That looks brilliant, I am totally jealous especially as all my sewing paraphernalia has been packed up and put into the basement as I have no time to sew at the moment sad. Love the baskets, always makes things look tidy.

Are you jealous SoupDragon or feeling poorly?

I've got to fill & paint the wall behind it before I fill it with all my lovely stuff!! I can't wait!!

So exciting!!

Katymac Mon 04-Apr-16 17:13:27

OK I need colour help

The wall behind the table is grey (Egyptian Cotton), the wall opposite is soft sage green (Croquet) & I have some lime green

I have one of those Ikea mini drawers with 3 drawers at the top, 2 in the middle & one at the bottom

So how do I order the paints?

I hate you grin
It looks fab!

I am beyond envious

I gave up my craft and sewing room for dd and dd to have as their den and gaming room and I am grumpy about it

cookiefiend Mon 04-Apr-16 17:16:25

Sooooo nice!

Oh I love the Egyptian Cotton colour. Had it in our old house and have just painted a wall in our new house with it smile

Very jealous of your craft area. Mine's stashed around the house with a 'handy' area on the back of the sofa (out of the toddler's reach!) grin

G, LG, Grey
Grey, G

Work so no two drawers are the same colour?

I have never been hated so much on MN - does it make you feel better if you know I just lost my job? & that's why I have the space?

Katymac Mon 04-Apr-16 17:28:54

Purple is there a small cat in your bag?

Katymac Mon 04-Apr-16 18:49:16

You all hate me & aren't talking to me sad

I do think

will work

No small cat in the bag smile Several WIPs though in various bags.

Not sure about colours (I leave that to DH or in the case of our lounge, copied a Farrow and Ball picture!). I'd just go for it, it can always be repainted.

Katymac Mon 04-Apr-16 20:52:45

When I made it bigger I could see no cat but it did look a bit like that really grin

Katymac Mon 04-Apr-16 22:16:03

In contrast the other end of the room looks like this

Katymac Thu 07-Apr-16 21:38:55

& someone just gave me a size 12 form & I'm collecting a size 8-14 adjustable one next week (£20)

SoupDragon Thu 07-Apr-16 21:43:54

Will there be more malevolent swans?

Oh happy memories of days of long ago!

glorious Thu 07-Apr-16 21:45:29

Jealous. That is all!

Katymac Thu 07-Apr-16 21:46:47

oh god I hope so - that was a bargain on eBay £25 for that bloody dress - I'll never get such a good buy again!!

Can you imagine the swan it is now on one of those dressmaking forms in the corner of the room!!

Katymac Thu 07-Apr-16 21:47:49

glorious - you did see the other end of the room pic?- I could cry at that bit!!

SoupDragon Thu 07-Apr-16 21:53:39

That swan is eyeing you up. Be afraid, be very afraid... smile

Katymac Thu 07-Apr-16 22:01:39

I'll cope - I think it's beautiful!!

glorious Thu 07-Apr-16 22:57:35

Yeah but I'm still jealous! My DD could play with all the toys and I could sew grin

I love the dress as well. The movement in the skirt is amazing.

Katymac Fri 08-Apr-16 08:25:38

The jumble sale bit is the end of 13 years of nursery so it's really sad as I'm selling it all

My DD is 18 wink

You can't beat order, everything in its place - it looks fab.
