WIPs of a couple of kind

I took all your advice and started to work on the project with the least amount to do which is not necessarily the WIP closest to completion if you know what I mean. I picked up an old friend and stitched away on this goodie. My old friend, Em Broiderery, is the stitching I started with way back in high school.

A Basket of Blooms, purchased at the Longaberger Homestead

This may have only been about 10% complete but it is working up very quickly. I plan to make this into a pillow once completed. I don't know how much stitching time I will be able to get in this by day, prime and paint by rest for the weary.

Now for the before pix of my teeny tiny laundry room.......not much to look at here and not much that we have done to it since we moved in umpteen years ago.

My old faithfuls that I hate to part with....but lacking space, I have made a concession for new stacking units.  (Sorry folks - sometimes I can get the pix right where I want them and other times.....well they have a mind of their own.)

What's this? an unassuming closet outside the laundry room? Look what lurks inside...
This closet was closed off on the DR side and opened up into the laundry room side.

How did all this STUFF come out of that teeny tiny room and closet????

 The room used to end just to the right of the breaker box.  I now have 28 inches to the right of it.  
Pix don't show how much larger it feels with the closet incorporated into the laundry room.    More pix to be taken once I change into my painting clothes and get a move on....

Glad you are finally getting some extra space in the laundry room...that's the next room on our list; I'm tired of my hiney bumping the wall when I bend over to get the clothes out of the dryer, LOL!

Can't wait to see your's looking lovely so far.
