I realized this morning that it's going to prove a bit difficult to get really good pictures of the new studio, simply because the room is small. I do have a window (first time I've had a window in my studio in years...yay!!). So, as promised, here are pictures.....
Starting to the left of the door....
There isn't enough room in our kitchen to house our water cooler, so it has found a home in my studio. Handy when I want a drink!
The computer area. You can also see the shelf that runs across pretty much the
entire wall - it holds my button jars and various other things.
My cutting table, which was a huge bonus - I never expected I
could manage to fit it into the space. Happy about that!
My inspiration board above and a further view of the upper shelf.
That ends the first wall.
Now, turning the corner...
My sewing area, with a nice window above.
To the right you can see my thread storage, along with
a quilt rack that #2 son made me, which is
serving to hold some of my treasures from friends.
We've turned the corner again and here you can see the cabinet I use to store my
beads and also my cotton fabrics, along with some more 'stuff' on top.
This also shows the pull out couch which I share the room with. It will
be nice for me to sit here and read through my crafting books.
Above I've hung the crazy quilt pieces which I did a few years ago
using the colour suggestions from SharonB.
Now we've reached another corner. Below the lace tablecloth is one of my
sewing machines - which is doubling as a bedside table. As you can see there are a few things
sitting on the floor that still need to find a permanent home. The filing cabinet was given to me and is a huge organizational tool. You can see my 195o's sewing machine on top of the cabinet and also
my two art dolls - Shudayra and Annelaw.
Now we're turning the final corner...
Here is one side of my floor to ceiling closet. Here is where I have done some massive
shoehorning!! Everything is labelled so I can hope (!!) to be able to find what I'm
You can't see in this picture, but below that is where the cat litter box will
reside. I know, too much information!!
And here is the other side of my closet.
Now you're back to the doorway again.
I've managed to organize (and stuff!!) a room that measures a mere 10 x 11.5 feet.
I'm sure things will change as I start to use the space, but for now I'm pretty happy with it.
Hope you've enjoyed the tour.
If you click on the pictures, I think they will
embiggen for you.
