This is my reason for lack of posting. I have been "Spring" cleaning. I decided since Shelby had moved her bedroom downstairs I would take her old bedroom and make it an office/sewing room. I have a sewing room downstairs but I never sew in it. Well, up and down a ladder and whatnot I hurt my back. Gosh! is this a sign of my getting old? Anywhoo, I went to the doctor and he gave me a shot, and put me on some other meds, and supposedly I am going to be as good as new. I am still a little stiff and can't bend but, I'll be back in the shop tomorrow! Here are a few pic's of the new room. I haven't moved anything in yet, but plan on hitting Ikea tonight for my desk. I'll post pictures as soon as its all decorated and still clean!

I hate to hear that... I hope you feel better soon. I thought you were just enjoying this great weather!! With you I should have known better, it's never that easy for you to get away.

They have some fun stuff at IKEA but you may also want to look at "project desks/project tables". There used to be a great one at Macy's but I don't know if they still carry it. Also, there is a great one with a great price at SAM's. They have the dual opening and they are a good height.

Enjoy the meds!! :)

I just found your shop/blog. I have a question for you. I made a baby blanket, one side is brown silk, the other is a mostly white minky pattern. I didn't prewash the fabrics, because I didn't want them to fray and damage.

So what do you think I should use to set the color? I've heard of using vinegar, but I also hear it eats the material overtime. I talked to your daughter and she said to use Retayne or Synthrapol and that you would know which one would work better for my situation.

Do you carry the Synthrapol? And can I have it sent to my house (I live in Spanish Fork and my baby is due in two weeks and I don't think I'll be making it up to SLC anytime soon ;) Thanks for all your help. I hope you get feeling better!

Ouch! Hope you're on the mend soon. I love IKEA. That's where my sewing "desk" came from... Love it!

Hope you are back to "normal" (lol)soon.

Can't wait to see the pics of your new room. My own sewing room is full of IKEA. A large desk is my sewing table and cubbies and cabinets offer great storage!

Sorry about your back! I have been through this myself. My advice, find a good chiropractor! One who specializes in back issues. Mine was lower back. Hope this helps in case your shots don't work. (they didn't for me) Looking forward to more pictures of your work space when its done! :)
