If you're like me, you love seeing what other people's studios look like. Even home dec magazines are getting into it--more and more they are featuring photos of amazing creative work spaces. Well, I need to be honest here. I don't have a studio.Maybe that's not quite fair. Strictly speaking, anyplace where you create is your studio. So I'll amend my statement. I don't have a dining room.
There's good and bad to this arrangement. I'm pretty much looking at the front door all the time. No one can sneak in or out. Or sneak anyone ELSE in or out. I am in the center of all activity. It's very handy being next to the kitchen--snacks are readily available.
The downside? Well, it's not that great to have your ironing board be the first thing guests see when they come in. I've thought about getting one with pretty colored legs and making a darling board cover for it--you know, to coordinate with my slipcovered chair. But who am I kidding.
Here you can see the Late Bloomer Quilts pattern stuffing table. And you can also see our corporate Shipping Department. Like the pink bubble wrap? I think it's pretty. And if you look in the corner of the photo, you can see a second roll. My husband is very good at making sure I have PLENTY of bubble wrap.
That's Willard guarding the ever-important Late Bloomer Quilts files. Where I keep receipts from fabric purchases (note to self: we need another file drawer) among other things. The files are located right by the previously mentioned ironing board. And that's Willard's favorite spot. Right where I stand to press something. He's very elderly and can't see or hear too well and it's a wonder we haven't collided more often.
If you've been here before, you've probably met Presley. He's proof that a cat CAN and WILL sleep on pretty much anything. And I'll leave you with some good advice--if your cat is asleep on your rotary cutter it's time to quit for the day.
