A Peek At My Creative Space

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m a little upset today. I’m packing up my little study/studio space, and it’s actually really breaking my heart. I will be without my sewing machines, my dress forms and my patterns for almost 3 months… I’ve never gone that long without sewing my whole life. It’s a little terrifying to me.

Like a fool this is the one thing I’m devastated about. I’m not me without designing clothing. I’m not sure I want to know that Meg!

Unfortunately, I had actually just started re decorating my little creative space a few weeks ago… and was hoping to show you photos once it was complete, but I guess that’s not going to happen!! But the fact that I only got halfway through means it’s way way easier to pack it all away now!

I wish I hadn’t taken my inspiration board down already, but I’ll try and snap some photos of that soon, before I take it apart completely.

One things for sure, I will not be packing up my sketch books. That would be a step too far…

I love your sewing space, it looks so organized! My sewing space is just a corner of my bedroom, and not nearly so neat. For my last three moves, my sewing machine and current projects have been the very last thing packed, and one of the first things unpacked, I can’t imagine three months without them!

Good luck with the move, Megan! Focus on that new sewing studio that you’re going to get and all the great things you want to do in a new space. Best wishes for you and your family on this new journey. :)

great space. I hope your next one will be just as great. By the time three months are over, you’ll have enough ideas bumping around in your creative brain to keep you busy for a year or more!
