Where Bloggers Create 2011 Part 3

Yes, this is my favorite room after the kitchen!!!  These pics are taken from the doorway as you enter....it was once the master bedroom.....I have moved into a smaller back bedroom now that the kids are gone.....

The windows face south....lotsa light, lotsa heat in the summer!!!  My cutting table is in the center so I can work on all sides......it is up on bed risers so it is waist high for me and very comfortable to work at.  Underneath on this side is all the packing supplies for wrapping and mailing, I could cover it all with curtains on a rod, but would just get in my way when working.......this is after  all, a working studio!!!


This is the other side of the table.....with all utility fabrics, batting, facings, etc., you can see my computer station on the back wall and my little TV, which is my company!!!  On top of the table I have placed an old cardboard drawer unit without the drawers placed on its side, and it houses all my painting supplies.  When painting here I use a large plastic tablecloth to cover the table.



My friend Pris came up with this storage idea for me......very clever I think!!!  Out of the way, yet handy....







Most of these items are gifts from friends and sentimental pieces.....the key is to my mother's steamer trunk when she immigrated from Italy....I just bought the thimble hook from JoAnns, is that too cute???  It holds my first ever tassel I made....Picture of my two kids......theorem painting, tons of fabric, many rabbits which I collect.....

I keep all elements of upcoming projects together in a basket or box, so I don't forget my original intent!!!  More to come......

I love the thimble hanger that you got at JoAnn's. I'm going to look for one of those. The tip about the bottle caps is fantistic. Thanks for sharing!

What a great idea to put your table up on bed risers.... I love having my table at the right height to work on.... however, it seems like many times I cut things out on the kitchen table anyway.... I guess I need to spread out!

Thanks for the tour... you made a great space that works...

Warm blessings,
Spencer

Loved looking at all your treasures. Your studio space is beautiful and I can see how you would get the inspiration to create working in that beautiful room.
