What's going on

Why is my new bed doing on the floor in my livingroom??
At least Frida is having a smashing time playing the Queen of the Queen on top of it. Surely thinking: Mom, you are great giving me this new place to sleep on.

But, this is the reason:
My bedroom is now empty.
The paint is bought.
New shelfs and a desk is bought.
And the bedroom is now being turned into
A NEW SEWINGROOM
Yoooohoooo.....I finally decided (after a lot of pressure from my friends) to move my tiny little sewingroom into a bigger room. I agreed with them that I spend more time in the sewingroom sewing than sleeping. And sleeping can be done as well in a little room than a big one. And I really need more space in my sewingroom. But I am not looking forward to moving all my sewing stuff over to the new room. I expect it to take a lot of time because there is so many boxes and drawers to open, and I am afraid I will find a lot of forgotten stuff in them LOL But it will be fun.
Another saying for today:
Although my house is quite a mess,
come in, relax, converse.
It doesn't always look like this
sometimes it's even worse

Lykke til med nytt syrom ! Vi pusser også opp til nytt soverom, slik at jeg skal få stort syrom (som også skal pusses opp) - Gleder meg til å se det nye syrommet ditt, og alt det lekkre som var glemt og gjemt i det gamle LOL :o))

Good luck with your new sewingroom. I love this saying, it sooooo describes my home. Thanks a lot!

Ann Marie said...

I've suggested the same thing to my husband, but he won't give up his half of the room for my quilting. ;)

Vicki W said...

I did that in one of my previous apartments. I put my sewing room in the Master bedroom and I took one of the small ones. It was a perfect set up!

Dette ser bra ut!! Gleder meg til å se det ferdige resultatet.
PS. Frida ser ut som en blekkflekk på lakenet. Hehehe.

siv hege said...

A genious thing to do!! Did the same, never regret :)

MARYNAN said...

Great saying May Brit!! I do agree. You won't know yourself with a larger sewing room as well. Oh what fun opening forgotten boxes again. I wonder what treasures you may find lurking therein!!!!!!

Carin said...

WOOO HOO a bigger sewing room is awesome Congratulations!

Lise in Norway said...

Så flott May Britt! Dette gleder jeg meg til å se ferdig.....Jeg så et flott tips på arbeidsvegg.....flanell var satt fast på en rullegardin på veggen....da kan du rydde vekk når det trengs
Lykke til videre

Regner med du vil finne mange skjulte skatter i bokser og esker når du har en slik "oppsummering" etterhvert som du skal plassere alt i det nye sy-rommet. Så herlig du får et større rom å kose deg på:o) men det er litt inspirerende å holde på med sånt, det syntes jeg når jeg holdt på i "sy-sakene" mine for ei stund siden, og jeg er ikke ferdig å rydde på plass ting enda... jeg måtte bare sy imellom :o)
Kos deg med malearbeid, og litt dagdrømming ilag med det:o)

Can't wait to see your new sewing room all put together! Your cat is adorable :o)

quiltygal said...

Congrtulations May Britt..It will be lovely to have more room.....I agree sleeping is very overated !! takes up sewing time !!

Hanne said...

Good going !
I am looking forward to see your new sewing room - and bedroom :-)

cdnj said...

What a wonderful idea for the sewing room. I can't wait to see what you do with your new rooms.

Annette said...

What a fun project! Lots of work but the fun kind of work...sorting and organizing all your precious sewing supplies just the way you like them to be. Can't wait to see the finish.

Mary said...

Good for you! I finally convinced my Mom a couple years ago to get rid of the large bed in the middle of her sewing room and replace it with a day bed that takes up much less space. She was reluctant but now she loves it. I think it's important to give ourselves as much space as possible for our quilting since that's where we spend so much of our time.

goodluck with your makeover......it will get way worse before it gets better but it will be all worth it.........

beth said...

i would switch too if i could...what a great idea! Happy moving day!

Sandi said...

I can't wait to see your new sewing room. The new bigger space will be fantastic!

GARI said...

What a great idea, you always need more sewing space. And with your eyes shut, you won't even notice that the bedroom is smaller.

Helen said...

May, that is a great idea. I think you will not regret changing rooms.

Teresa said...

Woohooo...new sewing space. I just love setting up sewing areas and wish I lived close enough to help you! But if you are like me, you probably would rather do it yourself anyway. I will be watching to see your progress.

Cattinka said...

What a wise decision to move your sewing stuff into a bigger room. You will see it will be lots of fun to open all the boxes and find some old treasures.

Så deilig det blir med nytt stort syrom!

suz said...

Excellent idea!My son is moving soon and at first I thought I'd move my bedroom and then I realized it would be so much better for sewing! I'll miss him but I can't wait for that room!

bluebird-lyn said...

Hello May, good luck with your new sewing room.......once completed you will enjoy it...Warm Regards Lyn

Nadine said...

Helloooo, sweet friend !
I'm back, catching up with mails and blogland... and I see you've been quite BUSY, BUSY ! ;>)
A new sewing room ??? WOW, this is gonna be GREAT ! (so you're going to sleep upstairs, now ? In "MY" bedroom ?? HeeHee).
Speaking about sewing rooms, I had arranged my son's ex-bedroom, and enjoyed it sooo much.... for a few weeks only ---> slowly but surely, it became a house storage room :o(
seems that everyone here waited for this room ! -sigh-
I think I should build a cabin in my garden, just for me, myself. LOL
XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

So funny! I just got back from IKEA in Helsinki with lots of Billy boxes!! I switched the bedroom and sewing room a while back, but now have new shelves for the living room and the old living room shelves are going in the sewing room! Good luck and have fun!!

Lynda said...

What a great idea. We all need more room in our sewing rooms. Can't wait to see it all finished.

mascanlon said...

I am just now in the troughs of deciding to switch our large guest room which only has people in it 10 nights a year with my small sewing room which I am in all the time! And here you are forging ahead! I just might take your example to heart.

Cheryl said...

How exciting to get a bigger sewing room. I can't wait to see the progress.
