my little room



One of my favourite things about this new apartment is the fact that I have my own little room, which is my sewing room. It's a tiny thing, about six feet by five, and I am happy to have this hobby -- the room (really an anteroom) may have been fated to be a storage space otherwise.




It's a work in progress, I suppose, but last night I finally got everything tucked away. I think the close-to-the-end result is something that is very me: a little cluttered, an organized mess, with lots of things to see, and, obviously, a lot of lacey bits!  And a lot of bits in general.  As anyone who sews knows, you accumulate a lot of little things.  I'm pretty amazed at how many sewing notions I've accumulated in a year and a half (ahh, so that's where all my money has gone).






Oreo likes in it there, too.

If you're interested in the details, I've written them out on Flickr.

  8. You've done such a fantastic job with it. All the stuff just makes me want to come and explore! Sometimes I think smaller rooms are nicer, they're more cosy.

    you obviously have a talent for pretty and creative organisation. i envy you having your own little space. my 'studio/office' is the former dining room but the doors disappeared many tenants ago. the kids are forever trying to run away with the scissors or 'adjust' the serger settings.
