June already and what has happened to the weather! It just seems to keep raining here and the garden is soggy but growing like mad.
I have taken the opportunity to do a bit of decorating. Some of you will have seen pictures of my 'studio' before. It is in fact an alcove in a corridor, so tiny. My desk is too big to get through the doorways - I built it in there and it is sort of shoe horned in place along with the tall chest of drawers where my computer sits. So it has not been moved in many a year! I decided that it was about time that the window and the wall behind were painted so on Thursday I moved everything except the desk into the adjacent dining room and pulled the desk back as far as it would go. I cleaned everything down and undercoated. So on Friday I spent the morning painting the walls and glossing the window. Of course putting everything back took so much longer as it needed sorting and reorganising plus I wanted to reline the drawers so they had to be emptied and tidied. By the end of the afternoon everything was back in place and looking clean and tidy.

So it was pleasant to sit and stitch for a while yesterday evening and here is a peek at what I was doing.

Many thanks for hosting us again Wendy - pop over to Sugarlane Designs to see what everyone else was doing.
Have a great weekend.


  1. You have a cute little place to work with a big sunny window it seems. I'm in the process of cleaning up my sewing room too but it's taking so much longer as it is a huge place. So consider yourself lucky in a sense. Love the embroidery. Is that your own design? ;^)

  2. Love your place to sew and the embroidery is gorgeous.

    Wishing you a great weekend.

  3. Love your space Lin with that beautiful window. Your stitching project looks very sweet and such lovely stitching x

  4. It looks great! All fresh and clean and tidy looking. Great to have the window there with all that natural light.

  5. Hello Lin,

    Sounds like a big job, well done on getting everything back into the right spot. Love the natural light you get to work with. Now I wish my legs looked like that girls! Happy stitching.

    Happy days.

  6. Wow Lin you have been busy. I love your little aclove of creativity. X:)

  7. Your alcove is a perfect place to sit and stitch! Interesting stitching going on too ☺

  8. Such a cute sewing alcove. The little peek at the embroidery looks so sweet! Enjoy your week Lin. Xx

  9. Cute little spot near the window Lin... I love the texture that your stitching creates on the boots of your design...
