    Sewing room 'decor' :)

    Found this ad on Craigslist: http://milwaukee.craigslist.org/art/3911195107.html

    Personally, think "Sheila" needs a straw hat to be used as a 'shade'.

    I think "Sheila" would be right at home in a room full of vintage sewing machines!

    (BTW: This is not my ad.)

    Sheila is way to scary for me. No thank you.

    Sheila also needs a quilt wrap.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Love it. I don't know if the lighting is actually useful though.

    I am not sure I would like Sheila in my sewing room. I think the first few times I walked into my room, she would scare the crap out of me.

    my dogs would not shut up if they saw "Sheila" in my sewing room. I had a wrought iron cowboy "seen often as though leaning" in my sewing room for safe-keeping. A friend wanted to give it to her husband for a birthday surprise. I threw a sheet over it and my dogs almost attacked it.

    When I saw this posted on CL I just had to share it.

    I can see "Sheila" wearing a long summer gown, scarf tossed loosely around her neck, summer straw hat and sunglasses. Then for winter a different wardrobe.......

    She would fit right in at my household as I have a 3'+ tall rooster standing by my front door to greet visitors........... His name is Phred - originally he was named Fred as I didn't think I knew any "Fred's" but then I realized that was my sister's FIL's name - so I just changed the spelling. You know how it is when you get used to a name.....

    Hark back to the movie "Psycho". Went to the movie and came home to discover the house was unlocked! In a panic I ran around opening all the closet doors, etc. Hubbs was helping me when I saw him jump about a foot. He had found my "Sheila" in the closet, dressed, and standing at attention. After his heart slowed down, we had a good laugh!

    I kind of like her, but I think I'd through a quilt around her shoulders and use her for either jewelry or quilting tools on ribbon. Be careful of putting something flammable over a light!

    My wife uses the old vintage dress form to display her antique civil war clothing. Really is nice for the display

    It -is- quite neat! The light bulb in her head is to make up for the times, as I learn sewing, that no light bulb goes off in -my- head! ;-)
