In my last post I said that I would show you my sewing room.
Since I signed up for next weeks Perth Upmarket I have been living along side my sewing machine, my kids have joined me & my husband has brought me many cups of tea. It has become a place of madness – fabric scraps, cotton threads, pages of designs, & empty cups everywhere! Creativity at its best!
Well, not in the manner of the majority of bloggers with their shiny workrooms, I’m going to show you how it really is!
I always have a silent sigh to myself when bloggers post about their sewing spaces with all the neatly folded fabrics & polished surfaces . . . . that’s not a REAL sewing space . . . . this is a real sewing space!
(please note the large teddy for four year old to use as a pillow for afternoon naps . . . not sure why the scooter is there tho! )
Now I know you want to see a glamorous workroom, all designed to within an inch of its life – inspiring pages torn from arty magazines stuck artistically to beautifully covered pin boards, & elegant stacks of fabric arranged in colour coded piles, well I have news for you . . .
I’d like to see that too! I’d love to be that tidy person!
Whilst I like to get into a neatly made bed every night, I seem to work better in creative chaos!
Just & I emphasise ‘just’, sometimes my space can look like something from Real Living magazine . . . to be honest, its usually only gets a clear up just before Jemima, my Sew-Along partner comes over!.
But despite its’ seeming chaos it is a productive space & somewhere that I can loose myself into a world that makes me supremely happy.
I am very lucky to have such an large space to work in & spread out but it’s not something that you need to get creative. Check out Aneela Hooeys work space. She is an amazingly productive & creative lady & she works off her lounge room coffee table! Not sure I could cope with that but it just goes to show that all you need is enough space to park your machine & rest your tea cup!
. . . MARKET NEWS
Upmarket is a week away & for the first time ever I am going to be selling stuff that I have made myself other then just selling patterns . . . which, by the way I will be selling as well. I will be letting you have a sneek peek of what will be on offer everyday on my Facebook page this week so keep your eyes out & come early to the market as I have only made one of everything as I’m not really into mass production as there is always a new design to make!
