IKEA. It brings out the consumer in me...or dedicated sewing space sorted.
I love IKEA. I know it sounds sad doesn't it, but I do. I love looking at all the impossible settings and could quite happily spend a fortune in there - so much for being thrifty eh?
Well today we had finally got rid of the Sofa bed that had been taking up soooo much room in our "workspace" (read dumping ground!); and put in the wing back chairs I got on Ebay a few weeks ago (awaiting re-upholstery, but they are in a good condition, just not a colour to my taste).
I've been complaining at late that I haven't got anywhere to store my sewing stuff and it seems John agreed. so off we went to IKEA and bought a desk. it's a simple computer desk, with a hole at the back of the top for wires to go down, which is perfect for sewing machine wires, two drawers and a cupboard and the anglepoise lamp that sits near teh computer is close enough for me to use should I need it.
I have all the stuff I was carting up and downstairs in a sewing box stored ready to hand and my machine sits in the cupboard rather than under the dining table. The overlocker is still sitting on the floor under the table and I need to get a strong box for it and a cover, but for now it;s out of the way.
I'm looking forward to making use of my dedicated sewing space, it's years since I had such as space. Bring on the sewing!
