    Studio Reset!

    We moved into our house 5 years ago and I threw my studio together. I didn't have the time to organize anything or make it "work". So I decided that this spring was the time to get it together.

    The first picture was the BEFORE picture (I won't bore you with a panagraph view - the rest of the room was a bad as this).

    The second picture - I tore everything out of the room EVERYTHING. And then rebuilt it from the ground up.

    The third picture is the finished wall of stash. I still have a definite need for more space but this looks pretty good to me. I can SEE my fabrics!!

    And the fourth picture is the area where I sew. I have the bench under the window (where the cat likes to lay and nap). I have another project laying on it - ready to finish.

    Thanks for looking!

    I know when I re-did my room, and then took another bedroom and made it the cutting and ironing room, I slept better at night because of the organization. Won't ever go back to digging stuff out of totes. Even if I have to leave things astray after finishing a project or have to walk away from it all for awhile, I go down there every now and then, straighten it all up and I feel so much better. Your studio looks very inviting!

    Carrie,

    That was a time consuming chore I am sure, but it looks very neat. All those pretty fabrics. Where's the cat? I really like cats and enjoy the avatars and pictures with cats in them.

    Awesome! Isn't it GREAT to have a nice, clean space all your own to sew in? I have the space... now I just need to make it clean again... LOL! Thanks for showing us your new space!

    I noticed you have a cutting table from JoAnn's. I have one and it is so wobbly I wonder if it is going to collapse. Do you have any suggestions on how to make it more sturdy. I really like it but needs to be more stable.

    It's beautiful. How long did it take you? I'm sure you find it more peaceful and fun to look at it, but in truth, while it was a bit "catywampus" before, I didn't think the before was "THAT" bad. ;0

    It looks wonderful. It's so hard to keep our sewing rooms in order. Because every time we work in there, we mess it up again. You have a wonderful sewing room. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow, you did a great job! I know that was a lot of work! But don't it feel good to get it done!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?
