I kinda wish I was already sewing when we bought this house, I could have battled with Gray over his office. I am sure it would have made a much better sewing room ;) Too late now though and I am quite happy watching the world go by out of the kitchen window. I have seen quite a few people use the Ikea trolly to store their fabric, being in the kitchen this unfortunately wasn't an option for me. Last thing I want is my new dress smelling of last nights dinner! I bought this chest of drawers from Next after hunting high and low for something suitable, everything was too wide or not deep enough. I still plan to paint it white at some point but for now I am too busy sewing to waste time painting!
My work mates bought me this sewing basket from Cath Kidston for my birthday, it's not available anymore but I love this one too!
I do have more than one pattern although you wouldn't know it from the dresses I have made so far! I am toying with having a few formal lessons to help teach me the basics and give me more confidence to try other patterns.
I had to go buy another Next bobbin lamp, I couldn't not! It's sitting on a bobbin storage box that my sister bought me. I still love that my pinking shears are pink.
My new BFF - Janome SMD 3000, a Sewing Machines Direct exclusive model. I haven't even touched what it can do but I do love how quiet it is.
It's almost as if sewing was always meant to be, this little wooden heart is from my wedding, very apt don't you think!
