Day 3 of the New Year

The third day of the New Year. Another day spent helping my mom, although I did get home a little earlier today. Still, very tired from some heavy duty work. I spent the rest of the day blowing my nose due to dust allergies. Well, I wasn’t going to let that hold me back. I got in the studio to work on emptying a few more boxes. Granted, I’m still … Continue reading

Day 2 of the New Year

Day two of the New Year. Day two of my new studio! I spent yesterday evening unpacking my main quilting fabric (prints and batiks) and putting it into the microscope cabinet. It has 30 cubbyholes. I had packed away two cubbyholes of fabric into each small size U-Haul boxes (which I numbered so I would know where to put them back), so it was a simple matter of filling the … Continue reading

Room of Requirement Day 6

After: last items boxed and cabinets wrapped

I’m tired, and I’m claiming victory! I think I have pretty much everything packed into boxes and ready to be stored away. This process took somewhat longer than I expected! I definitely forgot that I had some of that stuff. I’m thankful for my son-in-law, Eric, who has been storing this all away in his mom’s basement (thanks, Jill!). The library card catalog drawers are over there now, along with … Continue reading

Room of Requirement Day 5

After: Library card catalog wall

I had a few busy days since my last post. I might have been in the studio for a short time, but nothing worth writing about. Today I had a couple hours so I went in. Two year old Aliza was fast on my heels. Four year old Hazel wandered in after a bit. Aliza had to see my thread cabinet and look at all the pretty colors, so naturally … Continue reading

Room of Requirement Day 4

Library drawers

On Day 4 (counting only the days I can actually work in there) of packing up my studio, I wasn’t able to get in there until late in the afternoon, and my sweet 2-year-old granddaughter wanted to help! Who was I to say no? I decided an “easy” task would be to pack up the contents of my library card catalog drawers. These are the ones that DD#2 and her … Continue reading

Room of Requirement Day 3

After: big bookshelf

Today’s been a good day. I was able to get quite a bit done before lunch, take a break, and then continue in the afternoon. I know I’m making progress, but it’s a little scary to see all this stuff pile up and know that I still have a ways to go! Oh, my! How did all this stuff get in my studio? And this is after I did a … Continue reading
