New Studio...a work in progress

I had no idea it had been over a month since my last post...what have I done with the time besides moving 250 miles and getting cataract surgery in both eyes? Not much.

But progress is being made. All of my studio stuff is under one roof, the rest of the house is coming together, and soon I will be able to make art again.

I have a large space available, but with less storage already in place. So I've been making some decisions about that. I thought about neat and orderly, all alike cabinetry. But it wasn't just the money that stopped me. I kind of like the mismash of things I have, the controlled chaos of it. I'm not sure how easy it would be to create in a neat (sterile, even) space. So I'm sticking with the hodge podge, the in your face boxes and tubs and such. It's a space for me, that I need to be comfortable in (note the beach chair already in place)...besides, it's more 'green' to make do with what I have.

On another note, Strata 3 (not yet on my website) was accepted into the SAQA IL/WI regional show, Prime, Primary, Primordial. The show debuted last weekend at the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza, and travels next to the World Quilt and Textile show in Manchester, NH (Sept. 18-21). My art gets out and about more than I do.

no cabinets, okay but you should still go to Ikea. You might change your mind:)

Ikea, Ikea. Doesn't fit into my current mindset of lowering my consumption...but it is nearby :)
