On My Desk

Well this week is not really my desk more the dark circle before hell. My storage, shown here,is under the stairs and I sew on the bum end of the dining table since I don't have a sewing space, though I am thinking of putting a tent in the yard for one of the kids so I can claim a beautiful space, I fear in the middle of Melbourne winter government departments may take issue. I am posting to shame myself into action to sort through it and try to make it as functional as possible. Yeah to Kootooyo for On My Desk.

I do have some pretties on my desk though from this fab Etsy store. I really love the Chloe's Imagination fabric, so beautiful and a bit of Park slope as well. There is a lily too from my Walk homework. The walk was a challenge today - it was cold and windy - I didn't want to do it. It was feeding time at our zoo and the natives were a bit restless - I didn't want to do it. BUT I did it, it appears I am onto the anger part of my new addiction moving up from denial yesterday. Ikea catalogue came too, great for addressing my storage issues.

I also discovered I have limits - who knew running. I was excited about the markets, but with only 3 weeks notice I do need some sleep 6am-2am everday takes it out of you so I had to leave it for a while. A bit bummed out.

Wouldn't it be great to have unlimited sewing space....I've taken over the kitchen table again too....just left 2 spots at one end so we can still eat!

Sometime I will post a picture of how I have my storage organised (and I use the term loosely) and then everyone will feel better!

Good for you for persevering with the walk! What a lovely souvenir - I love lilies :-)

Gorgeous fabric from etsy - thanks for the link. And I think some ikea goodness will definitely help with keeping things functional - my storage area is a complete mess and I think I trip to ikea is definitely on the agenda!
