Today we're off to the workroom.
Looking relatively tidy, I remind you, because the pictures were taken when the photographer was still here! Please don't for one moment think it stays this way! Those table curtains hide a multitude of sins - bundles of mess!
At this end of the room I have my working areas and the window faces South East so it brings in the morning sunshine. The sewing box was made by my grandad for my granny and I treasure it every time I use it!The blue dotty table is where I'm sitting now, so you can picture it when we chat!
At the other end of the room there is a picture window which faces North East and there are huge cupboards to hide more stuff and nonsense!
We have had this little heart hanger for many years since our first home together so I am very fond of it.
These open shelves have lots of inspiration. The top shelf houses some of my favourite childrens' books - the ones not snaffled by the beautiful boy! Then there are my buttons and Iced Gem china.
and more books, lots of embroidery books and books about gardening, oh, and more buttons!
You've seen the new shelving. Already there is overflow onto the floor and into baskets. Oh dear.
On top of the shelves I have my knitting needles gathering dust. I really must find time for knitting again. Perhaps in the autumn. I was never greatly skilled but I did enjoy working with cosy yarns in beautiful colours.
Here are my jars of letters for in case I am ever lost for words! HAHA! Don't need these much then!
And I keep my vintage jelly moulds here too.
They are so useful for all sorts of awkward bits and bobs that need to be kept to hand!
A couple of W.I.P. s in a favourite sweetie box (sweeties long gone!)
And of course pretty tins mainly used for my embroidery silks separated by colour group. I like the little spool cards but I don't much like the plastic boxes. These are not so practical but worth the inconvenience for the prettiness methinks!
So, next time we're off to the kitschen for much needed tea and cake! Back soon. Hope you're all having a lovely week. I've had a bit of a stinker of a week really as it got off to a beastly start so I've enjoyed being here and pottering around with you. Thank-you so much for all your kind comments! t.xx
