Happy New Year!

Just a quick post to say I'm still here. We've had a lovely Christmas, despite most of the Magpies being ill at various stages and are all getting ready to go back to work and school. Not much craft has been happening; my main work space is in the dining room which was very much in demand throughout the festivities so I had to pack everything away. I am planning a massive overhaul of the room over the next week or two so that I can feel comfortable enough to get creative again, more on that another time methinks.

I haven't got any craft fairs booked in for 2012 yet, but I do have quite a long list of things I need to make for the house and things I'd like to make for myself, so there will be plenty to keep me occupied. My daughter very kindly bought me a crochet book for Christmas, I've been saying for ages I want to learn so that will keep my fingers busy when I'm tempted by the mountain of chocolate we still seem to be surrounded by.

Out of curiosity, I'm wondering where other people do their crafting? Do you have a dedicated space, or have you got a clever storage solution? I'm trying to think of all possible options for my own stash. If you'd like to leave me a comment, I'd love to hear from you.

Happy New Year to you all, I'm looking forward to a very crafty 2012!

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. It's the dining room for me too!

  2. Sadly, I have to use the dining table to put my sewing machine on. I've taken over a couple of the cupboards in the dining room...and one in the living room for fabric, along with *ahem* a few plastic storage boxes dotted here and there!

  3. I do have a desk in the dining room, apart from using the table but I've got boxes stashed all over the house and would really love to have all my materials in the one room but still be able to eat in there too!

  4. I love seeing everyone's plans for 2012! I find seeing other people's 'To do' lists also gives me a kick in the pants too! I really want to do a sewing machine cover this year too...hmmm...better get planning!


I really love to receive comments and will try to reply where possible x
