|View from my sewing desk|
I've got all my sewing books right to hand, although I do have to crawl under the able to get to some of them! Most my haberdashery is on those shelves beside the desk too, and some on the shelves behind (the two bookcases join in an L shape). I do miss having desk drawers to keep my habby in but I'm sure I'll get used to it.
To the right of the desk I have my brilliant rainbow drawers, they are full of fabric. They are labelled to say which colour of fabric, or type of fabric is in each. I've also got the ironing board there but I think I need to find somewhere to leave it open ideally, and there's no socket by there so it might have to go in the bedroom side of the room. The boxes on top of the drawers have all my stationery in.What you can't see is to the far right, beside the filing cabinet I have a stack of the boxes like the one on top of the filing cabinet, full of fabric!
It is amazing how much stuff you can fit into these shelves, plus I have things stacked up on top too. They are good for getting lots of things into a small space. It total the area I have for the sewing room is around 5ft x 7-8ft. There is an awful lot of fabric and sewing books squeezed into that space!
I've just managed to find an extension lead so once I figure out how to plug it in without having to move those giant shelves full of stuff I'll be good to go. This weekend I plan to spend several hours sewing. I haven't decided what yet, think I need to have a browse through some of the books to choose a project.
