Living In My Studio

The photos you will see have not been staged. They show how I live and work in what one would call my great room.

Ice  dyes in the distance on the wall, couch and love seat. It gives me a chance to look at and study them and possibly get an idea of how to use them. Of course it also allows me to enjoy them and drink in the colors.  I guess it is pretty obvious this wasn’t staged with the vacuum cleaner in the photo! (Or maybe it was to make you think I vacuum!)
image
A big pile of recently dyed fabrics piled on the folded up cutting table that I tuck under the extension on the kitchen island.
image
A multipurpose area….viewing recently dyed fabric, roll of fabric for new cushions for old lanai furniture and pole rolling and cutting area on kitchen peninsula.
image
Sewing machine, works in progress and supplies that I need at hand.
image
Go cutter, supplies and scrap fabric bin to cut pieces in my “spare time”!
image
My computer and my knitting.
When I am able to see and live with my art in progress if sparks my creative juices and allows my brain to work to come up with yet more ideas.
I occasionally neaten up the “studio part” when I am having guests that need a place to sit or eat!
I also have “family” guests who just find a spot that is not covered to sit or a convenient place to eat or have dessert…you know who you are!

UPDATE: SINCE MANY OF YOU KNOW I AM A NUMBERS PERSON I WANT TO SHARE THAT THIS IS MY 1600TH BLOG POST!
