I have been focusing on a few other aspects of my life rather than sewing. My room is 99% complete. I am still on the hunt for a small bookcase, and of course, I need to paint. This color is desert sand but is really seen as pink. Here are a few photos of my sewing room and retreat.
This is where you will find me many afternoons at 4pm.
I just completed the wardrobe in the corner-I found it on sale and assembled it this afternoon. It opens to store accessories and jewelry. It is a lovely piece of furniture and very solid.

The corner near the windows is my work area with a drafting table, sewing machine, and serger. This arrangement provides enough room to move around but the area is small enough that I don't lose things.
I am really happy in this room-I can see into the backyard and common areas; I can hear birds and coyotes; and it faces west for gorgeous sunsets.
I have made a few things besides that mess of a panty. Here is KS 2643:
I sewed a large through the hips as the sweater knit was very clingy, and this particular pattern seemed close fitting in the illustration. The scoop neckline is really nice, and the fit of the sleeves is good for me. Isn't that knit pretty? Further sewing is a Vogue blouse which I have muslined, and am waiting for fabric to arrive. I am also making a bathrobe, and that fabric is slowly making its way to me. Do you want a sneak peak at the fabric?

Finally, here is a photo of one of my past horses. His name was Jumpin' Jack Flash (JJ) and I do believe he and Nick share a spiritual connection. JJ is romping with Woodrow in horse heaven right now...they were good buddies.
Talk to you soon-I hope I have more sewing details to share with you.
