I have always wanted a place of my own to knitt and sew, all the times I have dreamed that when the kids grow up and move out I can utilise there bedrooms but I will have to wait forever........
But them Marty came up with a goodidea ( Mr smarty pants) that if we got rid of our big computer desk and monitor moved everything around a bit in the den, I could have a corner in there hmmmm I thort this might work so after a few days of pushing and shoving moving wires around and sorting out xbox leads and PCs towers chucking out old sofas and replacing it with two single chairs I now have a small craft courner of my own yippi (just need to decorated it now but got to give Marty time to breath first)
I still need to get myself a fold up chair of some sort but for now I just used a dinning chair from the kitchen but I don't mind it just means that now I can sew in peace and in the middle of something I don't have to put it all away just so we can eat off the kitchen table that was always so frustrating.
So now my creative juices have been working overtime a fellow knitter from our Mrs T's group is a "proffesinal" seams mistress and has give me all theses beautiful pices of fabric from the spare basket at her curtain factory and I've been sewing like the clappers to make things to make my corner cosy so a BIG BIG thank you to Miss Sarah for your help
This is what I've been up to
I made a nice cover for my machine as the one I had was an old plastic thing was ok whilst it was housed in the cuboard but now it's on show it's got to look posh don't you think
I made a few bits for my knitty friend Vicki in the same material and I kept some for me too I have so many ideas running around in my head and not enough hours in the day to star them all.
When we threw away the old sofa I bought two nice chairs from ikea they were more practical and took up les space but the covers on them are cream arrrr! I know not a very practical colour however they are washable but I always intended to cover them or drap lovely knitted crochet throws over them but then I decided to make some quilted material runners instead and they came out a treat
I backed the matrial with blue lining so to stop it slipping on the chair and make them a bit more robust for the "xbox King" when he's killing all his American friends at 2am in the morning whilst I'm in bed dreaming ..........of the next project arrr you see that is the secret of a happily 20 yr maraige ,xbox for him craft rooms for me bingo
Here are some of my new bits I also got for Christmas
So now I can knit sew to my hearts content and Marty can play ..... Smile Marty your on camera oh I forgot to mention that he also got a pair of head phones that DROWN OUT ALL THE SOUND TOO so I can listen to my books n music while I play bonus .
