|Linen fabric from Amitie|
You know that awkward area under the stair that disappears into a wedge, well I've used this area for storage items that I don't want to be seen and made a curtain from this linen fabric from Amitie.
|Storage area - nook|
This area is just on the right as you enter "the nook", and I basically keep things here that I don't access very often. Mostly old quilting fabrics and crafty things. You never know when I'll get back into making another quilt.
|Storage boxes - sewing things|
This is the view as you enter the nook. These storage boxes are for my sewing fabrics/patterns/lining etc. I've also labelled all the containers - just can't help myself.
|Before the clean up|
I just can't resist buying fabric for that rainy day. It also gives me inspiration for patterns. Can you tell I like grey and Chanel. Have recently added japanese cottons on my list of favourites.
Some beautiful linen which I have folded using a fabric board, which was going to be thrown out. Cut down to size - it keeps the fabric flat and tidy.
I'm really happy that I've been able to clean this room up. After a bit of sewing of late (where are the posts? - DD hasn't sent me pics yet so can't post) anyway, I needed to reclaim a bit of space - mind works better without clutter. Wanted to add some shelves up the top, but Mr R said that I should re-design the pigeon holes - I like the way he thinks!!
That's another project - not sure how to re-design this area. Some would say that it looks fine but the storage area is quite deep and wastes space. Any suggestions???
Projects in the pipeline - 2 coats and 1 shirt - hopefully finished before winter is over.
