There are two fabric shelves put up in the sewing room. They aren’t where they’re going to stay but I figured if I got two of them assembled, once the movers drop things off, I can start to put fabric on them. These two should hold about half of the cut fabric. The bolts will take up more shelves but I can get Chad or Nicole to help me put more shelves together. It’s easier with two people doing it.
I picked up most everything that was on the floor and put that stuff in the closet so the movers can put boxes on the floor and put the sewing machine tables, cutting board, ironing station, etc. where they will all go.
Boots is going to love the windows. The windowsills are 12″ deep and that’s what he’s used to – being able to sit in the windows and look out. One has a view of the street, which he’s probably never really seen before. The second window (shown below) looks into some pretty thick shrubs, which will be cleaned out and redone in the spring.
Two more windows, at the end of the room, look out into an area that’s nicely landscaped. I have a couple of bird feeders hanging in there so I can watch them while I sew and I’m sure Boots will enjoy that.
Then there’s the French doors that look out onto a patio. There are sheers over them, which let light/warmth in but I probably will not open them so he won’t see much through those. Vince’s room is right next to the sewing room and there are two big windows in there, like the windows in the sewing room.
For all six of those windows, I need to get some kind of pads to put in there so his claws don’t scratch up the wood. Any suggestions? I’m thinking I’ll get a piece of carpet and cut it to the size of the window sill, then get some of the strips for placing under rugs to keep them from slipping, put that under the carpet strips and see how that works.
I’ll probably also need to either pin those sheers in the windows up or maybe take them down completely to keep them from getting full of cat hair. I’m thinking I’ll get Command hooks, put them up way out of Boots’ reach, tie them back with a ribbon and hopefully that will work.
