Well, the studio is all unpacked now, and with the exception of some quilts that I don't have a home for, it is done. Here is the tour:
We'll start with the door, which is set at an angle to the room. I have my fused fabric stored on the back of the door here. To the right is my cutting table.
The wall behind my cutting table is where I plan to install my pin-up wall.
This shelf in the corner used to be in my daughter's room, but it didn't work in the new house. So, now it houses my fabric scrap bins.
The futon chair used to be in my daughter's room, too, but it's so comfortable I didn't want to part with it. It doesn't really fit in my studio well, and is currently storing all the quilts I couldn't fit elsewhere. Must sell these or get them up on the walls...
Here is the bookshelf from the previous studio, and my sewing table. Took these pictures at night. It's a nice view. I'll post it tomorrow.
This dresser was given to me, along with its twin, by my friend Akiko. Since this room has no built in closet (honestly, where would it go?), this seemed like a good solution for all the stuff I had put away at the other place.
And back to where we started from. You can tell, I think, that this room is very small compared to the last place. It's been a challenge to find space for everything, and we've had to get rid of some things. That's always a good thing, isn't it? Should make our return to the states go a little easier if we have fewer possessions.
So that's all for the tour today. There will be more to see tomorrow.
