Not too much sewing going around here. I finally have my things washed and packed away from the cruise, so now I am reassessing my sewing area. I'll post pictures later, but my sewing room, while in the basement, has lots of natural light in the form of a large double window and french doors out to a patio. The hallway to get to this room, however, is another thing entirely. The ceiling has masses of ugly black pipes and electrical wiring exposed, but is too low for a wallboard ceiling. The floor is horrible old linoleum tile, and the walls are painted a dirty yellow. It's way past time for a complete overhaul! So yesterday I bought some very pale blue paint (almost white) and I'm painting the ceiling, pipes and all. Then the walls, then a new floor. You can imagine what a mess I've made. Drip, drip, drip, down my arms, onto my face. Plus all that bending over backwards while perched on a stepladder doesn't do my bad back any favors. So I'm getting about two square feet done at a time...but so what, I'm retired and can do it at my own pace.
