I’ve always loved the ‘2 lounge-room’ aspect of my house, but with certain changes in my life, I have had to re-jig areas of the house to make it work better.
Instead of the usual lounge-room configuration of ‘lounge/tv/entertainment unit’ I now have my office and workspace set up.
I can almost put my hands on anything if and when the creative muse strikes.
If the kids have taken over the Main lounge, I can retreat to my space and work on whatever my hearts content is that day.
The overlocker is set up, beside the sewing machine.
The knitting machine(s) reside in a handy spot.
The Majacraft wheel is close to the fibre.
The loom is near the boat shuttles and, sigh, all that Habu/Dairing lushness. I think that is my favourite part – a new use for the ‘entertainment unit’ – a visual yumminess of all the fibre I am yet to work up into things for NEED=WANT and Moggy and Me.
I’m finding that the only hinderance is the departure of said ‘creative muse’.
I’m sure it will return at some stage but I am thinking with the lead-up to Christmas plus all that other life stuff (school, after school activities, drama rehearsals, Nippers, 7-a-side soccer, BIKRAM YOGA…a certified convert I am) etc etc etc, well it’s a struggle.
But I remain positive.
It has to come back at some stage, right?
