......

crongrats to you and kitty

What a fantastic room May Britt, lots of room for friends and looks like you have great lighting as well...

Tudy said...

How wonderful to have a place like that for sewing. I would love that much room. Enjoy

larry7pokey said...

How inviting! It "oozes" creativity!

suz said...

What a wonderful new space! I hope I can transform my son's room as fast once he moves out! My son feels the same way about IKEA - we went recently (it's an hour and a half to get there) and went thru the entire store in about 45 minutes - and that was with me constantly making him wait while I checked something out. He wanted to look at beds and bureaus and leave!

GARI said...

Your room looks wonderful and I love your table. You should be very productive in that light, airy space.

Chriss said...

What a brilliant sewing room - congratulations!!!I love the idea of having room for more than one person - so cool to be able to have friends....

Chocolate Cat said...

Enjoy your new sewing room! So glad Frida already has her place.

Joy McD said...

Lovely!!! You will want to spend lots of time in that room!

MARYNAN said...

Fantastic news May Britt. Congratulations on finally moving in to your roomier sewing room. It looks just beautiful. I need a BIG tidy up in my large craft room. Seems to be that the more space I have, the untidier it gets!

carole ann said...

May, I love your new sewing room, and I have been living at Ikea for the past month. Now I have to go back to things for my sewing room. Enjoy all of that space and what wonderful light you have.

Thanks for sharing.

Your new sewing room is absolutely wonderful. Won't it be fun to have your stitching friends over for a great time of stitching together in a room that has everything :). Congrats on a job well done. Now enjoy it.

Hugs - Karen

Käranån said...

Ååååh, så fint du har fått det i ditt nya syrum! Frida ser ut att tycka om sitt nya rum också...
När jag fick ett eget syrum var det ordning och reda ungefär 3 dagar, du skulle se hur där ser ut NU! Jag blir riktigt inspirerad av dina bilder till att börja städa opp i rummet, men då vet jag inte var jag har mina saker längre...

quiltygal said...

oh you are going to have so much fun in there....I have only been to Ikea once and that was just after putting Whitney on the plane to Wales so I wasnt exactly "with it" don't remember much but did manage to buy some material...LOL

Tonya's Sewing Room said...

congrats on your new sewing room, i love it. i don't think those shelves could hold one more thing. lol

2ne said...

Kjempeflott syrom, så rent, lyst og deilig :-) Håper du får masse tid til å kose deg i dette rommet ja. Ha en flott dag.

Sandi said...

Your new sewing room is great! It's so cute that Frida has declared it great, too! LOL!

Merete said...

Kjempeflott syrom du har fått deg her. Venter spent på å se alt det flotte du kommer til å sy her inn:-)

teresa sako said...

Ohhhh! Your new sewing room looks gorgeous....
You are so much lucky.
This year I´ve join up the stitching angels swap. I already have my partner´s name and I´m looking for the next monday to came so we can start.
Sincerelly, Teresa Sako.

Jantine said...

You were brave to get all that work done in your holidays, but it was worth it, wasn't it? And lucky indeed with having a bigger room to move into. Don't think I will be able to convince my DH we need to sleep in a smaller room, but well, I just move all my stuff to the living room when necessary ;-).

maisy and the boys said...

What a beautiful sewing room. I dream of having a sewing room one day!
Enjoy.

Lynn S said...

May, your sewing room is wonderful. You will have many, many hours of joy in this special space.
A question...what is the name of the quilt hanging/designer of the four needleworking scenes? It is really nice!

Sølvi's blog said...

Gratulerer med flott syrom!

Leanne said...

What a nice space to spend some quality time. 4 trips to Ikea how brave.

Hanne said...

I am very much looking forward to inspect your new sewing room in person :-)
