New Shelves and New Look

Not much sewing these past few days. My husband made me a book shelf to replace a "not so nice" cupboard in my sewing area. It was my job to stain and finish it - all done - 

Yesterday I spent some time clearing out things in my sewing area (still have to go through bins of fabric in the storage room - but that is for another day and a whole other messy story!). 
I even found a spot for my Quilt Along quilt on top of the shelves (it's too big for any of our beds).

I am really pleased with the new shelves, they have given my area a whole new look. 
We had the wood in the garage for a few years now, so it was good to use it up, although now that I know what DH can build I have a few other projects I would like him to make!

On the table in the photo above is my Dresden Plate quilt - I pinned all the layers together yesterday, I plan on starting the quilting at tomorrow night's Friday Night Sew In.

The grey partridges where at bird feeder this morning. They are all so round. Lots of fun to watch, especially when they start running (I can't help but think of "The Partridge Family" intro from the 70's).

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

I really enjoyed the tour of your sewing room. I just love to see how people organize and what they like to hang up on the walls for inspiration. I hope you will post about the other walls also. Have a good weekend and I hope you get alot done at the sew in. Lisa

Your sewing space is great. Love the antiques on the wall. The partridges are so cute - my only issue with your post is that I'll have that Partridge Family song in my head for the next week LOL! Hello world here's a song that we're singing, c'mon get happy ....

Thanks so much for sharing the new shelves your husband made. I loved looking at your sewing room. Hope you will post your fabric stash as well. I'm with Corina the Patridge Family song is very catchy. Have fun quilting your Dresden plate quilt tonight.
