Since we moved, I no longer have a designated sewing room. But I’m not complaining because I have a whole corner to myself in our sleep-out! It has white walls (not ghastly wallpaper) but a lot of dead ants falling out of the rafters. And I have an imperative to keep it tidy as Clementine will be staying each Wednesday night to look after Rata on Thursdays. Where would I be without “Auntine”?
It has also been nice to put posters up again – I’ve a rather large collection of pictures and the last few times we’ve moved house Louis has motioned that posters on walls look “student flat-y” and we’re just going to put up proper framed things. We don’t actually have that many framed things so our last house looked woefully empty on the wall front. So in this house I have rebelled and things look a lot more lived in.
That little newspaper clipping of the photo that stands as my blog banner was not my photo in the paper, but I did happen to take the same picture of the bird nesting in the orange light outside the Embassy Theatre as the newspaper photographer. Except that I think he had the good sense to borrow a chair from Deluxe.
My lovely cupboard continues its state of flux. It’s a bit fuller as I didn’t put shelves up in my new sewing room as I didn’t want to have to brush dead things off fabric all the time. Did I also mention that flies and bees are constantly getting stuck in there too? It’s a charming room, really.
I just need to hem this skirt – I’ve lined it with that lovely flower fabric and I would love to know what it is – it feels so nice inside! The pockets are lined with deer fabric and the waistband is polka dot. It could be a mess but I like to think it isn’t…
