Corners of my home...the sewing room!

Corners of my home...a peek into the magical world (well it is to me) of my sewing room. I still have a little patient at home which means not a lot is getting done around here except being on call for drinks, cuddles, cool flannels and medicine giving...
So its 'Nurse Suzie' rather than 'Suzie Sews'.
Along with this new role comes the sleep deprivation...up most nights with my little one...The ability to concentrate is quite poor at the moment...if you read my blog you will know that spelling is a little off in this space anyway so when I am tired...well its best just not to write much...
So its mostly eye candy today of all things that make me smile in my room...

Piles of yarn, batches of fabric ready to use, rows of books oozing with inspiration and of course little tokens of love from my children...pinkie pig to some cbeebies buttons and woolly sheep...
I am working on my knitting in the evening and trying to finish a few sewing bits. OK I am trying, actually if I am honest I am just collapsing on the sofa in a bit of a daze...
My patient is on the mend, although he is still worn out from the virus and his hearing is working at about a 90% loss...so I can not even read to him at the moment.
For a little chap that loves his story time this is quite hard.
Still we find happiness in other things, cuddles on the sofa, lining the cars up in neat rows, trying to draw Pokemon and finally getting around to making all our thank you cards for all the gifts at Christmas...If you look hard enough there are always simple pleasures and silver linings...until next time...keep well...

Those sleepless times are so hard aren't they? I hope the little chap is back to being his bouncy self very soon.

I'm so jealous of that sewing room - I really really really really want one! x

I reckon that we should call you, 'Suzie Soothes'.
Hope he is much better soon xxx

love being nosey and seeing what sewing books other crafters have : )

hope he's feeling better, i have to admit, i like it when my youngest is a bit poorly and all he wants is to cuddle!

I love your books selection-I have nearly all the same ones! Also, gingham really makes me smile too. I started this weekend turning an old tablecloth (large gingham pattern) into a pleated purse. It is really fun, but I haven't quite finished it yet.

some gorgeous fabrics there, and some fantastic knitting yarns - what a lovely retreat room to go and hide in when it all gets too much!

Donna said...

Oh your poor little baby. Having spent most of late December and almost all of January being ill myself I know how horrid it is. I do hope they are better soon and that you don't get it. x

Hope he's still improving.
Thanks for the peep into your sewing room, like lucykate crafts I love a nosey into other people's homes!

All the colours are fantastic, a real feast for the eyes. No wonder you enjoy sewing so much.

Perhaps, so that he can still enjoy story time, you could have him tell you the story! He could make them up by looking at the pictures!

I love the sewing room, all the reels of cotton look fab, and all the books! I could poke around in there all day! I hope things are getting better with the illnesses.

Ruth said...

Oh poor little thing. I hope he gets better soon and that you get a rest from nurse duties soon. We have a similar story at our house - little one awake during the night with a horrible cold. I will think of you when I am up at 3am! Thanks for the snoop around your house - it's lovely.

Oh the poor little mite, to still be ill. And poor you - it is so very draining to be on call day and night, though no way we'd want to pass it off to someone else ... look after yourself, the letters and other things can wait, I'm sure!

Your sewing room is lovely - wish I had one!
