My Creative Space 2

As promised earlier these are the ‘innards’ of my room where the most interesting stuff often lurks.

Above – my cupboard with a real mixture of things including embroidery threads,   knitting patterns, patchwork, stencilling box, Christmas decoration bits & pieces and, of course, the spare sewing machine!

Next – a drawer containing all my art  stuff, sketch pads, paints, pencils, brushes and my calligraphy pens.

Then – there’s my craft drawer in which I have separate plastic boxes (each one has a large section at the bottom & a divided shelf at the top) containing jewellery findings, wires, beads and tools; ribbon embroidery stuff; friendly plastic, heat gun etc; and one miscellaneous box containing all sorts of goodies like stamps and stencils, glitter and feathers.

Finally – there is the pattern drawer which holds all my collection of dressmaking patterns collected over the last 30 years or so.  Along with bags of interfacing.

In addition to this, fairly organised space, i also have homes about the house for my knitting machines, scrap fabrics and tons and tons of wool.  Maybe one day these will be given proper storage?

Well one can always dream….
