...and everything in its place. Well not quite, but I'm getting there.
I now have clean work surfaces. I've even thrown out some fabric. Gasp! And a friend who likes to make quilts will get some Freshcut fabrics as an extra belated Christmas gift.
I love my Ikea trestle table. Raised to its full height it's perfect for patternmaking. I don't have to lean over and strain my back. And the trestle legs are great for extra shelving.
The little table below is an old music table. It would have originally held gramophone records. It now holds all my reference folders. I keep folders on subjects like Embroidery, Quilting, Children's Wear, Women's Wear, Patternmaking, Interiors (for past renovations), so that whenever I see something I like in a magazine I have a place to keep it. This is a habit we were encouraged to develop at fashion school, and one I've been happy to continue with.
See, on a good day, I can be quite organised. Really I can.
I want to wish all my blogging friends a big Merry Christmas. You have given me so much inspiration. I hope you all have a happy day tomorrow. I look forward to sharing more craft with you next year!
