I really love seeing other people's sewing machines and sewing rooms. Maybe it's just because I'm nosy but I do like to see how other people set up their sewing spaces. With the lack of sewing happening at the moment my sewing room is reasonably neat and tidy so I thought it's a good time for a tour of my little piece of the home.
I'm lucky enough to be married to a lovely man who is also a lovely builder, so he has built me a dedicated sewing room just off the main house that is all mine, mine, mine. (No kids allowed!).
The window looks out onto the back yard so I can sew and keep an eye on the kids at the same time. Mum gave me the sewing desk which is fantastic. I have a Mum and 2 Mum-in-laws who all sew so I've been given a LOT of sewing stuff over the years (yay! for being given sewing stuff!)
Here is the stash (but there's always room for more, lol)
and a bit more here as well:
A bookcase groans under the weight of all my craft books, Burda magazines and patterns, threads and other bits and bobs:
And, most importantly, the machines - both oldies but goodies and both gifted to me by lovely people :)
So that's it - my slice of paradise. I do have another craft book to add to the bookshelf which I will review in my next post 'Twinkle Sews'.
