My room is what's known as the Box Room or the smallest bedroom. It's about 8ft x 8ft square and looks out over the end of the street.
It took me two days to clean it up, but it does mean I've now got space to sew again.
This is my villains corner with some pics of Loki from the Marvel films. I must admit to having a bit of a crush on Tom Hiddlestone and he's by far the reason why I watch the films.There's also a cross stitch pic of Gru from Despicable Me that was sent in a swap and a tea towel of Maleficent, the best Disney baddie ever. If you look closely you can also see the Wicked Queen's crown and poisoned Apple, also sent to me in a swap.
Under the Tea Towel is my Singer hand powered sewing machine. This was given to me by a gentleman I used to look after. According to the Singer website it was made in Glasgow in 1902. The gentleman who gave it to me was in his 90's and it was his grandmother's. It's still working although I lack the co ordination to sew on it for long.
The top shelf serves as my Altar and the bottom has all my buttons, charms, trims etc. All in jars. You can see some of the mini's I've been sent on the wall.
I've put an over the door ironing station up which holds all my rulers and quilting templates. You can also see my calendar which I can stare at when I'm sewing. Yes he's semi naked and yes he's a Royal Marine. It's my traditional calendar that I buy each year for charity. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it
