I've been wanting to use those words since we moved into this house nearly two years ago, but finally last night I had a permanent place to keep my sewing machine. (Mr C – if you're reading I'm claiming squatters rights now so if you want the space back then tough!)
This cabin at the bottom of the garden was where the previous owner of the house used to teach music therapy to autistic children. When we looked round I instantly knew what I wanted to use the space for, but once we moved in other jobs took priority and then Little Miss C came along and it went to the bottom of the to do list.
Finally I decided that enough was enough and off I went with a dustpan and brush and some soapy water and just an hour later I was up and running. In less than 24 hours I have already manage to finish the dress I was making for Jemima (she's going to be a first birthday present for LMC – so photos will come soon) and also mend a pair of pyjama bottoms that have had a hole in them for months.
Things aren't perfect though…
There's still a lot of work to do and homes to find for things, but I'll get there. I've got great plans for this new studio space of mine, but as with most things it will take some time to get there.
I'm hoping that this new crafty home will bring me back some of my craft-mojo that has been awol of late. When the mojo goes the blogging also drops off, mainly as I have very little to blog about. However, I did have a lovely visit from the Fairy Hobmother (aka Ian) from Appliances Online. It was a complete pleasure to start off my Friday with something like this as no one normally gives me gifts for no real reason, and Ian has offered to visit one of my readers too. All you have to do is leave a comment in response to this post and cross your fingers and you never know you too may soon receive a visit from the Fairy Hobmother!
