I’m loving how spacious my workroom feels now, and it seems to have inspired me to do some crafting (pics later).
Here’s the corner of the workroom where the day bed used to be:
As you can see, it’s bright and airy. The cat has accepted a basket as a replacement for the day bed, which is now downstairs in the lounge.
I’ve come to the conclusion that shifting things from the edges of the room to the centre back in 2012 was a mistake. It felt too cluttered, even if it did mean I could fit more into the room. This is the plan I drew up during that reshuffle:
Looks good in 2D, not so good in 3D.
Discovering that the drawing board converts to a table also makes me very happy. It’ll get much more use like this, and I can always swivel it into a vertical position if I want to draw.
I’d left a few unfinished projects scattered over my old wooden table when I went overseas so I’ve been tackling a few of them (or deciding they weren’t such a great idea after all – time away can give you a fresh perspective). I used fabric pens to draw on two buttons I made when testing if I could make badges with fabric:
And I framed the cat embroideries:
I also used up some more wooden beads to make this simple necklace:
And I sit and stitch of an evening, when I’m not nodding off thanks to the lingering weariness from a very busy month overseas.
