Here’s all I can show you right now because the rest is such a shocking mess!! This Brother industrial sewing plain sewing machine is what I do most of my sewing on. I have a domestic machine for buttonhones or three step zig zag stitch (but its been a while since I’ve used it for knits). I have a domestic overlocker which I think I need a new cord for – the wires are definately loose.
I keep stuff that inspires me in there – vintage, stuff, Kiwiana, artwork like this one. There is a theme, in that I use kitchen storage items to store sewing stuff.
Ikea book shelves hold books – so many books, Art Deco Jars, Cake Stands, a Champagne bucket for the scissors, cake tins for yet more junk, and jam jars for buttons! Ironic as I don’t really care for cooking!! Although I am trying!!
There is fabric, boxes for my eBay shop, “stock” for said shop – or “junk” as my husband calls it. The bookcase is piled high.
The patterns are mostly really organized – in Ikea boxes – organized into decades.
The ironing board is piled high with ironing and new op shop finds usually! Although I have been cutting back a bit on that lately.
I pray my parents arent planning a visit anytime soon – even though I am missing them and Mum recently had a cataract operation.
It’s lovely to have a nice garden to look out at, and its good to change your focal length to keep your eye muscles working ( great for computer users too).
Essentials are music and my portable DVD player – which I can watch movies on (or mostly listen to). And most important for any time spent in the sewing room – a big mug of coffee – and a handful of biscuits too!!
We are in the middle of school holidays now – I will be posting again afterwards with some of our holiday snaps!
