My husband and I have been rather successful at expanding our family.
Sadly that means I’m losing the little sewing space I have. I started sewing 4 years ago and have had a temporary space ever since I started. For the last 3 years I had a corner of the spare room but just gave that room over to Mini Me.
Then my lovely husband put up my sewing table in the nursery as a surprise when I was away with work for a few days. His theory was baby will be sleeping with us for a while so I could use her room until she was big enough – that gives us 5 months!
Since there is no room in the house we’ve had to look outside the house. The garage is off limits as my husband is building a car in there. So a shed in the garden it is!
We looked at converting an old shed but have come into a little bit of cash which means we can buy a new purpose built shed. It arrives in 3 weeks and I’m a little bit giddy about it.
According to Pinterest this could be called a She Shed. Personally I think that sounds ick. I’m going to just call it my shed.
There’s not much to see at the moment – just a hole in the ground. Once the shed arrives we’ll need to insulate it, paint it and get an electrician out to put power to it.
Then the real fun will begin – setting out my sewing space. Current thinking is one long bench with my sewing machine, my overlocker and my mini ironing board. Then I think I’ll have a Murphy table on the back wall for when I need to cut fabric.
I’m spending so much time breastfeeding at the moment that my daydream version of the shed is freaking amazing. I really hope it lives up to my expectations!
If my eventual shed is even half as fun as these I’ll be chuffed.
