Over a year ago, we had a leak in our roof and wouldn't you know, it leaked right over my sewing machine. Thankfully, no damage to the machine because it leaked more on the extension table than the actual machine head. I figured with the warm weather, it was a good time to have the roof repaired. But lordy, that meant moving all of my bins, the sewing table, etc.
I had a friend of my oldest daughter to do the job. He's in construction and his work has slowed down so it was a win-win for us both. I didn't think to take a before picture but the damage to the ceiling was just discoloration. The real damage was to the ledge of the soffit where the stucco was cracked and separated. Here it is all fixed up and better. The acoustic was still a little wet but it has dried now and blended in perfectly.
Then I had to deal with this!! But I got it all put away and my room is pretty once again.
I didn't do one ounce of sewing this weekend though. I spent both days in the game room. All of my craft stuff had been moved to the closets in that room when my hubby left and I moved to the spare bedroom. I "had" to get that sorted out before I leave in a month to go see Richard in Turkey again. By the time I get back, it will be time to prepare for Ashley's baby shower and the baby shortly after that. I figured giving up one weekend will be worth it. The closets are organized but they are packed!! This one is a hundred years worth of family photos...I swear I will put some in scrapbooks someday! Then there are all the other craft items you might need one day.
Ashley and I moved this desk to the game room to make room outside of the master bedroom for a dresser for the baby. I swear I feel like we're just moving stuff around all over the house! lol We did fill some bins for either donating or if Kelley, our oldest, has another yard sale, she can try to make a few bucks from it.
Here is the other closet. I had to share this picture. The crates will go to the garage but we had already closed the doors for the night so I'll put them out there tomorrow. Check out those clear bins. Those are all clothes given to Ashley for the baby from her friend. She has two little girls and had a boy so she doesn't need all those "pink" things! lol While I cleaned up the game room, Ashley sorted through all of the boxes and got them put in age/size. We're getting this place organized....even if it kills me and it probably will! :o)
