So I thought I'd show you mine
I snuggle up in the very well worn corner of our leather sofa - don't look too close or you'll be able to see how worn the fronts of the cushions are - obviously well used and we're loathe to replace it even if we had the money as it is sooooo comfortable
I have an old Singer treadle machine table tucked into the corner there which tends to be the dumping ground for all my bits and pieces as I stitch along and tucked down between the sofa and the table is a little hidey hole area not easily viewed from the rest of the room where I tend to stuff whatever I'm working on at that moment - only tidying it up as it starts to spill out into the rest of the room
The kids and for that matter DH all know this is MY seat so vacate it when I come into the room to sit down
It has a good view of the tv so I can watch it over the top of my reading glasses as I merrily hand applique away and during the day I also get a good view of the day out of the window
The lamp is one of two I possess - purchased at great expense pre children when I had more money than sense, the other one is a 1920's art nouveau lady with a fabulous peacock sitting on her shoulder. DH thinks both my ladies are hideous but tolerates them because I love them so much. They did have to go into long-term hibernation in boxes in the loft while the kids were small - it was just too big a risk and it was wonderful to make their acquaintance again once the kids were old enough to respect them. Surprisingly the one in the picture throws out just the right amount of light for me to sit there stitching :o)
Those of you who have been dropping by for a while will see from the decor why I picked the colour scheme for my internet ostrich (with the celtic knotwork centre) and my hexagon quilt to go with this room as throws for the backs of the sofa and the armchair
So come on girls - I've shown you mine - let's see yours!
