|Old windows with view.|
|It was 13' x 9'|
I ordered twelve recessed LED lights. The electrician convinced me that was too many. I have nine which is plenty. He didn't have a clue what was going on, he insisted that I should have two switches, I told him one was enough. I did notice that my one switch has an absolutely unnecessary dimmer. So I guess he got his way in the end.
My new space is large and I assumed that it would be easier to keep tidy! Wrong! I just have too much stuff! The cabinets in the background are full of fabric. I admit they're tidy. It's just too much trouble to sort and re-shelve fabric.The pile of stuff in the front, is a horizontal surface, what more can I say. It is supposed to be for cutting and ironing!
|Junk room, I mean closet.|
Then there is the closet. When I moved I thought what a perfect place for my pretties. You know thread, beads, sequins, doilies etc.. And some larger stuff ie: batting rolls. Again I just have too much stuff!
|UFO's to GO!|
Then there were the duplicates, mostly papers. Off to recycle they went.
I spent quite a bit of time labeling the drawers and doors. I will use them to help me remember what's where until I don't need them any more. (Or Forever???). I put like things together. All the marker, interfacings, stabilizers, etc are now together.
|New view from the window|
I love the new view, besides the trees there are people, lots of them means people watching is great! And if I drank coffee, Starbucks is just a block away.
|The view from my machine|
I have two work walls inside the studio, which means that when I am finished for the day, I can close the door!
Probably my largest hoard (I mean collection) is the thread, here you see size 50 neutral and colored thread. I use it mostly for piecing, but some quilting too. The other five boxes of thread are in the closet.
I know it doesn't look like it, but I did clean it out. The batting seems to be the biggest problem...guess I need to sew more!!!
What do I love about my studio? I feel at peace there.
