Studio Update

October's challenge was a nudge in the direction of taking photos of my transformed studio space. I meant to do this in August after I completed the painting and moved my fabric into the new room. But September was busy.

I tried to complete the black and white quilt for the online challenge but it fought me every step of the way. I let it fester in the old studio space while I moved fabric, paint supplies and furniture.

And I have to confess, I still haven't moved everything out of the other room. I promised myself I wouldn't move things until they had a home. Bad idea--there are bits and drabs on the floor still waiting for a home. And look at how messy my new space is already. Did you see how neat Sharon's is? I'm shamed I tell you. Shamed.

And in the old studio, bookshelves are up, books moved and a comfy chair in place in front of the corner fireplace. Which I'll be able to use once I take the quilts off the hearth and actually put them away like I'm supposed to.

How does this translate into fabric? Hum, guess that's why it's called a challenge.
