These white book shelves were in the sitting room and had become overstuffed dumping grounds. All my sewing bits and bobs, buttons, ribbons, zips and so on are now just behind the sewing cabinet. All the feet and tools for each machine are in their own boxes right to hand. My craft books and mags, patterns and the little things that I may need are all an arms length away. On the far left is a pretty hand painted cupboard that I got from Maggie, all her own work.
The shelves that were here are now in the glory hole and have made that a much better place.
The pretty painted cupboard hides a secret, it opens out to reveal a modern piece of office furniture. On the top are 2 baskets, one has my Christmas scraps and the other has larger pieces and some yardage.
The pile of sewing in the middle are quilt tops waiting to go on the frame, to their right is a fabric bowl full of pincushions. On the right is a collection of small hardware for my sewing. Bells, D rings, Bag clasps. press studs, magnetic bag closures etc. On the left are small screwdrivers, tweezers, a magnet, pens and fabric markers, quilting pins all the odds and sods that I may need.
There are still things to go in here, I will probably shuffle things around until I feel comfortable with the arrangement.
I even have room for all my cookery and gardening books on the shelves, and my tins of seeds can live here as well.
I made bread today and as the oven was on whipped up another Impossible Quiche. I did not bother with a recipe, just what veg I had to hand, eggs, cheese (half price and less) and some milk with 1/3rd of a tub of soft cheese, to give it some body I whisked in 3 tbp Gram Flour, it was delicious.
Half and half.
The washing up is done, kitchen put to rights and I am about to slob in front of the telly for a change.
