June WIPocalypse

So...I'm a bit late on the WIPocalypse for June, but I do have excuses! Firstly, I was...distracted last week (okay, they opened a new server for Ragnarok Online, which I played a LOT up until a few years ago, and a few old friends and me started playing again for nostalgia), so I needed to finish something to actually show you, and second, I needed to do some cleaning so I could take pictures for the monthly question!

So let's just start with that question...Show us your stitching space!  Where do you sit, and what is going on around you while you stitch (TV, audiobooks, etc)?

This is my my main stitching space - my corner of the couch in the living room, in front of the TV as I like to stitch while watching shows and movies (mostly with Felix, sometimes alone). As you can see, I have arranged my recent projects around me (and in that pink bag at my feet) and I also have my laptop nearby to pull up digital patterns. I only use that stand for a few of my projects, so it's not always there - I put it behind the couch when I don't need it.

This is my desk in "my" corner of the bedroom - as you can see, I have my sewing machine there and I also use it for everything that needs a bit more surface. Or rather I will be using it now, since this hast been the first time in quite a while that it has been tidy enough to actually use for anything!

Last but not least, this is my shelf for my stash (amongst other things). You can see two cubes of books and patterns, some knitting/crochet WIPs and my DMC boxes, but most of the boxes and drawers also hold craft stuff: the red drawers are needles, beads and specialty threads, the blue ones are for my knitting needles, crochet hooks and small sewing supplies. Then we have the top right yellow box with my (sewing) fabric stash, one of the orange boxes with stitching fabrics, the other orange and one of the white boxed hold kits and kitted up projects, one of the blue boxes is WIPs, the other thread storage (project specific, additional skeins, and leftovers), the second white box is frames (at the bottom) and finished projects (on top), the white box above it has various craft supplies and then the remaining three boxes in the lower right are my yarn stash.

Now for my stitching update, due to the reasons stated above I don't have much to show now, but I did finish this:

Part one of the Lizzie Stitching Wallet SAL by Faby Reilly Designs. And just in time, because today part two was released! I really like this flowers, and part two will add the backstitching, so it will look awesome, but still be finished quicker.  I'm looking forward to it!

Hahaha, das wäre bei mir genauso, das mit dem Aufräumen, bevor ich ein Bild machen könnte. Ich bewundere ja die Leute, die einfach so ihre Wohnung fotografieren können, ohne vorher Ordnung zu schaffen. Und wenn ich die vielen Boxen sehe, dann geht es mir genauso wie Jo - da würde ich ja so gerne drin stöbern gehen :))
