OH! I Forgot to Show You---

In my last post about my sewing room, I forgot to tell you about one of the things that Bill did that I like the very BEST. It is my new design wall! It used to be a Warm and White batting tacked to the wall. It was a real problem if I needed to pin something. He saw Linda Jenkins' new design wall when we visited them this summer so we copied hers. He covered 2 big pieces of wallboard with batting and mounted them to the wall. Now I just pin into wallboard which is SO much easier! It's also great for picture taking. It measures about 7' x 7 1/2'. I LOVE it!!

Blessings~

Nice Glenna. I don't have a wall in my sewing room to dedicate to that. I'm thinking I need something like a screen on hinges sorta like that. Then I can take it up and down. Maybe that is something to ask for Mother's Day or my birthday. Nice job Bill.

Can't wait to see what you add to the design wall!!!

Lovely idea. I've been using a springless (space) mattress propped against the wall.

I love my design wall. That was the first thing that had to go up in my room when we moved here.
