Not much sewing going on this week, but I did get a small design wall put in my sewing room. I don't know how useful it will be, it is a little hard to get at since it is behind my cutting table/ironing board, but I have hopes that it will be of some use. I had none before, just the bed and the floor, so if it works, it will be easier on my back. I keep trying to improve my space, and I know that it isn't perfect, but I do like to spend time in here, it is balm to my spirit whether I am on my computer, or sewing, or just watching television and thinking about sewing. On one of the groups that I visit there was a discussion about sewing rooms versus sewing studios, and there were opinions given, one of which was that people who felt that their skills were average or less felt that their spaces were sewing rooms, as people with more confidence in their skills had sewing studios. I think that there is truth to that theory, in my case at least, I'm not oozing confidence, but I sure do like my sewing room, and am grateful to have one. Sewing is my hobby, and I admire the work of those who excel, but I am happy to be plodding and improving.
