In the past I’ve shared many pictures of my studio as I reorganized it.
Today I am going to share some pictures of what it looks like when I am in working mode.
In this picture you can see my entire design wall as well as a lot of areas of the studio.
Another view of a major portion of the studio with some projects I’m planning on working on soon.
I use this bed to store both finished quilts and works in progress. You can see some of both here, as well as one I need to photograph.
This area contains my hand dyed fabrics…mostly shibori and ice dyed pieces. In the background you see my yarn and books.
Here is the quilt I just finished quilting on my pressing table. On the wall is a HUGE quilt that just needs the top part of the design added and then it will be ready for quilting.
I’m just about ready to add the facings to this quilt.
You may think this is quite a mess, but it is really organized in a way that I know what I will be doing next. It also allows me to study works in progress to decide how I want to proceed on them.
If things get to the point where I am no longer organized then it is time to stop and straighten things out before I proceed. Fortunately the last studio reorganization has made it a lot easier to deal with projects as I finish them and put things I don’t need for what I will be working on where they belong.
It IS a pleasure to be working here now and I am making great progress finishing pieces I started anywhere from a year to 15-20 years ago.
