Finally! A Little Crafty Corner
It's so cute! And it didn't cost anything! I thought I would never find the place to set up my own little craft corner of the world, even if I did find the right desk & layout. I'm on a little cloud just happily sitting here on this CLEAN, quaint desktop gazing out the (rain-filled, grey, blustery) window.
The sewing machine was a 14 or 16th birthday present; the books are borrowed from the library (I'm back to the addiction), my laptop, my mother's bulletin board from when she was a child, a hand-me-down desk chair from my childhood and curtains that came with the house (though I hope to either switch them out or maybe use them to practice embroidery before doing the living room?).
I'm so excited to have a place dedicated to sewing and crafting. Though, I don't need a place to work when I'm knitting or crocheting (because I do most of it on the couch watching TV, in the car on road-trips, or in waiting rooms), I definitely need one for sewing.
My mending pile has gotten quite high due to my lack of motivation to set up the sewing machine for only one patch that needs sewing or a broken hem line. Now I have no excuse! Plus, I can now start diving into my next goal - sew my own wardrobe! Obviously that'll take some time, I know, but I've gotten some books out from the library to help me along. :)
And when I'm not sewing, I'll have to try out some of these free vintage patterns. I love seeing all the hairstyles & clothing.
