I really am making progress with organizing the quilting studio. Look! I got a quilt hung! We had some decorative drapery rods from a previous house we lived in and we repurposed one of them as a quilt hanger. The space between the tall cabinets is not terribly wide (48"), so hanging an unfolded quilt probably will not be an option, since I typically make bed sized quilts. I rather like the look of this quilt against the pale green walls.
As you can see by the glimpse of the cardboard carton at the lower left of the photo, I still have many a mile to go before all is stowed away.
This is the little corner of the room I was working on yesterday. I had intended this to be my reading nook. The original idea was not to have sharp objects hanging over my head, but the peg board just didn't work on the other side of the cutting table wall. It is probably terrible fung shui. Guess I could put the scissors and rotary cutters elsewhere for a better vibe.
The other thing is, I wanted to paint that darn peg board to match the walls before it got hung up, but I didn't catch my husband in time. Darn. He promises me that he will paint it, but now that it is up, I have my doubts that will happen. I need to take note of how I have things hung, and one fine day I will just take everything off it and paint it myself!
Today while the baby naps, maybe I will sort out those books into some sort of order. I pretty much just stuck them on the shelves willy nilly (does anyone say that anymore?) just to get the boxes emptied out.
Have any of you had this issue with your husbands? You think the place to hang something on the wall is SO obvious, but to them, it is anything but. I have a wall clock that he hung randomly on the wall months ago, without asking me. Of course it was placed all wrong. So, I told him it had to be moved. He was very unhappy about the wasted hole in the wall, and having to do the job twice. I explained that I wanted the clock hung over the dresser, not in the middle, but centered over the drawers on the right. I thought it was obvious what I was trying to describe.
Three inches over to the right is what I had in mind. The bottom of the clock should line up with the drawer pulls on the right. Well, he is not moving that clock for the third time, so I guess I will have to push the dresser over so the clock lines up right. And then the electrical outlet will be exposed....
Happy first Monday in March everyone.
