Exciting things to come

After a few unsettled weeks over the beginning of January - messy builders and a very untidy house, the end is now in sight.....Sew Ray Me is getting a sewing room!

I particularly like the sound of an 'atelier' -

noun
  1. a workshop or studio, especially one used by an artist or designer.

Yes...that's where you'll soon find me - in my atelier!

Never did I think we'd ever find the space in our tiny house to fit in an extra room, but we have. Joshua's bedroom has had a new wall put up and had a complete makeover (he loves it). And I now have a little room at the back of the house which will have the sunlight streaming in the window all day long.


























As soon as the builders were done, my mum and I spent almost a week solid wallpapering and painting.

Bye bye blue.  Hello light and airy atelier!

I love my grown up wallpaper and new carpet - 


In order to maximise space in such a small room, we had shelves built into the walls, the actual joists are in the shelf uprights!


I can't wait to fill these with all my (pretty) craft books.

I haven't yet 'moved in' - that's happening next week.  The furniture (flat packed from the blue and yellow shop) is being built as I type.  I do, however, have a pretty light shade already put up - 


The light shade is from dotcomgiftshop.com and I also have a lovely neutral blind from Dunelm Mill


It's all coming together nicely!

Hopefully it shouldn't take me long to move my fabric (actually who am I kidding - that in itself will take most of the week haha!).  I think there will be lots of trips up and down the stairs, and finding lots of things that I'd forgotten about in my tidying up/moving upstairs process.  But I can't wait to be in my new space, and I'm dying to get creating again and playing with some of the new pretty fabrics I've added to my stash lately....


And here's a little peek of what's to come, (and in more gorgeous new fabric combinations!)


I'll be sharing more pics of my new atelier as soon as it's ready!
