my creative space- Penny!

Results are in from the name poll to name my new sewing machine, 56% voted for the name Penny, so Penny she is! (Alice came second at 35%, and Jane last). Thanks everyone who voted!
Other things I've been doing in my creative space
- sorting fabric by colour and size into lovely new plastic tubs and stacking them up high
- freaking out when the now-named Penny flashed and blew smoke (she's better now. phew)
- madly calling repair centres
- staring out the window instead of sewing. watching dog walkers and cranky birds.
- being unsure of what to do first. watching movies instead
- writing lists. crossing out lists. merging lists and then rewriting lists neater
- spending time shopping instead of sewing. finding old patterns and materials and possibilities
- spilling tea on everything and swearing
- cutting out sweaters for cushions
- planning a giant giraffe. Giant. Giraffe. you heard me.
- feeling a little bad for not sewing much. going to the pub instead
VERY productive, as you can tell.. (*cough*) But now that Penny is named, we can chat and sew all week long. Uh-huh.

Hahaha sounds like me! Writing lists, then reorganizing lists. Jump in feet first, I'm excited to see the results of yours and Penny's adventures :)
