New Craft Room

Well I'm having a new craft room, Hanni has moved out as I've mentioned before and her room is bigger than the one I'm currently in.  This one is being reverted back into a bedroom, I've had it for the last three years, it does feel a lot longer.  Her room is actually a bit bigger than mine, plus she has a dressing room.  David has planned it down to the last nut and bolt lol, he just keeps saying what about this and how about that etc, etc, etc.  So the plan of action is to strip the walls (I'm just having them painted) to find any lumps or bumps and sort them out.  Wall cupboards turned up on Saturday morning, dado trunking and LED strip light arrived Friday.  Carpet being delivered and fitted next Thursday, so the painting has to be finished for then.  

This is a link to my current craft room 
It looks all very clean and tidy, but it's nothing like that at the moment.  I have the addition of 'My Brother', he is currently living in front of the window so I don't have that much room any more, not to mention the fabric that I have squirreled away haha.

This is Hanni's room as it was being decorated when we did the house extension and looked like this when she moved out.
 My Brother will live in between the doors, so I will have plenty of sewing room.
This is the dressing room area with the floor to ceiling sliding wardrobes, soon to be my storage.
This is what it looks like at the moment
The red stuff on the floor above is the dado trunking which will be full of sockets for all my gadgets, it won't be red that is just a peel off cover.

Work in progress

This is what I've been up to today, I've been on My Brother, I've really missed this machine.  I'm doing some cushion covers for Hanni, she bought her house last October and after all the renovations she moved in March and has been waiting for cushions ever since.  I have started a couple of them before Christmas but everything had to stop because of my rubbish health.  This is a cat and will be for a cushion that will live in her bedroom, there will be two but this is the first.  I just thought I'd show my work in progress.  The design is from a set called Large Farm Animal Collection from Kreative Kiwi Embroidery and has to be sewn in two hoopings.
