studio makeover

Its taken me a few days to get into the swing of the makeover. First there was the emptying of the cupboards (scary), then the wait for the menfolk to help me shift them (I ended up doing the first one myself-no mean feat), I then had to go through fabrics and toss just a few to make some room for the overflow (not a fan of the overflow). I knew in my head which ones I wasnt that fond of, things id had for years, just a matter of performing the ritual of bagging them and putting them on the front porch for the girls to look through when they come on friday for our sewing afternoon. I havent gotten around to telling you about that yet but they have been happening on the odd week.

Now, the ultimate space for me is industrial in its simplicity and I definitely dont like girly. Just a workroom aesthetic with big clear tabletops.

I have a clock to sometimes time my sewing, not necessarily to see what the time is. Like, I try to challenge myself do a task that takes me 20 minutes in 15. Sometimes I almost sew over my fingers if im tired so I dont really recommend it.

I thought I wanted an artwork but now im not sure. I think after looking through the photos I prefer it without.

There are quite a few makeovers going on at the moment. Ive seen three so far this past week.

Happy sewing to you all.

So proud of you. Those fabric bits will be used for someone else's projects and won't be weighing your floors down anymore. Love the way youre table tops go back so far. Plenty of room to push fabric through. Cherrie

Beccasuaras and I were just talking about your makeover over lunch today. There must be something in the air!
I'm undecided about artwork in my space too. I'm quite liking the white look so that I don't get distracted.
