Sorting out my workroom … and happy birthday to Rosie!

by Helen on February 1, 2013

Yesterday was Rosie’s birthday. She and Dan had a great day out at the Making of Harry Potter …..

Although I did help her learn to drive, I do not think this particular driving technique was included in her tuition!  They had a great time, and Rosie came home with her very own Dumbledore wand.  Sadly I do not think waving it will help me finish tidying my work room!  But I have made a good start…..  

My Workroom

My cupboard has been sorted out and look !  You can see the carpet, which is quite a novelty!  Charlie the Patchwork Elephant presides proudly over my well-organised space  and the chair with the blanket is my computer desk chair.  Behind the closed door is my sewing area – but I am afraid this is not at all sorted and tidied yet, so is certainly far too messy to show (I am ashamed).  Instead let’s sit at my desk … 

My Workroom

A few familiar projects – my one remaining Cotton Spool Mouse (the others found kind new homes) – but I did discover one kit when I was tidying – please do email me (helen@bustleandsew.com)  if you would like it – $15 plus postage.   Then there’s my Fabric Deer Head and the Bustle & Sew Calendar too.  Up on the shelf over my desk is the lovely little Japanese doll my Dad brought home from one of his many overseas trips when I was just a little girl…. loved and treasured for many years.  And my little polar bear embroidery …..

My Workroom

 all in French knots – I spent many happy hours in the gazebo one summer creating this sleepy young fellow – when Ben was young ….

Baby Ben

Aaaahhhh.. so cute, so small – and, even then, so (just a little bit) slobbery!   It’s been quite a few birthdays since Ben was that small!

Hi Renee, thanks for your kind comment, but I’m sorry it isn’t as it’s taken from a children’s book cover so isn’t my copyright to sell. Helen x

That cupboard is fantastic. Love it!!! Your curtain material looks pretty. I’d love to see a better picture of it, though.
