We don’t have any spare rooms at all in our little terrace, and even have a through-room for our living room and dining room. I usually work on my lap on the sofa if felting; at the dining table if working on a mixed media model; set myself up in the bay window or next to the patio doors for photography; and sit in bed if sketching! I have a set of drawers full of materials- vaguely categorised but I’m not the most ordered or organised of people! I also have a box under the bed for all of my fabric, and all my toxic and sharp items are padlocked away in a toolbox at the back of the wardrobe so that my daughter can’t get hold of them. Finished work and little bits of kit that I need close at hand are kept out of my daughter’s reach on top of our bookshelf.
Thanks so much for taking the time out for this interview, Jenny. I adore your felted brooches and your dolls are something else! I like your idea of lists for things you've done (achievements) and also planning your time (outings and treats as well as work).
