Studio Update


I couldn't resist starting to move stuff into the studio now that I am home.
Of course I don't have time to do it properly as we are getting ready for the Sydney Craft and Quilt fair which moves in on Monday (eek - only 4 days to go).

That line across the room in the middle on the floor is where the wall was but it was great that the floorboards went all the way under it. Interestingly 100 years of being covered by a wall created a definite line which is a reminder of it's history. The floor also definitely slopes down at that point and so any dropped beads will find themselves in the centre of the room.


But of course the beads just had to be moved in.

Still need to hang some quilts on the walls, cover the 3m design wall, work out the office area vs the sewing area vs the playing area and just generally work out a work flow.
However - it feels great and the light and space are incredible.

that is a disgusting size....you should not make me so envious at this hour of the day.....LOL
It looks fabulous. Have a wonderful time in there.
Am particularly envious as I have a new computer and moved out stuff from under the table....that is back and tidy but somehow the dining room table is not...the cutting table is not....and I really do not know where to start for once.

It looks fab Lisa. I'm sure the creativeness would be a lot easier in such beautiful surroundings. Gotta show this to DH!! Alison

Enjoy the space, looks great.
Dragon Eyes is 'published' in APQ this month. Will see you at the show next week, will have to come and see the my quilt hanging, you would think they could send me a free ticket eh, or even send me a magazine - I had to buy one!!
The price of success ( if somewhat limited!!!)

Oh it looks wonderful!!! And it must have been one big room originally too if the floorboards keep going under where the wall was. The slope probably means you need a few new stumps there :-( tho the bead catching thing is a good positive way to look at it!!!
Thanks for showing us the WIP.
Hugs,
Jas
