My sewing space occupies the room which was designed to be a family room, which has pros and cons. I love that the space is open, next to the kitchen and mostly that it is "my" room. The downside to this room is that of the three walls in this room, only one is a flat painted surface. One wall has a brick fireplace with a floor length window on the right side of it and the door to our deck on the left side, making this wall an unsuitable spot for any shelving etc. for my sewing paraphernalia. Opposite the fireplace is a dark wood, raised panelled wall (original 80's decor). As renters, we are unable to change this and are not to hang anything on the walls. My dream would be to have this wall hidden behind floor to ceiling shelving, but until then, I found a way around the "No nails or screws in the walls" rule.
Pieces of painter's tape are holding a quilt-in-progress that hasn't seen the light of day since our months living in old Edith. Being able to see my design up on the wall is certain to motivate me to finish this ad hoc creation. Guess what Belle will be working on soon? ;o)
