I am one of the lucky who have a dedicated studio space and a door with which to hide it from the world. But I traded it in six months ago for the opportunity to host a foreign exchange student. It was totally worth it, but now that our student has returned to her permanent home, and our post holiday visitors have left, it’s time to reclaim my sewing space!
The space behind the “design wall,” and the space under the window was filled with bins of fabric. Luckily I had the room to myself as hubby was deployed during most of the time the bedroom was serving dual duty, so I could be as messy as I could tolerate.
The BIG DEAL: a purged and tidy fabric stash! I have learned to accept that I will always have a large amount of supplies to schlep wherever we go, but I think that confining it to just one closet is a good nod to practicality.
With half of my stuff in the bedroom and half in the “studio” room for nearly a week, I was going crazy, so I set aside all my in-progress projects and finished the move. My cutting table isn’t ideal, but it’s what works in this room. I hope to decrease the piles of stuff on the futon soon!
Now, back to work as I have several looming deadlines, and now I have a dedicated space in which to reach them.
