Hip Hip Hurray!!

Guess where I'm posting this from? MY NEW SEWING ROOM!! Yippie!!!

Just to refresh your memory, here is where I did all of my sewing before (better known as the Dining Room)

And now... TA DA! Here is where I get to sew NOW!
(please note my daughter Violet on the left - she picked out her clothes allll by herself today!)

I lucked out too - the desk used to sew on fit PERFECTLY into my little "shipping nook" on the left... with an inch to spare! To the right is the closet which someday will have doors and shelves.

My big, huge table to work at. Sure beats the teeny area had to clear off every time in my old room! I can actually have all my gear out for each project at once, AND cut fabric without moving over to the dining room table! Underneath the table are some of my bins for blank onesies and shirts.
Fabric!! And my current inventory of clothing which will go on a real rack as soon as I put it together.

Today also happened to be a day when Violet is home sick from daycare, so we set her up a little chair and tv so she can rest (and get her fill of movies!)Speaking of Violet, yesterday she told me she didn't want to watch a movie during her "quiet time" and instead wanted to watch me sew (awww!). Instead of watching, I put her to work! She did a really great job taking all the pins out of the bibs after they were sewn to the fleece backs. I'm trying not to get too excited about the fact that she is interested in sewing, but it sure would be fun if one or both of my girls ended up wanting to help!

I'm off to sew in my new room! Have a great day!

p.s. Denver-area moms - I'll be at The Village at Edgewater on Wednesday, March 9 from 10:30-4:00 with all my Hip Violet stuff. Stop by and let the kiddos play while you shop!
