My place of work
I don’t go to work in a traditional sense. I’m lucky enough to have retired early. In the summer months I live on a boat, but during the winter we come back to the uk and take a rental property so I can spend time with friends, and family.
I love this little furnished rented house, I wish I could live here always. But sadly we will only be here until the end of May. So I’m making the most of it. One great feature is that there is a good size attic room, reached by some steep stairs through the second bedroom.
There is a fitted desk with an office chair. This is where I have my sewing machine. There is also space for laying out and cutting material, and room for the laptop computer, a desk lamp and books.
There is a roof window where the sun streams in. Underneath the window are two foldaway chair beds which are piled up with my sewing materials and half finished projects.
In the corner by the stairs, is a small glass table belonging to the house, with some rather vile artificial flowers in vases. These are not mine, please don’t associate me with such bad taste! Whoever owns the house does have a strange taste in decorations. There are abstract pictures, old photographs and very horrible curtains. But hey, we are only here for a short while. I can put up with them!
So this is where my blogging mostly takes place, where I sort through my photos, fill notebooks with ramblings. This is where I do my sewing. I like to make fabric baskets, toys, and zipped purses. I give them all away as presents to friends and family. I’m always looking for bits of fabric in charity shops, or the remnant bins in haberdashery shops.
