Maybe you're like me and just can't help yourself. Maybe you MUST look when you see a train wreck in progress. If you're that person then this is the blog post for you!
Yep, here it is in all it's horrible glory, my sewing room. It's a sewing space really and I truly love it. This space is at the top of the house in a converted attic. Really one large room with many different functions. To the left of this picture is my husband's exercise equipment which he uses every day as well as a sofa/convertible bed for extra sleeping when the family are here and a children's play space complete with small slide and toy box.
I've claimed the space with the windows for my sewing area and even on cloudy days I have lots of wonderful light.
But, I'm sure you can tell from these pictures that things have gotten out of hand! It is messier than usual because we've already started tearing things down in preparation for an overhaul, but still!!
I moved into this space about 12 years ago and haven't changed a thing since. I need to make some adjustments although I think the sewing machines are in the right spots for me I just don't have enough storage and I can't find fabric when I need it without an all day hunt. There is NO wall space due to the slope of the ceiling and I'm reluctant to give up my wonderful, big design wall which I use constantly.
There is one small closet where I currently keep fabric but it just isn't working for me any more.
I think you can see why! There's a sloped ceiling in this closet so that's why things can't go higher.
Now you've seen my horror and my shame. I've nothing left to hide. I have a plan and I've made a complete mess in which absolutely no creating can take place until things are cleaned up and sorted. You'll just have to stay tuned and see what I come up with to tame this disaster.
Until next time,
