Hello there! It has been a while hasn’t it??  I’m not going to apologise for my absence from the blogging world. I think 5 weeks is my longest ever break from this space. Needless to say, it has been busy here, but now I’m ready to come back.

Our renovation has made staggering progress and we are almost finished our kitchen, back room and laundry space. Hopefully I’ll be able to share some photos soon. While in the fixing up mood, and with my sewjo well an truly MIA, I have channeled my spare energy into organising and tidying my sewing cave. A job which has been well over due for months and exacerbated by the renovation as we’ve been storing tiles and other building materials in there.

I’ve never purchased any furniture for my sewing space. I’ve been lucky enough to receive everything from family, friends or from the side of the road. So while in the ‘spendy’ renovation mode, I headed to Ikea to purchase some new bookcases to hold all of my sewing junk and my ever increasing stash of teaching resources.

I wish I could show you pretty, styled and colour matched photos of my sewing space, but unfortunately, it is a rather practical space organised by me, and I’m not really like that 🙂

Here are my new, organised bookshelves. I still have more space to squeeze in books and school resources. I just need to sort them first.

I’ve also moved a small desk into my room, so that if my husband and kids are hogging the study and dining table, I can still work.

My fabric is now folded and in one space. No more clear boxes. I wish I were organised enough to coordinate the fabric into colours or types, but at least it’s all away neatly now.

So with my newly organised space, my freshly serviced over locker and sewing machine, and summer fast approaching, I am ready to head back into the sewing cave to make something awesome!

I’ll be back soon.
