Kathryn posted about her cleaning attack this week. Strange how contagious that "virus" became :) My sewing room was a disaster, cluttered, cramped and dated. I had ordered a great indestructible new rug (smaller and designed for an outdoor patio), a buffet to serve as storage and ironing station, and a table-top ironing board to replace my giant board that was always "out," but had not really made a plan to do the work. These items arrived very quickly! I guess this weekend was destined to be the cleaning weekend.
Friday: Finish the projects currently in progress and get them out of the way.
Saturday: Up at 5:30 a.m. to move all of the furniture out, put the old rug out for BC to haul to the dumpster for me, make a trip to the diner to relax and fuel up. Back home to dust and wash every surface, object and tool, scrub the floor 3 x, knit in between drying periods, wax the floor, trim and lay the new rug pad, lay the new rug, put everything back. To bed at 10:30 p.m.
Then back home to put the buffet together. BC arrived just as I was running out of steam and finished it up for me. He muscled it into place, cleaned up the mess and admired the new arrangement. What a kid!
Wa la....the "new" sewing room! Now, a nap sounds pretty good.
