Blogtober 4th: My Space

Picture 3174

The carpet cleaners are coming tomorrow.  Which meant that today I had to clean house, which in turn meant that I cleaned my sewing desk, which in turn meant it was able to be photographed to share with you. Which in turn meant

So, here I present to you my sewing space. People who know me, try not to laugh too loud at how tidy this is, okay! To people who don’t know me, I will admit to a small amount of stashing of a mending pile in the cupboard, as well as the cleaning.

Since I was getting organised, I thought it was time to reorganise the yarn basket too – it’s an intentional overflow of the stash, and in fact all of this *would* fit in the boxes too, and in fact was in there until earlier today 🙂

And the yarn stash is in here…

I have to share space in the room with the second TV – useful when DS wants to watch something lame like ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos’ or a much replayed episode of The Simpsons. But I do have room for two big bookcases that reach nearly to the ceiling.

My fabric stash is mostly in the cupboard, but I do have a wee overflow under our bed.  It feels like ages since I’ve sewed, I need to get my mojo back so I can cut the stash down a bit.

For now, the room is scarily tidy,  I love it, but wonder how long it will stay that way. Can hardly wait for clean carpet though! The tidying will have been worth it!

    *snort* (trying not to laugh) It does look lovely. Do like the yarn candy basket. You have at least 3x as much yarn as me… though you knit about 3x faster, so we must be about even LOL

    Loving Blogtober 🙂

    Love the space…my sewing space has been moved to my dining table as clutter and suitcases have taken over our spare room *sigh*
