Studio Update : :

Late last week I had mentioned how messy my studio was becoming and added a few pictures of the clutter here. I ended up spending a good part of that day making some changes -- I took some new photos yesterday, and thought today that I should share.

So, once again, come on in...


That door straight ahead really needs some curtains, doesn't it? I decided to make my main shelf here just for my fabrics.

I made a little space dedicated to just the new fabrics... they deserve their own spot, don't they?

Where I use to have my home decs wasn't working, so I added them to the fabric shelf as well and turned that drying rack into a make-shift shelf for my buttons, sewing and knitting books, and the hoops that my boys had made last year.

Here is what it all looks like from my sewing desk... Much nicer than this, I think.

Across the room, I rehung the project piping clothes line and made room for my bottled rainbows atop my yarn shelf.

You can see all the photos I took of my room here, these are a few of my favorites...

During all of the picture taking I could hear someone little rustling under my desk, trying not to giggle, waiting for just the right moment to frighten his mama...

He thinks he's scary? c'mon
