My new planning involves moving out all the kitchen things and re-adjusting to make space for my roll-top desk and treadle sewing machine. I don’t doubt some layering will be involved, as well as - hopefully - stripping, sanding and repainting the dark desk. I want the two near each other, to create a sewing space, maybe (ideally) with a sewing model as well, because I don’t often work form a pattern, and having a figure to guide my sewing would save a good deal of trying on and guesswork. Will this all fit into my little house? I think so, but until everything is in the kitchen and out of my way, I can’t imagine how. Above all, I want to avoid the cluttered look. Recently I broke down and requested an invitation to join Pintrest, if I don’t give up on it right away, it should be an interesting way to keep track of ideas, and I’m hoping to be able to link it here and share what I see.
