The party has begun!
My craft space is in our attic which has a dormer on the right side where you come up the stairs.
You’re greeted by this friendly one-armed sock monkey that I found one day in my local thrift store. I didn’t even notice that she (yes, she’s a girl and her name is Penny) only had one arm when I rescued her from the store. The hanging is a project I had to abandon - when I rug hook, I get tendonitis.
When you get to the top of the steps, and turn to the left, you’ll see one of my bulletin boards – and yes, it is on the floor, partly to cover up the side of the little chest of drawers and partly because there’s no wall to hang it up on.
View looking to your left from the top of the stairs:
You can see that my biggest challenge in this space is the extreme slope of the ceiling. I can’t have any tall bookshelves or storage units.
And the view of my work table.Below are some close-ups of things on the table and views of button and fabric bits in jars.
I like to use glass so I can see what I have or else I forget
what I’ve got and I go buy more!
kitty cat my assistant, wondering when I’m going to stop taking pictures and pay some attention to him.
He’s hoping I’ll come over and pat his tummy.
He never gives up.
Some books and magazines:
Below is the room looking from the right when you come up the stairs.

I hope you enjoyed your little tour of my space and my stashes of stuff! I’ve had fun showing and telling! Thank you for visiting!
