My new space and why I haven't been sewing.

Over the past few days, I have convinced hubby to let me move all my sewing gear upstairs into the study.....(He really doesn't know what he is getting into!)  Mr T is also having his little space  (can I emphasise LITTLE .) for when he heads back to study part time in September.  Luckily we have a different work schedule so we won't be sewing and studying at the same time.

So a 3 hour trip to IKEA and a few disagreements later,  a good few boxes arrived last weekend and yes over the week Mr T put them together.  A desk and lots and lots of bookcases and cupboards to tuck my hoard of fabric away safely.

  I'm not going to have lots of glorious space as others, but I really wanted to get my sewing things organised and not have bits and pieces in the kitchen, lounge, and every nook and cranny around the house.
Last Saturday was spent painting the room ( a last minute decision) so I was hoping that during the week I would move in and have it all sparkling and organised to show.  I was also excited to have my kitchen table and bench back.

Alas it is Saturday again and things are looking so messy up in the spare room that I can't even bare to even take a photo for you to show.

Thanks to the trusty Lyons tea I have made a brew and this is what I will be tackling this morning before I head to Dublin for a night out on the town.

So fingers crossed when Monday comes around I may have a new sewing space all organised. 
(the bubbly is in the fridge chilling already)

Enjoy your weekend and those of us that have a Bank Holiday....Enjoy Monday also!

  1. Brilliant idea. The painting may be a pain but it will be worth it. I have a sewing desk in our den and I use the pool table as my cutting table. It isn't a big space but it does mean that I can leave all my sewing things out and it is brilliant. Make sure that you show us a photo when you have it all spruced up. Di x

  10. Our little study contains a large craft table and shelf combo unit that the hubby and I share. It's big enough to slide the machine over so he can study when in school. I also have an old tv corner unit to store my fabric and crochet things. Then on the other side is the treadmill. :)
    It works well for us. So I imagine it will for you also. :)
