Before the before, before & after

So I have been a very bad Bee member & am 3 months behind in my blocks but I kinda have a decent excuse I think.
The year started off calm & went to hectic in 0.3 seconds. 
New to me coffee truck delivered on 7 January. 
Unplanned trip to Oz took a 4 week chunk. 
Came home to sewing room looking like a storage facility. 
Started work the day after I arrived home. Been working 7 days a week ever since.
That pretty much sums it up. Here it is in pictures.


See, there is a sewing machine in here, it's just impossible to get to it let alone use it!!

My cutting table
 Just ignore the pile of paperwork boxes, they still need to find a home. And I am not even going to go there about the stockpile of wadding behind those boxes. Yes I may need an intervention :)
 My ironing board & comfy chair. Almost obscured by the stuff for the eventual car boot. Not my exercise ball but those boxes.
All the pretties, back where they belong :)
 I am so lucky to have this space in which to create. Now I just have to carve out some time so I can justify this beautiful room. I started yesterday morning with one hour as soon as I woke. Seems to be this is the best time to exercise & create for me as it does not allow me to forget or get distracted by some other household task like cleaning or washing & gets the good stuff done. Like this blogging time.

I am so seriously loving what I do & especially with whom it is done.

  1. Stash envy happening. And space envy too. But happy things are getting into their rightful places and slowly but surely you are getting to the place you want to be.

    1. Yeah but it's mostly old stuff, hardly any modern lovely's LOL never satisfied are we?? No, I am VERY satisfied & even more so now I am carving out some time for sewing. This working 7 days a week is just making me frazzled!! No time for sewing & too damn tired even if I have a minute.
      So lucky to have my life & appreciate every second of it.

Sorry folks but too many spam comments lately so the word verification is going on for a little while. Once I am no longer "BIG" in Russia I will take it off.
