My lovely sewing machine sits on a very small fold-up table. When the table is not in use - it folds flat. I do all the pressing and keep pins, scissors etc on the counter top - which is covered by layers of blankets. When I’m not sewing - the counter top is in fact the kitchen counter.
It’s a very unglamorous sewing space, but I’m a great believer in improvising and making do. The jacket is coming along. I love how the orange tacking thread looks against the navy wool.
