My husband has just offered me my own space (I'm fairly sure that he's just trying to contain the sewing mess that is slowly spreading from one end of our house to the other...) and I'm just so excited at the prospect. I'm fantasizing about built-in cupboards and a giant inspiration board in a room just slightly away from the general hubbub of everyday life, but close enough to the heart of the house that I know what's going on.
The thought of a permanent location for my overlocker and sewing machine fills me with joy and only a crafter could share my thrill at being able to leave up the ironing board all the time.
While I know that Virginia Woolf didn't have sewing in mind when she wrote A Room of One's Own I really don't think that you can underestimate the importance of beautiful spaces (and corners!) to inspire us to create lovely things.
If I had a big comfy chair like this...
