Big life milestone conquered last week, you guys.
I bought a house! Well, a townhouse. Because the idea of a bunch of nonsense yard work made me think, “meh.” And because this townhouse is magical!
This milestone has been a long time coming – I’ve turned down a number of vacations and events and non-essential spending the past few years in order to make this happen. It’s so exciting that the dream is finally coming to life. Did I say exciting? I meant terrifying.
My sewing and crafting endeavors will mostly be on hold while I transition to the new house, but ultimately, this move is a big thumbs up for sewing and crafting in my life.
For one, I’ll now have enough space to host sewing and craft parties for friends — woo hoo. Maybe I’ll even host a craft party before I’m fully moved into the new place, so we can spread out and take over all of the empty, valuable floor space!
Also, I’m sure a bunch of home-related projects from my 100 No Pressure Projects list will rise to the top of my priority list…
- Covers for the decorative pillows on the couch
- Duvet cover and pillow shams (I’m really ashamed to admit I haven’t crossed this off the list yet)
- A table runner
- Fabric baskets / bins
- Hanging laundry bag (I already have one, but now Katie has requested one for her new bathroom)
And of course, a new house means a new sewing space! I haven’t exactly decided how to structure my dream craft space, but it will likely need to be combined with a guest bedroom. I’ve been Pinterest-ing like crazy, but I would love to see how your sewing space is set up. Do you have a craft/sewing area that is shared with another space, like a guest room or an office? I’d love to hear about it!
