Well, cleaning is not my favorite thing...and I'm pretty good at avoiding it :-) but this arrived at my door yesterday. It goes in the loft - but where!
Over the last couple months I've managed to cover floor and tables with patterns, projects, and miscellaneous things. Actually, it's been kind of fun. However, it's time to clean and organize. This new dress form is for Ashley's garments. Yes, I'm getting pretty spoiled. No more readjusting Emile between the two of us - I'll have two dress forms! I did get a great price on this, I've been keeping an eye out for one for a while now. It will be super nice, since I usually having sewing in progress for both of us at the same time.
I'll take of pic of the girls once this is set up and named. Ashley is pondering the latter.
No pics of the mess, but the loft is now nice and clean, even dusted and vacuumed. Wow.
The loft is also the only place in the house where I have lots of pictures of the family, travel treasures, my dolls, sewing books, and silly things I love. Great little TV and good light.
I have a couple new blouses ready for the camera, but the leaves have kept me out of the yard. They got cleaned up today as well! Meanwhile, I finished my 'muslin' of the Rosemont Cardigan a couple days ago and have started blocking it.
Parting shots...it's a little fruity around here.
|The biggest coconuts I've ever had!|
|All the areca palms have seed spathes for the first time, they are about 8 years old. Very exciting!|
|This is a mahogany tree seed pod! They're very heavy and dangerous...|
|And they're beautiful. Pure wood, in beautiful deep tones.|
|Strawberry guavas...the anoles should be here soon! Meanwhile Ms. Squirrel eats hers green. Miss Piggy.|
|Speaking of Ms. Squirrel...in the front yard, going for dates from the Chinese fan palms (below - and nearly gone!)|
|These have been a great favorite with the doves, blackbirds, mockingbirds, and blue jays as well.|
Bye for now! Coco
You are very blessed! Enjoy! And thank God!ReplyDelete
Your loft is a wonderful place to be...so organized!!!ReplyDelete
By the way, thank you for taking and posting the pictures of the blood moon!!! They were stunning...the best I've seen.
And what a beautiful loft it is! I envy you your space that's for sure.ReplyDelete
What a great loft space-it helped me to visualize what I need to do in my new home. Love the outdoor shots of your private tropical jungle.ReplyDelete
Your loft and garden are both beautiful!ReplyDelete
What a wonderful space- both of them!ReplyDelete
Thank you Mom!!! I think my dress form's name is Lizzy! =)ReplyDelete
Lizzy it is!!Delete
Where did you purchase the dress form? I've been waiting one for a long time.ReplyDelete
Hi Kathy! I shopped around on the internet for the one I wanted, then price compared. Bought it at Overstock.com, with a coupon I found online as well, and free shipping. Great deal! It is a Dritz Twin-fit. So is my other one. Like them both! a link to the one I just bought, it is on sale today for even less than I paid :-)Delete
oops...I gave you the wrong link, this is the one I got, the base is different, metal instead of plastic. Sturdier.Delete
Thank you very much for the info.Delete
