    Where I sew

    I go through phases of sewing, mainly because I'm such a messy mare, that I don't have the space to do so. But given that I've invested some semi-serious cash on a new sewing machine (Viking Husqvarna 875Q) and I've had it 2 weeks and not been able to do anything with it due to lack of space I considered it high time I finally cleaned up enough to be able to use it.

    I'm hoping to be able to attach some photos for you to be able to see, but if it doesn't work, they are on my blogName:  DR1-Jan.jpg

    The before photos were taken in January and it's been an uphill battle since then to get it how it is now

    And here's the machine

    You definitely need to get busy on your 875Q. I have one and love it! BTW, your sewing area looks a lot like mine.

    I've had a little tiny bit of a play, but only really testing out some of the stitches, on some plain cotton. I haven't even changed the foot yet. I'm too tired and hungry to do much more, but here in the UK we have a long jubilee holiday weekend so I'm hoping I'll feel a bit more alive tomorrow.

    But I am loving her.

    Thank you for your comments - it is a constant struggle, and if any of you have every suffered with depression, or know people who do, just the thought of having to stay on top of it is enough to make you cry, particularly when the rest of the house is in a similar state.

    and as for the garden ............ lol

    But today, which is the first of 2 bank holidays in the UK, might be dedicated to sewing. After all I deserve it.

    Loved the pics. ESP the before. That's how I love to work!? I did think I could pop over the Pontypool road and give you a hand, but I am too late! Good job on the sort out. Did you actually throw anything out or just file it away? I tend not to throw, you never know when you may need that 2" square of bright orange lol. X

    Great job on your space. I find I sew better when my room is picked up and organized. It needs a little bit of that right now.

    You have to feel so much better being organized and able to get at your new Baby!! You may need to keep reminding yourself that if it gets that way again, you will once again be away from her.

    great job cleaning up. now your trick is going to be maintaining it while still doing some sewing. i can relate to the mess. i travel for work and have found that the once a week blitz i do in my hotel room translates well to keeping sewing area at home usable as well.
