I knew I shouldn't have bought STUDIOS magazine!
Now I want to re-work my studio space. I mean a radical re-work. Am I nuts? I'm a visual person (surprise, surprise!). I operate under the premise that if I don't see it, then it doesn't exist. Case in point, me forgetting I had the mistyfuse to turn my UFO into UFDone. Well, I'm still not there, but I made huge progress on that project.
Anyway, I digress. There were two reasons I bought this magazine. The first being that the thread display on the cover told me to buy it. Second, I wanted to read the article by Victoria Findlay Wolfe. She's one of my favorite quilting bloggers!
While I don't have a large stash compared to others, I am very uncomfortable with the amount of unused fabric I have. (Hence, my Lenten fast). I'm thinking that more I see my fabric, the more inspired I will be to sew and use my existing stash.
I don't want to proceed into this thing willy-nilly. I just want a way I can accomplish getting more of my stuff out from drawers and into my line of sight. Any thoughts out there? Basically my room is about 11x11 and I have two large sewing machines that I need to have available. I also require a large worktable. I've got the worktable and it's at the right height.
I also need space for other crafts, like painting and drawing.
I'm thinking a taller, more open shelving system will work better for me. What'dya think? I also have a closet that runs just short of the width of the room. I've been toying with just taking the doors off and putting shelving in there, along with a temporary light.
