Welcome to My Studio

Posted on

A Space of My Own

Here it is…..my very own mess studio. A place where I spend much of my time at home. It is a lovely, bright space, though much smaller than my studio at our Canadian house. I can say that I would prefer not to have a carpeted floor – we’ve already had a mishap with some red paint. It wasn’t pretty.

It is a bit disorganized, but I know where everything is. Or, at least, I did. I’ve spent a good chunk of the last week reorganizing. I took these photos last weekend. And then got totally consumed with trying to sort out a problem with my computer. Or rather, with the way the computer received the WIFI signal in our house. Seems that when my husband updated my operating system, something happened. The computer is working just fine (thank heaven!), but it just couldn’t keep the internet running for more than a few minutes. Anyway, it is all okay now. The solution involved moving the computer to my studio. Um, yeah. Like I wasn’t trying to do enough in this room.

The computer now resides on my sewing table, the red-edged table on the right in the top photo. At the moment, the sewing machine and serger are under the small work table shown above, but I think they will be relocated to the small office on the ground floor. It has a built-in counter running much of the length of the room, a closet with both hanging rod and lots of  shelving, and enough room for the ironing board. A couple of the rolling storage units should be easily be accommodated as well.

I’m thinking that maybe this will work out for the best. Getting the ironing board out of the studio will eliminate it as a dumping area. I can spin or knit in that spot and have a clear view of the computer screen if I would like to watch a dvd. Wow! What a concept! And I can leave art work out on the work table without compromising any textile projects I may have on the go. After all, art is messy.

Yep, this may be a good thing.
