2017 AND MOVING FORWARD...

It has been a while for posting and will be catching up...we had a parent chapter that became a 24/7 thing for 5.8 years.....we have moved....my studio is 2/3rds gone...boxes and bins waist high and still working on getting things in order with the studio and house.   I think it will take about a year to DOWN SIZE the entire contents of our house and STUDIO.  This was a winter move and took us 3months...we had our parent's house to hoe out and then OUR stuff...just plain ran out of good weather months to work with....LOL SO MOVING FORWARD...KEEP ON STITCHING!!!

GETTING ORGANIZED...

GETTING ORGANIZED...The first thing is the work area.  The room is half done and looking forward to changing the rest!  I just wanted to change the curtains to the winter coverage and  kept tripping over things and still not able to reach the windows...enough...thus began the project of change.  It is nice to have the room and tables.  The room space is a rectangle shape and currently only half of the room is presentable. It is time for change when your work space trips you from being productive!  The lighting is now great at night, the storage containers are no longer at my feet while I sew, and the cutting area/work space is now useable from both sides.  I can reach all windows for cleaning and moving geraniums to their summer place.  The winter drafts are now blocked with under the table storage. The true test will be working in the new space...more later.
BEFORE... TWO TABLES TOGETHER FOR CENTER SPACE

AFTER...TABLES IN U SHAPE


NOW THERE IS MORE SPACE TO MOVE AROUND!
