Friday's post

Hello, first a big thank you for your comments and kind words on my last post.
I feel very honored by them all, thanks!
Friday it just me or does time flies!! I had today off from work and went shopping. And a trip to the post office to send of two parcels.

giveaway gifts

And of course I couldn't go home without fresh flowers for the weekend. I love tulips. Maybe not the perfect flower to have in a warm central heated house, but I enjoy them while they last.

Friday's fresh flowers

I also had to buy some magazines.

lovely reading

I can browse for hours in these magazines. look, I even found my perfect cooker.

Hi Corry
It's a good feeling to cut your cutting table cleared off isn't it? I'm going to do the same thing. My sister is comin gto visit so Iknow I won't be doing any sewing for the next couple of days so it will stay clean.
Happy weekend to you too!

Oh How lovely, Corry! You big clean-up is an inspiration! How lovely it all looks...
You have just given me the kick I needed to get mine done!
Happy creating!

Hi! My name is erica. Would you be my friend? said...

It looks great Corry! Just remember to put each little thing away as soon as you're done with it, and the tidiness should last about 2 weeks! :D lol

I think I may follow your lead and go sit and look at some magazines...

Julie said...

I know what you mean time just go's by so fast anymore. Love the pictures and your room looks very clean. Don't you just love Ikea!

Beth said...

Hi! I just discovered your blog today and I think I'm going to love it! I saw the British Country Living magazine poking out of your pile of favorite magazines. I just found that magazine this year and I'm addicted to it. I like everything about its depiction of rural English living, even though I am an American urban dweller. I'm saving up to subscribe.

Dat ziet er weer super netjes uit zeg! Daar kan je weer lekker in freubelen niet dan?
Ben ook wel een beetje jaloers op je mooie tulpen. Denk dat ik ze hier nog niet kan krijgen of dat ze nog echt veel te duur zijn. Geniet er van.
Fijn weekend
Groetjes Michaja

Super craft room Corry! I think it will stay that way, because you love to work in a tidy place. It looks so yummy... (she said with some envy in her voice..LOL!)

Tulips, love them all year! Especially white ones.

Gina said...

Love the pics from your sewing room.

I'm with you as I want that cooker aswell.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Your stacks of neatly folded fabric look so enticing there! And I love the images from the magazines. Thanks for sharing those!

You cutting table is very tidy now.

en nu denken wij natuurlijk dat jij de ordelijkste vrouw van holland bent ;)

Karin said...

Prachtig! Het ziet er allemaal weer spic en span uit hoor. Geeft meteen ook ruimte in je hoofd.... dat zal je, net als ik, ook in Flow hebben gelezen. Ja, ik vind Flow ook zo mooi. Zonder een letter te lezen kan je al gelukkig worden van hoe-mooi-Flow-gemaakt-is......

Hard gewerkt Corrie! Keurig opgeruimd, in mijn kamertje kan ik weer een polstok gebruiken :-(
en naast mij staan 3 stapels met oude boeken die niet meer in de kast passen...De beide tijdschriften liggen hier ook, ben er ook helemaal fan van. Een mens zou niet alleen een enorme studio moeten hebben met allerlei vintage ladenkasten (die van Ikea is trouwens ook leuk hoor!) maar ook nog eens 7 levens om te fröbelen, niet? O ja en een 8ste om lekker uit te rusten met die bladen!

What a pretty little post. Those tulips are beautiful.

An enjoyable post Corry!xx

carole ann said...

Love your sewing space, so neat and your photos are always wonderful. Someday my space will be that neat, not sure when.

sewkalico said...

I think your house photos look just as good as those in the magazine!!
We have a cooker like the one in the magazine, but ours is green...

Sew Create It - Jane said...

Looks fantastic!! Your version looks like it should be in a magazine!
