A glimpse of the Back Shed


I rarely have a tidy work space but recently I did have a clean up and took photos just in case it never happened again! I won't put all of them up this time, some will be saved for another day. Just inside my sewing room door is a large wooden box that was used over 60 years ago to store camping equipment. We have turned it on its side and put shelves in it. There is a glimpse of the table with my sewing machine and some of my makings scattered around. The sewing table is an old pine table that is close to 100 years old I rescued before it went up the tip. It is scarred and a little wonky but has such character! I have old bottles on the window sill full of buttons and an antique oak side table with my cutting mats on it. I'm not going to go off trying to imagine what each piece of furniture was used for or what sort of life it had (I'll leave that up to my friend Chris who's soooo much better at imagining than I am!) though I do know the pine table was used to cut up sheep it has the scars to prove it  then it lived in a garage with all sorts of accumulated junk on it.
