MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Moved, and settled - I think!

I'm back - I hope!  The movers came to move the bigger things that we couldn't lift and of course - it poured rain.  In all the places we've lived - it has 'weathered' every single time we've moved.  We've grown to expect it! 

Anyway, most things are in place, the pictures are hung and it's looking like home.  I'm very happy to say that my studio (shared space with a pull out couch for guests and the computer) has come together far better than I expected.  I've managed to keep all the things that mean the most and there's actually room to walk in here (surprise, surprise!). 

I've been taking pictures as I moved my 'stuff' and have a few you might like to see (or not!).  In 2009 I put my studio on the internet tour of 'Where Women Create' and you can see the results on this post here.  By the end of 2010 I had grown tired of the purple and green and, knowing this move was upcoming, I redid my studio.  You can see pictures of that re-do in these two posts HERE and HERE

Partially moved.....

Looks sad, doesn't it?

Now, here is the 'during'
and what will be my new studio...
maybe???


Is there hope for any sort of organization and
storage of all this STUFF????

Stay tuned for my next post to see the 'after' photos!!

Glad to have you back! I don't envy you having to put everything away but it will be wonderful when it is done. If you have a pullout couch in there you can take naps when the organizing gets to be too much!

good luck with setting up house and studio again, all will come together eventually, tho "eventually" can take it's time.

Glad you're back, SIS! The new studio looks so bright--and sometimes new surroundings will spark renewed interest. Pack away still everything you haven't touched in at least 8 months and start fresh :)
