Maybe its the sunshine, or the gentle breezes. Maybe its the luxurious flora or the deep blue ocean panorama. Whatever. Or maybe just unpacking SO many boxes, and fixing furniture and deciding what goes where. Or facing a big box of parts and trying to put together a long arm frame. Whatever. It's taking a while, but I'm enjoying the process. Herewith some photos of a studio coming to life.
The second one shows the east wall with shallow built in shelves for my smalerl pieces of fabric (wall is 20 feet wide by 16 feet high. An embarrassing amount of fabric
and provides an uninterrupted panorama.
I hope I'm inspiring you to organize. It's all the little stuff, endless embellishments, threads, paints , tools etc. Thank goodness I have a second wet studio, which I can't show you yet at all because it is piled high with stuff, and a big bookcase in our entry hall for all my art and quilting books
Nothing like moving to make me realize how much stuff I have many multiples of, because of buying the same stuff again and aigain because I couldn't find it. Nine sets of watercoor pencils? 14 rotary cutters? 22 scissors? It goes on and on.
And this is after donating 24 boxes of stuff before leaving California..
It remains to be seen if I will actually get any artwork or quilting done or just lounge on the lanai with the
trade winds blowing and read books
We are meeting lots of nice people here. I hope some of them like to play with fabric or paint
Well, I'll post more photos when it's all set up. My friend Kathne is coming next week to help set up, decorate, hang pictures, etc. Then we are off to California for a few weeks.
We should be ready for more visitors by mid November. Let me know when you want to come
Hopefully someone will fall in love with our beautiful Chico home and studio, and buy it. This is your chance!
