I hope you’re not reading this post in the expectation that you will see a host of lovely bright pictures of a beautifully laid out sewing room. I am very fortunate, our house has enough rooms to allow me to have a dedicated room for my sewing and crafting supplies and machinery, however I have been completely abusing this privileged and it looks somewhat like a tip. I could hardly get in the door.
Here is a picture of my main work table/cutting mat…..seriously, it’s in there somewhere…..
I’m too embarrassed to take any pictures of the other half of the room!
I am in need of a bit of a re-focus on the work front so I decided, rather than just diving into something new, that I would start with a tidy ‘desk’ in the hope that it will provide me with a tidy mind too.
This is how my work table looked after 2 hours of sorting through things (yes, 2 hours!).
It was a sheer pleasure to walk into the room to see such a clear desk.
My plan is to tackle the other half of the room (and the walls in between) over the next week. Wish me lots of luck, I’m going to need it!
How about you, what’s your work space like? Are you neat and tidy and pack things away as you go or do you manage to create a grotty mess like I do?
