New Sewing Space

Sewing Room

I love my little sewing space in our guest bedroom.  All my fabric lives in drawers in the double storage bed I bought years ago from IKEA.  I’m trying to keep it this neat all the time, but it’s hard when you have multiple projects on the go.

The print is by Julie Morstadt, who did the gorgeous cover for my favourite Neko Case album, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood.

Modus Operandi: The Classifier

I didn’t grow up a tidy person, and my boyfriend (the minimalist) would argue that I am still not a tidy person now… but spending over a decade as a librarian did teach me a little something about classification, taxonomies, and the art of putting things away.

While I am definitely a minimalist+ sort of person, who struggles to make do with the bare minimum and loves things as much as she loves ideas, I do very much enjoy sorting things into groups and will organise by category (often to the point of obsession).

From packing lists, to reading lists, to drawers in my closet for different types of clothes, to the pantry, I just love to put things in order. I’m just not always very good in doing it to completion.
