Another week and another Wednesday and lots more creative spaces exposed for the world to snoop round so do pop over to Julia's when you've left me a little comment and join in the fun.
Last week was manic here and thankfully this week is a little more organised but it does include.....wait for it.....curtains for me [and you all know what I think of curtains don't you!]......my arms ache and Jo and I have had to work as a team [be it a very good one] to do these cos they are double width with a large repeat of pattern to match so 2 pair of arms have been needed at times.
I managed to clear the sewing mountain last week with a 'head down and keep sewing' few days but as one lot gets cleared the next lot arrives and every week I have many new customers finding their way to my door.....I'm now up to 1151 customers! You really wouldn't think I would have so many customers living in such a rural village but I guess not many people can sew these days.....I even get asked to sew buttons on!
So here are a couple of snaps of my room for you this week...
Said curtains overflowing my ironing board.
I thought some of you might like to see where I work. Here you can see my overlocker on the right, my industrial machine in the middle and my computerised machine on the left. I love sitting here to sew because this is a south facing window so it gets all the sunshine through the day and I can see all the comings and goings when I'm not head down sewing.
This is a swing to the left picture of my work station in the arch of the old fireplace. As you can see it does become a bit of a dumping ground at the back and underneath but this is my blind hemmer on the top [that's the machine that puts that magic stitch in hems that little boys sit pulling a loose thread in school assembly and undo their hems!....happy memories eh?]. Under wraps on the floor is my dumfing machine [note to self...need to find some free time to have a play!].
This is what you get when you let your 'much older' sister loose on your cutting out scissors :-)
She was only cutting the curtains for me at the end of the day!
....I can't imagine why they make scissors with a plastic hinge screw but they are going back to where I bought them from.
These are two gorgeous little cover ups for the twins that Jo made for me on Funday Monday so, of course, she is forgiven for breaking my scissors :-)
Aren't they pretty?
Well folks, that's it from me for today. I shall be head down making curtains today....groannnnnnnn
I really do hope you all have something fun and creative to fill your day and hopefully the curtains will be soon done and I can move on to more fun things too. :-)
Thanks for dropping in on me and leaving me such lovely comments.
