Not So Much Ta-Da...
It now seems like ages ago I promised to show you my reconfigured studio which accommodates my new woolly direction in life and I apologize for the delay. As it is one of those cloudy windy cold New England days I thought running around the studio with camera in hand might just be the ticket for accomplishing something from my to-do list!
Yes, that is a little space heater in the left hand corner and bet all your donuts that she is cranking out heat - oh - glorious - heat!!! My studio is one of the coldest rooms in the house and that little space heater is the only thing between me and frostbite!
My wall of creativity
Abigail my spinning wheel and in the background is my
Ashford drum carder whom I have yet to name... OK, if truth be told I did name her
but I can't remember what it was, lol!
Some things that I still need to put up for sale in my Etsy shop that are
bits and bobs of my mixed media and jewelry making life... note to self, add
to to-do list
My desk which I had wanted to remove completely so I could have
my spinning wheel and loom sitting in the middle of the room. However,
I remembered I still like to quilt now and again so the desk top stayed, for now!
Good place for my laptop and Raphael's basket - he keeps me company in the winter and
sleeps in his basket - summertime I can't pry him off the porch... guess I can't blame him. :D
My swift and ball winder, which I do not regret one smidge!
This is on the left when you first enter my studio and that pink scarf is from Vicki over at
2 Bags Full. I wanted one of her Breast Cancer Awareness nests but didn't sign up in time... at the last minute the very last person to pick up their nest decided they didn't want it, "I know, gasp"... anywho, so I got lucky and bought it! My first Vicki nest, woohoo! I'll show off my nest in a separate post later on.
My $50 velvet rocking chair find on Craig's List and this fab ottoman from Kohl's for
only $34.00! It's filled with little pea sized bits of I think Styrofoam so it's uber light weight and
ever so soft and squishy... just the thing for tired tootsies :D
Last but definitely not least - my rectangle loom arrived! Yippee!
Alas she doesn't fit in the studio so I have made part of the porch
an extension of my studio and don't you think she looks just fabulous out here?!
I think this kind of view goes with weaving somehow... yes, yes, I've already begun playing
with her as you can see (giggle)! Now all I need to add is a 7 foot triangle loom and we are all set...
I'm thinking of trying to make it myself... but I'm beginning to wonder if I'm insane what with all those nails! Sure would save a bundle of money that I could put towards yarn - oh glorious yarn!!! :D
