A corner of a room of one's own.
A corner is better than nothing. I must have a designated space. The dining room table works for cutting fabric and large drawing projects, but only on a temporary basis. I need a place for my stuff that is easily accessible and a place where I can leave a project out in the open for a while. This has been the biggest adjustment of moving to this house - I've lost "my" room. Gratefully, my sweet dd has allowed me to have a corner of her room. On the condition that I teach her to sew on the machine. Which I will do when she is a little older and stops losing her hand-sewing needles. Yeah, lost needles are always fun. I've tried hard to make my area fit in with the decor of her room, and we still struggle with the "I can leave piles of junk on my table but you, dd, keep your stuff off of it" concept, but I'll take what I can get for now. I'd like to make that cork board cuter. Any suggestions? I have my eye on upgrading my project space to the garage, but I'm going to have to fight dh for it. So show me your rooms, nooks, crannies, etc. where you create. I'd love to see your solutions to claiming your own project space. And after you take a pic, tell me what you love to create in your room of your own.
