*** HOME STUDIO UPDATE ***
I am so excited to report the progress of my in home artist's studio. I have worked nonstop for days in getting a studio area in my home completed. When I get a vision and am motivated, look out. With the help of my husband, IKEA, and a lot of hard work and heavy moving, a former weaving area has been transformed into into a beautiful little studio and work area for knitting and spinning. Here are a couple of pictures.
The biggest dilemma in this whole project was the presence of a very big loom in this area and more importantly, how to move it. Well, where there's a will, there's a way. Paul and I took some of the heavier parts off the loom and then we strategically moved it through the back slider and around the house, inching along, stopping often, and finally made it to the front of the garage. (All of this in the dark about 9:00 p.m. last night.) I can't figure out yet what to do with this loom, since I have two more looms upstairs, but selling it might just break my heart. Well, that decision is for another day.
I now have three great work areas. My dyeing studio was just recently reorganized with new work tables and storage cabinets out in the sunroom off the back of my home. And, upstairs in one of the spare rooms is my weaving studio. And now this new spinning and knitting area. I'm looking forward to having friends stop by.
