Here's where I work, at a nice old pine farmhouse table. We bought this from an antiques shop in Chard (Somerset) and brought it back strapped to the roof of the car. That drew some amused looks, I can tell you. It's very practical and I have a long bench bought from the same shop on which I sit and it's very handy as I can whizz along from my sewing machine at one end to my laptop at the other (I'm usually attached to one or the other).
From here, I can gaze lovingly at my stash in the corner:
I don't spend much time fiddling with these, honestly.
My shrine to Cath K fabrics resides here too. It was just one pile..
But now it's on top of Kaffe Fassett, too!
Hmm, don't you just love a bit of gingham or polka dots mixed in?
I have another little drawer unit filled with sewing notions which resides in this corner with my cutting mat and "things".
I get deep satisfaction looking in this drawer...
This is my "inspiration wall", (err, it's where I stick all the cards my sister sends me and the copious artwork the Munchkin churns out along with printouts of things which catch my eye on the 'net etc).
This chair I bought from an antiques shop years ago (which has shut down now) and is adorned with a crochet blanket my nan made for me when I first went to uni, some knitted toys my mum got me from the car boot (I love them and have started a bit of a collection recently) and Golly, whom I bought when I was little from a jumble sale. That 10p made me very happy and mum recently dug him out from the loft at home. It's a cosy spot for a bit of hand sewing and as it rocks, the cats keep off as they find it scary when they jump on and it wobbles back and forth!
I made the Union Jack cushion this week.
The cupboard houses wrapping paper, ribbons and cards and any birthday/christmas presents I might be stockpiling (for other people, I mean). The Munchkin is strangely drawn to this area!
I've been doing lots of sewing recently, which I'll post about next week having taken piccies of them in their new home at the cottage (and when I've finished the hand sewing on the train this evening). Here's a sneak peek...
We're off to the West Country as tomorrow, we are going to an open day at River Cottage, hurrah! The Munchkin is very excited at the prospect of meeting "the real River Cottage man"! Given the weather forecast, we'd better pack the wellies. More of that adventure next week.
Have a fabby weekend, everyone. I've loved finding loads of new blogs this week and making and receiving lots of comments. Thanks so much, it cheers me up no end!
