The Craftroom Takeover

Before Christmas the craft room had become a bit of a mess then when my sister in moved I wanted her to have her own space. Something had to give so that Bob could have a room of her own so the craft room quickly doubled up as my walk in wardrobe. I had to rejig the room and buy an extra set of drawers, I needed somewhere to hang my clothes but didn't want to buy a wardrobe as the room is pretty small, then Craig from the fab Used Unique Boutique suggested trying a ceiling support pole. It works on a tension system and I used it horizontally to create my makeshift wardrobe, it worked a treat. I also used some chains to hang skirts and shirts and suitcases to store shoes. My sewing table is a drop leaf table so it folds away when not in use for extra's the new look

Hope you're all having a great week! xx

Sunday Sewing

It feels like ages since I've sat down at my sewing machine and spent the afternoon sewing. It's a mixture of having a new routine, I'm enjoying chilling out at the minute and recharging my batteries plus the small matter of the craft room being upside turned upside down. The time was right on Sunday and Miss Jones came out of hibernation of an afternoon of blissful sewing, together we made a colourful cushion, I've missed the old girl....

I've listed our cushion in my Etsy shop here

Here's to having the time for lots more sewing!

Have a great week everyone! xx
