A Studio Confession…

As you walk in the door.

Seems appropriate for a Friday the 13th. 🙂 My confession – My studio is beyond a mess. 🙁

A year ago I realized that my studio needed some serious attention. Despite working toward that goal, I’ve failed in that, but have a renewed push toward that direction.

Recently I’ve been going through my yarns, realizing that many of them = especially the cheaper varieties, were purchased for specific reasons that just aren’t going to happen — hair for “tribaret” or tribal dance costumes, for example. So I’ve started giving it away. I’m keeping the sock yarn – I still knit socks! And the yarn for one or two specific projects. I also haven’t decided what to do with the undyed lace yarn. I may skein it and dye it for embroidery. It’s very thin crewel-like.

But last week I came home with my dream drawing table — the one I’ve wanted for 20 years. And realized that although I’ve gone through SOME of the yarn, and the studio was usable for a while, it needs a concerted effort to turn it into a place of business. And that’s really what it needs to be. So LOTS more weeding to do – it’s now unusable entirely because of this! – and some serious rebuilding. First step – get the air conditioning fixed up there – it’s been unusable in the heatwave for the last three weeks, just on the basis of temperature.

  1. Well, you made me feel not so bad – that I’m not the only one! But I feel a tad guilty about reminding you of all the stuff you have already to make some sun printing!!

    Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting on the ALMBD list.

    • Hee hee. Don’t feel guilty about reminding me about things I have. I love sun printing, and love using it in my work. I think it’s time to do a bit of playing in an area of the house that isn’t the studio! 🙂
