It feels like I've been gone from the Blog forever, but it's only been a little over a week. Our house has indeed been transformed, from dingy-dirty ancient (I'm exaggerating, of course.. ha) 20 plus year-old carpet to brand new antique white beautiful "clean" carpet that I absolutely love. It was worth waiting for and since I've had a few days to rest.... it was worth the effort.

We packed up the living room and the teddy bear room, and stored most of my stuff in the garage.

Then we ripped out all the old carpet and pad and put that in the garage.

And here's my empty teddy bear room, except for the desk which was taken out the day of the installation.

After all was said and done and all my stuff moved back into the house, viola... here is my newly rearranged and transformed teddy bear room! This is my worktable.

To the left of the worktable is my sewing table and computer desk.

These are shelves where lots of "stuff" lives... important stuff.

And these are the teddies I've made who are waiting for their assignments.

And one of the most exciting parts of this whole operation is my new couch/bed/storage unit.

It folds down into a double bed.... and.....

...pops up to a most incredibly wonderful storage area where I can keep all of my teddy fur and material scraps!

And with all of that, I feel very done with house projects for a while... a good while. In addition to the carpet, we also put new laminate in our kitchen and dining area about a month prior to this project. Needless to say, I'm tired, I'm old and I just want to sit and make teddies for a while. And that is what I intend to do.

Thanks for dropping by. Love and Hugs from Vicki and the Bears!
