My studio will never be one of those beautiful, highly organized places that appear in magazines, but at least I have some clean surfaces for the moment. I tend to start my year with a big clean-up, but as soon as I start working, there will be piles again.
I am lucky to have a good-sized studio space. One half of the room is devoted to fabric.
The other half has my painting area. And my faithful bulldog, Jack.
I have a nice design wall behind my sewing machine, but I tend to accumulate notes and snippets of ideas there rather than design on it.
I always admire open shelves of fabric with neatly organized stacks of color. But the reality is my fabric looks like this once I've been working, and the closed doors are the only thing that keeps it looking neat.
I clear the surfaces between projects and as long as I have space to work, I'm happy.
I just signed up for a free online workshop with Traci Bautista. I've taken her classes in person, and she's always fun and playful. If you're interested, you can check it out here.
