Moving On

Moving has been an experience and one that keeps on giving!  We sold our home, bought another and moved within a week.  Not only that, but the home we bought began being renovated the day after we moved in.

We're living with boxes and have to transfer one pile to work on an area. Repeat and repeat.  Despite the present living conditions, we are glad we made the move.  We both knew the time had come.  Life changes.  The good things to come are a new sewing room, a new kitchen, new appliances, paint, flooring.  All good things.

Our 60s California ranch home has a huge Florida room, which we are turning into a workshop for my husband, a sewing room for me, and a family room.  There is plenty of space for all of it.  Here's some "before" photos of that room.

Here, my husband is painting the insides of the cabinets in what will be my sewing room.  Those cabinets were here when we bought the house. Just for me.



This picture shows the view out the windows on the back of the room.

 
 
This is the other side of the room, where my husband's workshop will be.

 
 

There's a fireplace, too.  Nice for winter days to curl up with a good sewing book and think.



My sewing gear is packed away, waiting.  Meanwhile, I count my blessings, and know that I have a roof over my head, a nice bed to sleep in.  The rest will come all in good time.  And I have my computer, and can keep up with your creations.  Patience.

That is so exciting. What a wonderful sewing room coming your way!

Nancy K said...

Perfect! Nice that you'll be able to both work in the same room as well as have lounging space.
I love all the windows and modern space; just the kind of house I'd love.

MushyWear said...

Looks like a wonderful space! I'm jealous of your fireplace, LOL. I haven't needed one of those for 7 years now, but I used to love curling up in front of one. Great to hear things are moving along for you!

Oh that looks soooooo nice! I'm glad you are facing so many changes so easily (seemingly).

Lori said...

Gwen, great news on selling your house, moving into the new one. I love that room, you and your husband will all be set for lots of sewing and hobbies.

Jane M said...

Wow, that sewing room space and view are soooo worth the hassle. I am green with envy and so very happy for you. Looks like you have made a wonderful decision.

Carolyn (cmarie12) said...

Congrats on a successful move! Hopefully the reno will go quickly and uneventfully. Love, love, love the cabinets in your new sewing room.

Kyle said...

Love all that natural light!
I was painting too this weekend.

Sharon said...

So lovely to hear that you have sold/moved and sorting out your new sewing room which is just gorgeous.

Faye Lewis said...

Your new home is beautiful Gwen!

What a perfect space. Hope you get down to business there soon.

Bunny said...

The space is awesome with all that light and view. You are blessed with every sewist's dream - a hubby that is handy and has an equally consuming hobby! Doesn't get much better than that!

Diana said...

Congratulations Gwen. That room is amazing!!! Hope it doesn't take too long to get the house in shape for you!

Mary Beth said...

It's difficult (I know) to make such a move, so quickly and to have renos going on while you're living there but you have excellent attitude! Congrats on the great house you've bought. It's truly amazing!

Corinne said...

Now that is a busy week! When it is all sorted out that space should be amazing. Space, storage and light. What every sewist wants! Please keep us updated on the progress. Take care.

Ann said...

What a fabulous room to sew and do hobbies in. Love all those windows. Perfect natural light for when you are sewing. And the storage cupboards to keep things in. Perfect!!

Patty said...

Wow, that was fast! Your new sewing space looks great :-)

Claire S. said...

Wow - all done in a week ? Hope the reno goes smoothly. LOVE the room !

Rose said...

You home looks really nice! i am sure it is very tiring and inconvenient to be in the midst of renovations, but you sound OK wit it. Good luck and I wish you a fast and uneventful renovation!

Beth H said...

Congratulations on the fast move! Glad things are moving forward steadily. You'll be back sewing before you know it!

Irene said...

What wonderful windows! Once all gets settled you probably won't even remember all the inconveniences that you had to put up with.

Sheila said...

Congratulations on your new home. What an amazing florida room.

Perfect! Everything is following its path ... just have to wait for the time to retake the seam to keep enjoying your wonderful creations. Have a wonderful week, dear friend!

Moving is definitely difficult!

Connie said...

Hi Gwen, I just found your blog and I love your new home. That room is going to be wonderful. All those windows, it doesn't get better than that. It is going to be a marvelous place to work and be inspired.
I've been looking at some of your posts and I want to try my hand at making a cellphone bag like the one you made. You inspire me.
I am your newest follower. I too am a retired 60+, enjoying life and new to blogging, but amazed at the creative adventure blogging has brought to my life. I do hope that you will visit my blog and follow me back.
Have a lovely week and have fun with your new home.
Your new blogging sister, Connie :)
