I'm sorting out my sewing space this week. I've realised it is best to have a dedicated space with everything set up and to hand if I'm going to keep on with my sewing. The dining room table is not ideal as everything needs to be packed away for meal times and I tend to be quite messy when I sew as I like to spread things out.
So I have taken action - I have gate crashed Mr H's man cave next door, which was in a previous life the play room and then Bell's room before we had the flood in August last year. I ordered a carpet square and had it over locked so if we have any more "water issues" it can be rolled up and things moved just encase the creek over flows again.
In recent months Mr H has put in a dart board, and it has become a dumping ground for toys and bikes etc. So I had a clean out, installed the bikes in the sheds, moved the dumped items to the op shop or into the newly cleared out separate storage area.
Presto! Sewing space. I have promised Mr H I will keep my bunting and "granny stuff" to my side. I've put my desk in front of the chimney breast, so come winter it should keep me warm. I get a lovely view of the garden too, so I can keep an eye of the boys while they play and I sew.
Sew school started last week, and I have a bit of catching up to do. So once the kids are in bed, I can pop next door and sew, sew sew!
Looking forward to showing you photos of the finished room when I'm done!
