Studio Clean Up

Mrs Muir, an elderly neighbour of mine who was a gifted and accomplished seamtress and knitter passed away last fall. Her son and daughter-in-law, who are working on the house to get it ready for sale, had to get rid of Mrs Muir's sewing stash and were more than happy (and generous) to let have whatever I wanted. I brought home three big garbage bags full of fabrics and notions, dumped them on my studio floor and let them sit there for a couple of months. The place looked like an episode of the TV show "Hoarders". No wonder I haven't felt like going in there to do something creative.

This weekend, hubby and I were at a yard sale. I spotted a teak chest of drawers that I knew would fit right on top of a teak cabinet that already resides in my studio. That way, I would have more storage space for all those scraps of fabric I collect, without taking up any more precious floor space. Best part - it only cost me $5.00.

So now that things are all cleaned up in there, I feel a creative surge coming on.

And I couldn't post and not include a few doggie pictures. Della, taken by my sister with her new Smart Phone.

Oh my gosh Inga! That teak chest is perfect. It looks great on top of the one that was already there. The room looks neat and inviting-bet we see some new things soon!
