So, after moving house 3 days ago I finally got around to sorting out the spare room today.
It has to multi-task as a guest bedroom, sewing room, music room and an occasional home office for me (
my boyfriend has claimed the desk downstairs so I want one too, in a nutshell). It took about an hour and a half, with breaks, and it turns out there was indeed a usable room, desk and sofa bed under all of those blankets! John’s guitars and amps are also stored just to the left of the door, along with my mannequin and some of our boxes full of general stuff that is important enough to not be demoted to the basement, but not essential enough that we’ll need it all the time.
I’m enjoying this room an awful lot <3
Look at how beautifully that sewing machine fits into the desk… I’m jealous of well-organized pretty work rooms. o.o
Today has been a super frustrating day at work.
Took a break to pour some of that into the sketchbook. I’m not allowed to actually break my monitor in half, at least it was a little cathartic to draw it.
Bonus construction selfie. Guys dig coveralls and safety glasses, right?
A few progression photos to show off the patio Fox and I have been working on for the past several months. Well, mostly Fox, but I helped where I could, mostly by way of measuring and leveling.
I thought he was pretty crazy to want to do ALL of this by hand, but darn if he didn’t do it - moved an entire back yard’s worth of dirt, then shoveled over ten thousand pounds of gravel on top, all with hand shovels and only occasional help from some friends.
We’re ready to put in the retaining wall now, then a layer of sand, then the pavers on top. When that’s done, we’re going to be building some raised flower beds along either side, a fire pit for the middle, and eventually a counter-height bar in front of the deck for entertaining.
It’s gonna be nice. :)

These are the friendliest office supplies I’ve ever ordered.
