Someone asked a while back about seeing pictures of the sewing room/ studio since I had gone to the trouble of cleaning it up. Mind you, I haven't had any celebrities drop in lately, but here are the pictures anyway. Clean is a relative thing, but this is as good as it gets for me. I have tried three or four different rooms, and this is the current one. I still actually move all over the house, yard, and garage as needed depending on what I am doing. Sometimes I just need that really bright light from the kitchen skylight and the space on that huge table. Sometimes I want to take "yard pictures" and I see potential art quilts or computer generated images for fabric (I am experimenting with that). If I am dyeing fabric, then that has to be outside or in the garage. On the RARE occasion that I do handwork, it might be in the family room with my husband while he watches TV. So, I daydream about having a fantastic studio one day, complete with longarm quilting machine,like THIS. In the meantime I make use of what I have. If I waited for everything to be "perfect" I'd never make any art at all, and think of all the joy I would miss.
