For as long as i can remember, I have wanted a secretary desk with a fold down desktop surface. When I worked in an office job I would spend many a lunch hour in furniture shops ooh-ing and ahh-ing over desks that I could not afford.
This weeks inspirational post is going to be centred entirely around shutters. I purchased these little beauties recently and am deciding what to do with them.
I’ve finally finished the table runner. What a learning curve that was!! I really enjoyed embroidery though, there was something relaxing and gratifying about… almost like knitting, just completed much more quickly!
So it is a clear indication that my sewing-mojo is returning when I have the urge to sew and create something “off pattern”.
Life round here has been pretty slow…. Things at work have quietened down, and I have been sick ever since! Boo! However, it has been a nice time to get some reading done and make a dent in my many knitting projects currently on the go. Here’s what’s captured my attention this week.
Love this idea (source)
Life can get preeetttyyy crazy round these parts, and it’s safe to say that I am NOT a morning person. So i’ve developed certain tricks to help make things roll smoothly before the coffee kicks in… One such trick is to have my outfit for the day all picked out so I just put it on after my shower…. No hard decisions necessary.
The whole pre-choosing my outfit thing was working out swimmingly so I decided to create a pretty hook / hanger to make it a pretty and functional endeavour.
I decided to make a hanger out of one of the doorknobs left over from Mum’s birthday present.
This is the current state of my living room/crafting area…. ugh costuming! Poor Hubster’s doing a fantastic job putting up with it all! Thankfully by this time next week it will all be over and life can resume to normal crafty business!!!
Here are the things I have been dreaming of while sewing costumes.
