This weekend I mentioned I wanted to search out the source of smells in my sewing room. Velvet lives up there and can do what he wants... So Tetsu and I went upstairs to move around some furniture and I scurried around pushing fabric into drawers and putting away scissors and roller cutters.
"Do you need this bed in here?"
No, not really.
"Okay, just leave it to me. I'll move the bed out and get the place back in order."
I did help Tetsu move the bed and I directed him as to where the sewing machine needed to be in relation to the cutting table. Then I left him to putter and clean. And here is the result of a couple hours of Tetsu's hard work.
This is my sewing room. It used to be Leiya's room. Velvet lives in the bay window. Hmmm. I could have moved the cat box before I took the picture. Toi was visiting when I snapped this but usually Velvet enjoys this space alone. With the bed gone I've got more room to spread out quilts I think.
And this is what was my laundry room and before that it used to be Takumi's room. Now doesn't that look pleasant. Tetsu put up books to decorate the bed stand and my 365 Challenge quilt finally gets a debut on the bed! Besides all that work Tetsu folded clothes in drawers, and tidied the bookshelves and vacuumed and dusted.
You must wonder what I do all day when I have a husband who does housework for me. Well, he doesn't do it ALL the time. Just when the mood hits him. In the afternoon he went off to play pachinko (Japanese pinball) by himself and I certainly didn't begrudge him his time of play!
Now, it my job to keep the rooms looking nice.
