my creative space

 So I have finally relocated to my creative space,
fed up with the mess I create around the house.
Plus unfinished floor boards are cold and up here I have carpet,
even if it is covered in thread, and boy is it covered!
Is it Turner Prize worthy?
I can hear the art critics talking about how the triangles lead the eye, 
and all that!!
 Now that I have my new machine,
and with the hope of selling my wares, 
I have purchased some fat quarters from 
(so much easier than trawling through the usual auction site)

 The colours are actually more vibrant.
My love for vintage fabrics has not waned.
I need the consistency of new whilst I hone my making skills.
Vintage fabrics can be unpredictable.
So I'm taking this slow, 
instead of my usual 
bull in the china shop attack!

My first ever buttonhole!!
The love for my spanky is growing...

Good luck in your own space, sometimes you really need that. I love carpet crafting, but i need to get away every so often and close the door!

I love your creative space. I did have a wee giggle at the stash underneath it. My desk is exactly the same plus I have baskets along side which I keep trying to beat into submission!!!

Hi Clare, love your creative space, you have some very lovely fabrics and belongings! Good luck with your new machine, I remember my first buttonhole, it took about 20 attempts and I have kept the piece of butchered fabric that I used as a reminder! :) Sarah

Such a nice space - and I know that the seamstress in the photo would be proud of you too :)

Moving upstairs for the winter, very sensible! Loving your new fabrics too. I agree with you Clare, a bit of old, a bit of new, get the best of both worlds as they both have their charms!

Mess? What mess? A house is not a home without thread, fabric scraps and a few pins strewn around. :)
