I made room for my sewing machine on my craft table yesterday. When we moved into the house five and a half weeks ago, I claimed a corner desk that was about to get thrown out, and it's now my official craft table*. We set it up in our office next to the computer desk.
I have set some rules when it comes to my craft table and craft corner:
- The table is mine. Mine. And therefore only my stuff will be on it (cats of course included as mine).
- I can leave it as messy as I want to.
- I can sit at my craft table whenever I want to (even when someone else wants to use the office desk).
- When I sew (or do something else at my craft table) I get to use the comfortable office chair.
That's only fair, isn't it? :)
I have ideas for my craft corner. Shelves up on the walls so I can store my little stuff in boxes. So I can organize. A notice board up on one wall so I can pin sketches or notes up there to be seen. Spotlights on the shelves and in the ceiling so I can get proper light. Just to name some of the ideas...
Yesterday I started to sew the give away bag. If it turns out as nice as I imagine it to, I'll have a hard time parting from it when that time comes. I'll go into town after work today to get some more supplies. I thought I had everything I needed at home but when starting the actual sewing part yesterday I came up with some new ideas... Now I might need buttons. Or ribbon. Or both. And something for the handle/strap. Hmmm...
I'm enjoying this!
(* I feel a bit pretentious calling it craft table as all I ever do nowadays is sew or knit. And I don't knit at the table. I do that while sitting on the cough. Or at work. When Christmas comes around I usually make Christmas cards (not last year though as I was interrupted by a house...) but that's it. No other paper craft for me. I've given all my pearls away. I've given all my soap making stuff away. I don't dabble with paint anymore. And I'm no longer creative with my writing either. So, craft table might be too pretentious...)
