Finished Room Two of Three

We have finished turning my old sewing room into Trystan’s room.  Most of the furniture from Trystan’s and Owen’s old room has been moved to Trystan’s room.  Only one dresser and night table will move back.  When we have company Owen will temporarily move into Trystan’s room into the second bed and his room will be used as a guest room.  They are currently sharing while we work on his room.

Here is a view of the room set up as my sewing room.


Here it is all done and ready for Trystan to move in:

I spent a few hours cutting and sewing in my new sewing room today.  My inaugural project was to make pillow covers out of two molas that my parents brought back from one of their cruises.  Dad has been doing some renovating of his own and thought these molas would look good as pillows on his new couch.  He probably won’t see the blog before I give them to him for Christmas tomorrow, but even if he does it won’t ruin a surprise.  He knows he’s getting them.

Merry Christmas.  Time to wrap presents and fill stockings.
