what i've been up to

due to my brother in law moving in and stealing my beloved sewing room I have had to move into a new space, it used to be the store room and I wish I had of taken a before photo, it was scary. my new sewing room/study area/office is nearly complete, I was planning on painting the shelves white but I've decided I like the raw look of the timber, plus who has time to paint all those shelves, not me thats for sure.

I'm actually quite happy here in my new space, the old one was much 'nicer' but this one has alot more shelving space, I love to see my fabric stash all stacked up nice and neatly.


Sadly I am not getting any sewing done at the moment, and am not able to take on any orders for a couple of weeks yet due to a heavy uni work load and me not grasping algebra (see below), it's depressing me.



the study area where I am spending most of my time lately


this algebra stuff is really getting to me, I am spending way too much time on it and am waiting for the light bulb to click. Maths has never been my forte but I have to do this so I can do my Home Ec teaching degree, I really really want it, so am NOT giving up!


a little herb garden, I thought it was about time I got my herbs growing again, I really hate spending money on herbs when you never use the whole bunch, so far so good.

a photo wall I have been planning on doing for a very long time, i needed some time out to be creative, feels good to finally have it done.

you're a real trooper for giving up your sewing space - the new space looks great though.

I'm in awe of all the things you do! If I had a busy, successful sewing business I don't think I would be going back to uni! always hated maths at school too - so don't envy you all that algebra work! good luck with it!

herb garden and photo wall - two things that are on my "to do" list as well :)
