This is my favourite little nook of my sewing room. This room is a continual work in progress. I love having everything on display, and on open shelves so it’s all right there in front of me for inspiration.
Filling these containers with buttons and pink sequins and sead beads kept me ammused for Quite a Long Time.
I’ve been collecting history of costume books and other fashion and craft books for most of my life. I’m loving the new crochet books at the moment. Suddenly crochet is looking not-so-daggy.
These books were given to my grandfather by the owner of a clothing manufacturing company in Perth. My Pop was an accountant and used to do their books of an evening after work. They gave these to him when he finally retired.
