I don't know about you but my stash, equipment and notations are taking over the house. Now that was sort of okay as a single girl living on her own but now I have to think about Ian and as we only have two bedrooms I need to get uber organised. I've been following this blog with interest as it highlights lots of varied sewing spaces http://thebluegardenia.typepad.com/ and had a nosey via this link http://younge.com/sewing%20rooms.htm. As the room will have a duel purpose we went to Ikea on Sunday to look at shelving/storage etc etc. Ian had had enough after 40 mins and I can't say it's my favorite place in the world but I did a bit of homework before hand so knew roughly what I wanted and Ian acted as my muscles for the afternoon. I bought shelving from the expedit range in birch and a desk which has a pullout section which will be great to house the overlocker. I really wanted white, but everything looked a bit "yellow" and worried this may happen at home after a few months so that's why I went with the birch colour.
|I'll be putting casters on this one so I can wheel it out of the way when guest come|
Anyway, pictures to follow when done. In the meantime I haven't forgotten about the strapless top with built-in corset. I'll be working on it next week and will post the instructions as I go.
Oh, and Betty's back home all shiny and working, not that I've had much of an opportunity to use her much as yet.
Have a good week all, enjoy your sewing and think of me as I paint and build up flat packs!
