The dressmakers' dummy is where my imagination takes flight, and I couldn't be without a reference to my first every sewing machine:
I started with a truly messy study-sort-of-room, with a huge L-shaped desk as a reminder of the days when I did a lot of work at home on a desk top computer. By the time it finally died I was using a laptop more anyway. The old desk top, along with it's huge screen still sat in the corner of the desk gathering dust.
As a hang up from it's dual use the room wasn't organised for my sewing, there was no where to cut out (I took projects down stairs and cut them out on the dining table) and it was permanently untidy.The biggest change for me was swinging the L shaped desk round to give me a cutting space that I could walk round and moving the space for two of my sewing machines to the window, so I have better light.
I probably should have either photographed it first or tidied up again for the pictures.
OK, I feel guilty now. I'll go and give it a quick tidy up.
It only looks slightly better, but my Bernina (my main machine) and my overlocker tuck neatly away in cabinets and I have a clear space for cutting and drafting.No, of course, I need to get cracking on the 52 projects. I've actually already completed two of them and started another two, but I need to take photos and get blogging.
