Sewing Studio … after pics

So I’ve had a few requests for the after pics …
Before you look can I just remind you that this wasn’t a massive tidy up, just enough to get some sort of order back!
I still have too many things;Β  fabric/books/paper/stationery etc etc but that isn’t going to change anytime soon! This is as good as it’s going to get for now:

The sparkly stuff now has it’s own box

My vintage Jones machine has gone to live at Em’s studio for the foreseeable future so I have a little bit more surface to fill.

image

My shelves are bursting but everything has its place and I know where to find it

image

My sewing desk is clear and my cutting space is visible – very exciting πŸ˜‰

image

The blackboard is even empty for a change .. though there is plenty of jobs to chalk down..

image

All my works in progress are bagged up and pinned so I don’t lose any bits (I had been looking for this peach ribbon since Moo’s birthday in May!)

image

Still a few corners to deal with but never mind … it’s a happy place once more.

This is some ‘after the hoover before the clear up’ pics:

So today I have found myself at the end of a run of projects and commissions … I have a couple of kiddy free hours and am contemplating having a sort out.Β  Not a huge sort out that means it needs to get worse before it gets better… one that clears a bit of desk space and clears my mind a little bit.

I tend to grab sewing time in-between Kids/Uni/Cleaning etc so it is too precious to allow tidying time aswell!

imageThe three amigos – Overlocker, Coverlock and Sewing Machine.Β  Next on my list is an invisible hemmerΒ  I just completed a dress commission that was crying out for one! (more on that after the dress has been worn!).

even my chalk labelling is rubbing off – might wait until I can sort through the drawers before I re-label them though – who knows what treasures are lurking in there!imageThis corner is mostly piled up with Moo’s fabric; lovely big spots from Nani Iro (fromΒ Miss Matatabi onΒ Etsy) and loads of bargain sparkly tulle and satins from Goldhawk road – for future tutus of course.

Wish me luck, maybe one day when I grow up I will have a tidy, organised workspace (or maybe I will just move somewhere bigger and fill that too!)
