It’s been a hectic week! A bit overwhelming too…. with trying to sort the unpacked boxes and find places for things in our small apartment. I haven’t been feeling flash, and then poor hubby was not well either with a migraine (he hasn’t had one for years, he must have caught it from me!). But I have seen some progress… I won’t show you the before photo of my sewing corner, and I won’t show you the rest of the room, lol! But you can see the “in progress” photo!
See those colorful little drawer sets? I saw them when I was doing the grocery shopping the other day and thought – yes, that’s just what I need! So I bought two…. then I worked out two more could fit on the one shelf, so I managed to convince hubby to take me back (remember, I am not allowed to drive here!) and got two more…. he was like, only two more? And he put another two in the trolley… 🙂
It didn’t take me long to fill all those drawers…. trying to decide what went in there, is the hardest. I don’t have much space on the table as you can see, so things that used to sit in a basket like scissors, pens and rotary cutters, needed to go in the drawers. Also stuff I use regularly like thread, needles, punches… I am getting there and it is lovely to be able to find things!!! There are still a fair few odds and ends that need organizing, but hey, a sewing corner is never totally empty, is it?!
I have been working away at my Chilly Penguins bag for this month’s SAL. I am about to cut the fabric pieces out:
I think I am making this one for a friend for Chrissie, so I didn’t put the penguin on, but a bird by Gail Pan – a freebie from many years ago….
So that’s it from me for now… tonight I will draw two names for the Square-agonals Giveaway and post them tomorrow!!!!! So exciting!!!
