Some very lucky and well organised folk have lovely, light filled perfectly proportioned sewing spaces within which they can hone their creativity. Hmmm, yeah well that aint me. I have a corner into which I kinda fit though mostly I end up doing layouts, cutting and so on in the lounge, dining room and office. Yep. Its driving me crazy.
This is my corner of the spare room and while I do have most of the double wardrobe there, the space I have to sew in is pretty small and its not very well lit particularly at night. There’s a window by the ironing board but the sill is low so I can’t put the desk there cos stuff falls off the back if I do – I’ve tried. The desk was perfect when I had only my one sewing machine but now I have serger and coverstitch machines too and I am constantly swapping between them and mucking about with cables and peddles. Grrrrrr.
Righto, so there is definitely a new desk in my future and the plan is to banish the bed, rearrange everything and setup new more directional lighting. This will free up a bunch of wall space too so when I figure out how to take a vaguely OK picture I can do so in my sewing room when required.
Now, for finding the perfect desk ……
