I've been cleaning up in the studio. I've organized. I've purged. I've re-organized and now I have a couple pictures to show you. I showed you the space right after we first moved, a little over a year ago. Wanna see the progress???
My favorite spot is the inspiration wall behind my sewing desk. I have all sorts of things on that wall. Small Quilts, my favorite painting from college, an owl clock- just like the one my grandma had as I was growing up, scissors cutting on an electrical tape cutting line, sketches, market badges- really all sorts of things. I also have some "blank" wall space... so I totally need to get sewing/swapping to add more to my wall. (Yes, the picture below is spliced together, so you could see the whole wall, edge to edge.)
I also have the design wall opposite the inspiration wall. Its blank-ish right now. I'm looking to pick up a large piece of foam insulation board from the home improvement store and wrap it with flannel. That will be later. For now, I generally just staple straight into my wall. (GASP) And I still have my fabric stash sorted by color, on the right hand side of the picture.
In my studio I have a custom built table. My friend Debbie (Hi Debbie!) had this huge awesome cutting mat in her sewing studio and I instantly had cutting mat envy. I did buy the mat about a year later, but it was much larger than my plastic costco table. This table, below, has a huge workspace, and ironing board on the left hand side and storage for 8 rubbermaids underneath. The best part about an MDF + 2-by-4 table is that it never shakes when I start stitching fast.
So that is a little peek inside the studio. I've managed to keep it clean for about 14 hours. I'd say times up on that!!!!
