......ugh......

I know it's going to be worth it.....

.....I know I'll soon have my 'conservatory' (and access to my fabric!) back....




.....I know that Monster will soon have his own room back to make a mess in.....




.....I know that my recently renovated bedroom won't look like this for long.....




......I know that we won't have to keep moving furniture from room to room for ever.....



......I know that this will soon be bright white with more than a spattering of pink.....



......and that this will soon be bright white with more than a spattering of Lego......



......but it still makes me feel like screaming 'I'd rather be sewing.....get me out of here!!'

Right now I feel like this house is trying to swallow me up!

I'm just so very grateful for the uncharacteristic attack of foresight
that led me to get most of my craft stall sewing done two weeks ago!!

For now, I just need to do this:


because it WILL be worth it, won't it?

Yes it will be worth it, I have just got back in my tiny sewing room after my daughter moved into her own place. We had stuff everywhere sadly I still have to share my space with a huge wardrobe. Now where can I put hubby's clothes ....mmmmm.....

Keep calm and carry on??? I'd scream and stamp my feet!

You know, if you are getting cold now that the nights are a bit dank blankets would be so much more comfortable than those drawers.

Julie said...

Repeat after me....It will be worth it, It will be worth it.... I hope you've soon got everything back to normal. :)

Oh it IS worth it - we went through this a few weeks ago. It's such a grim feeling - the upheaval, the dust, the mess, the boxes. Drink tea, lots of tea and have mags and comfort food nearby. Over soon!

Hey, looks like my house, but without the prospect of new rooms at the end of it!

Thimbleanna said...

Yes, it WILL be worth it! And think how happy you'll be when you can post pictures of your pretty new rooms!

Renovation projects always seem to be a blessing and a curse...curse first!

Have you seen the version of that poster that says something like
"freak out and start screaming"?
gave me a chuckle :)

I'm going through the same thing here.... Isn't it fun moving from room to room. Haven't started the master bedroom yet... icks. I have that to look forward too.

At least, I'm getting my washer/dryer back today...yipeee.

"Now panic and freak out" - I saw a mug with that on it a few days ago.

Hello! Not sewing tonight for a change so am on the computer catching up with favorite blogs. Whoo - I wouldn't be calm myself if my house were in a sort of limbo state. Although it IS sort of in limbo state every day, with a mess that never permanently gets cleaned up. I hope you get your good house (and sewing room) back soon. Hang in there!

est said...

Kitty said...

It will be worth it! This is the worse bit - looking like a bomb's gone off. Can't wait to see the pictures of the finished rooms :-D x

Hide in the bathroom with wine and a good book!x

marit said...

It WILL be worth it! We lived in a mess like that for five years,with four children...bought an old house that needed remodeling, did one room at a time-lots and lots of work, but it looked good when we were done!

Fancy Elastic said...

Yes... and annoyingly you will forget entirely all of the stress you endured really quickly!

hang on in there!

julie said...

It'll definitely be worth it - keep on chanting the mantra and you'll get through the upheaval, soon I hope x

Charlie P said...

It WILL be worth it...and just think of all the crafting opportunities redecorating will bring! Quilts? Cushions?
Or you could just shut your eyes, put your fingers in your ears and hum until it's all over :-)

beck said...

You poor darling. I feel for you. But yes, hang in there, it will be worth it!!! Already you have a lot done and I bet it won't be too much longer and it will all be finished. Good luck xo

monda-loves said...

it will be worth it - good thing you took some pics to document it all too - I always forget that bit. You can feel so smug when it is done, and you have the before and after pics to show us.

Suzie Sews said...

How is it going... nearly there or still a mile to go... thinking of you...

Renovations can be so much fun - when we did our bathrooms up I had to endure my 20 year old son stumbling past the foot of my bed using our en suite at 2am after a night out with the boys - those sounds will stay with me for ever.
