No news from the realtor which in my mind means that we won’t be moving any time soon. Unlike last Saturday, today it was very windy and it rained all day. Great weather to stay indoors and do something creative.
I’ve been wanting to rearrange my studio for some time now and today seemed like the perfect day. All our outdoor garden work is finished so we decided to tackle both Mr. Painted Quilt’s office and my studio. We started moving things around which allowed me to vacuum and dust in hard-to-get-at-places, emptied out some cupboards, traded book shelves and made piles for trash, donations and recycling.
Three hours later, we were done! Come with me and I’ll take you on a tour.
This is the farthest right corner of my studio.
As we proceed counter clockwise around the room, you can see my sewing station next.
Both the cupboard in the corner and the Hoosier to the left of it are filled with fabric and supplies.
Next and to the left of the Hoosier is my Featherweight station with more fabric and wool stored in the bins below. The white magnifying lamp on the right side of the table is a life saver for those small stitchery projects. I used to use this for the tiny detailed work in my paintings.
This is my computer station where right now I am composing this post on my new laptop. Can you see me waving at you all?
Next is my antique treadle machine along with some of my favorite sewing memorabilia displayed on and around it.
And here we’ve come to where we started. This pine cupboard used to house our television but now it’s storing more of my fabric and wool. The shaker table that used to be in my studio is now displaying Mr. Painted Quilt’s favorite toy…his television…and of course, remote control.
And there you have my newly rearranged sewing studio. The color in the photos is a little yellow because they were taken at night and without any natural light. It is actually very bright during the day.
I don’t know about you but I always feel so inspired after a good tidying up and reorganization. I did manage to get some stitching in this afternoon as well. I’m working on December’s FFF (First Friday Freebie) which I hope to finish tomorrow. November’s is already done and is ready to be released on November 6th, the First Friday of the month. I think you’re going to like it.
Now I’m going to make myself a cup of tea and enjoy the rest of the evening. Thanks for accompanying me on my tour.
