A knit blog friend recently talked about her crafting set up, where and how she gets her craft on. Which prompted me to take stock of my habits. So I have put together a photo montage of my room and it’s space. Please excuse the messiness, just keeping it real here.
I love the French Doors leading into my space. Especially the Transom Window above the door. At Christmas I have a holly arrangement I place up there. This year I want to add a string of lights to it. The two things I want to change in this room? Get rid of that honking huge TV!! I have tried to GIVE it away, no one wants it. And the cables and cords that liter the corner by the window. Ugh. I need to get a surge protector extension cord to use there.
Once the TV is gone I want to get a love seat or over sized chair to use on that wall. The current chair will then go to the ugly cord corner. Then I will use one of the trunks I have as a coffee table/storage. As you can see, my table spaces are a little messy. I tend to just pile things up and leave them be. I need a better storage idea for holding all the things. Or maybe I just need to actually put them where they belong when done with them?
To the sides of the door you can see some of my art. The angel was done with crayons on fabric which was then transferred to paper by ironing. This is the fabric piece rid of the crayon, but still showing the image. My Mom has the transfer on paper framed. The wall hanging is a quilted piece I did when my daughters where small. I had a quilted piece for just about every holiday. I have no clue what’s become of the others. I need to remake them.
Where do you craft? Is it a space big or small? Comfy and cozy or sterile and sleek? My sewing, bow making, etc. is done in my upstairs craft room, this area is strictly for my knitting. And now for my biking. I may need to move that bike to the area where the huge TV is now, that way I can watch the real TV while exercising. Would you like a 55″ TV? Free! Just come and take it, please!!!
Joining with Nicole today. Keep Calm and Craft On!!
