I have had the most marvelous time putting "Neesey's Nook" in working order! My darling hubby did the hard stuff . . . hanging insulation and pegboard, painting, laying linoleum, and hanging shelves! But then I got to come in and do the fun stuff! So let's start at the front and I'll give you a little tour. First off, no door of mine is complete without a wreath:
This is the perfect place for this very "campy" wreath (although after looking at it, I think I will move the hook up to the top part of the lattice)! And then if you look directly down...
You'll see I purchased (with a Bed, Bath & Beyond gift card I got for Christmas) a lovely, heavy-duty mat -- which is an absolute must when you leave in the middle of the woods. Trust me.
Probably the first thing you see when entering is the ironing corner:
Oh gosh, I do love pegboard! Let me get in a little closer here . . .
Isn't that fun? I love those little baskets! And my sprays looked much neater and easier to grab. My "Count it *all* JOY!!!" mini won't stay there . . . I'm just trying to hide the worst of the ironing board stains!
A quick peek up here . . .
Todd installed this shelf so I'd have a place to put my fabric bins! These bins are my stash (usually a fat quarter or less), organized by colors. I have a couple of rubbermaid tubs of yardage. Shhhh. We left the roof unfinished. I may go back and paint it white, later. But for now it was good as it was and I rather like the rustic look.
On down and around is the cutting corner. I can't think of anything more phenomenal than having one's rulers and templates all available at one's fingertips.
Well, most of them are in finger reach. If you move on past the window, you'll see where my bigger rulers and templates are hanging:
You see that there is the door (where we came in). Just to the right of the door (or to the left, if you're outside looking at the front) is my sewing corner . . .
Isn't it darling?! I found a nifty pegboard hanger that was just perfect for my scissors! And then right above the window:
JOY! And buttons! Both very good things. Would you believe I got two of the "JOY" decorations for Christmas?! It actually made me very happy. First of all, that people associate that word with me (and that's all Jesus) and secondly, because it gave me one for the RV and one for my nook! Perfect. Each one of the windows has open space above it. This window has the entire width, and the other two are divided by a 2X4.
Now that Neesey's Nook is open for business, we also have our dining nook back in the RV:
Yay! We can have breakfast at the table together again! LOL!!
So that was nook assembly . . . now for quilt assembly. On the 'wall' this week is, of course, the pineapple quilt. I finished the hand-stitching and now to prepare the top and bottom pieces to attach:
My seam coverings will be a LOT longer. But gauging from the layout below, all my black lines are going to line up perfectly. Whew!
This may be the biggest quilt I've ever pieced *and* quilted by myself! And there's still an 8.5" border to go all the way around. I cannot wait to have it on my bed for real!
Linking up today with Patchwork Times. Have a GREAT week!!
