Take a look at my old Craft Corner where I could hardly get moving. I stopped using the sewing machine in the end because I had so much stuff piled up in front of it.
Something had to be done about it!

Well now I've moved into another corner, with a better view looking out to the garden.
The downside of this room is that it faces north so it's always in the shade.
That was fine when it was used by my son as a bedroom - but I would like just a little bit of sunshine...

Oh well, a girl can't have it all. Look at this - I've got a cupboard and I've got storage boxes.

I've also been given a bookcase for all my magazines and craft books.
Look inside at all the drawers and baskets where all my craft things are stored.

And on this side are the fabrics, stored in plastic boxes and on shelves.

There's quite a collection of books there too.

Nice patterned rug to go under my feet.

And this is the sewing box I inherited from my Aunty Dorothy. It was her 21st birthday present from my Grandma and Grandad, I think that would have been in the 1930's. My husband treated it for woodworm and re-furbished it for me.

Take a look inside. It came complete with some Sylko cottons on wooden reels.
I like old stuff.

And I inherited my pin cushion too, it belonged to my Mother- in - Law.

So now it's lovely to have a new corner to sew in and a bit more space and storage.
Think I'll hang on to that bed though, just in case.
