Let’s face it. The third trimester is not, for the most part, a time when pregnant women are motivated to do anything. I’m sure I will be motivated to nest in a couple of months and I know I’ll be motivated to get this baby out, but for now I don’t want to do anything. I don’t want to clean or cook or go anywhere or even craft most of the time. I think part of the not wanting to craft is from being tired and the other part was from being unorganized. Then I read this post yesterday on The Pleated Poppy’s Blog and I went and cleaned up so I could show you my “studio”. Like her, I don’t have my own studio and in a way it’s good and bad – just like she said. I use our Sunroom for my sewing space though and for the most part it is my space. People just walk through it all the time!
This is the chalkboard I redid last summer. I bought it at a thrift store in town. I try to keep my list updated with what I want to make most, but it sometimes stays the same for a long period of time…
I moved all my yarn out of the sewing cabinet, to make more room, and I like it better. Now my yarn is in the living room cabinets where it will be much more accessible for actual knitting. I will probably eventually clean out the knitting basket for another sewing room related item, but am not sure if I want to rip all those things out or knit on them. To tell the truth I’m kind of tired of knitting.
I also want to show you my “teacher” desk while it is nice and clean. Hopefully it will actually stay this way. This is where I keep all my office supplies in our office/classroom. We just got a fancy new printer and by putting it on my desk I can maybe keep the piles off it. Don’t be fooled too much, right now they’ve just moved to the floor. I need to get them sorted and put away…once again, the motivation is not there!
Hopefully now that I’ve gotten my fabric and yarn sorted I will feel more compelled to make some things. The children need some new fun things and I definitely need to be making baby items, for our baby and for all the baby showers coming up. Time to get to work!
