You would think it's spring - yeah right!

In fact on the 1st of June it is officially the first day of winter, but it's been pretty brass monkeys around here lately, and everything looks a mess outside and I have to say it does inside as well, so on that note I shall walk you through my funspace (office/sewing room). You see everytime I walk in here I think I was just becoming more depressed with the state of it, so with Saturday morning vigour I went for it. It didn't start out as a full scale attack, but just a bit of a go at the buttons, because any minute now I was going to knock them over and then end up with a pin in my knee while kneeling down trying to pick them up, and we all know what that feels like, so it was time for a pre-emptive attack...

It was one of those situations where everything was so precariously balanced on top of a slippery plastic bag, that it all threatened to go shooting across the floor should you breath near it.


You know I'm almost too embarassed to show you, but I'm keepin it real ...

In a previous life this was known as a "fabric stash". More like fabric trashed!

and I kind of knew where everything was, but I only mean kind of knew.



And here is the reason I get myself in this situation in the first place


So this ...


became this


and this was never going to work


so became ...








Not quite there...


but by the magic of television...

And because I'm so honest I am going to show you my dirty little secret, but it's just between you and me, okay?


My little cupboard under the stairs, which would give even Harry Potters rellies, The Dursleys nightmares!

And of course there is the post battle carnage to clear up...


...because I can hear Mr Busy muttering something about "someone breaking a leg on these stairs in a minute".

But to be honest I think I might need a bit of a lie down, because I'm shattered

I love that you were keeping it real lol!! And I hope you know we ALL have at least one spot like the cupboard under the stairs:) In the States we have these wonderful basements that are the best place to throw all your crap:) The new clean space looks so great! Will you come do mine now?

Hahaha! We're a whole world apart, but we both tidied our workrooms at the same time!
I see from your earlier post that you're blind in one eye.
I say, next time it gets messy (in about 2 days' time) just close your good eye and hey presto, the mess will disappear!
