So? You've come here to see my desk? Well, as you know we are having building work and many of you will know that my little make-do sewing room, that I've been using in the last year since we have been here, will become part of our kitchen / dining room. My mojo has gone on holiday so I have been using my energy planning and designing my new sewing room.
I have snapped a few pics of all my clutter in it's glory to show you what I have to pack up and move so that a wall can be knocked through into the new extension. You really wouldn't believe how much I can fit in such a small space......
This is where I sit to sew using a 'push to one side' method to use the particular machine I'm needing at the time. The wall you are looking at with the window in it is the one that is to be removed!!
This a pic of what is right behind me when I sew....two crammed full wall cupboards, a hanging rail for customers items, a small table and lots of boxes and clutter!!
This is a 'bare all' set of pics of my three wall cupboards full of clutter
....and you thought I was such a tidy worker didn't you?....I just hide a lot behind cupboard doors. :-)
In the first pic you will see my new set of Ikea drawers well this is what I have sorted into the top 4 drawers......top one has the bobbins for two of my machines [.....there are more somewhere in a box for my other sewing machine!]
The next three drawers hold my sewing threads.....hmmm I do have rather a lot but, whether you believe it or not, there are times when I still don't have thread the right colour!!.....like Saturday when I wanted to shorten the sleeves on a jacket for me [isn't it always the way?].
I'm still running my sewing business but it really isn't easy when all around you is clutter and it's never easy to find what I need to do the job. So I've been planning and thought you might like to see the floor plan for my new room....
This is just a rough plan and of course there will be wall cupboards and shelves too. I intend my room to be a pretty, light, airy space for all my crafty friends to come to play with all my fabric and stash and machines to hand so I can create just when the mood takes me.....Oh I can't wait.
If you follow me on Pinterest you will see that I've been pinning lots of lovely ideas and hopefully at least some of them will take shape fairly soon :-)
I hope you have enjoyed your visit today and will leave me a little message to let me know you've called by so I can pay you a return visit.
