One nice aspect of blogging is hearing from readers... they can really help me keep things in perspective... a positive perspective. So, while I am bluesy and glum about our housing lot, and moving my sewing room into the garage, I hear from blogging friends that I am lucky to have a cutting table... so true! and "ooohhh, the family creativity room (garage) sounds inspiring!" from my ever supportive friend Tarie, and I begin to see my circumstances in a much kinder light. Yesterday I got a taste of how cold it can get in the garage... brrrr, but as it comes together and I enjoy the pleasure of having room to spread out, I find myself feeling very, very happy about the "Creativity Room."
I am not taking a picture of my fabric stash. Tee Hee. I need a wide angle lens. LOL. OKay, seriously, I have a fabric addiction, which can come as no surprise to my fellow quilters and sewing sisters. But I have resisted any new purchases in recent
With Geoff's help, which makes it sound like I contributed, which I didn't, not significantly, a new closet was assembled yesterday.
Geoff is an engineer. I love it when he's an engineer. I'm so lucky.
Actually Maria may have been as much or more help than I was. She illustrated the back of the closet.
Surely good fortune and bright days will be ours, now that we have a closet cat. Look at his toes!
Now, in addition to a cutting table, a sewing table, a robot table and shelves of notions, glue and tools, I now have a fabric closet. I started filling it. And I will continue filing it later today, and then look out! I can envision such creations and projects and successes.
Inspiration? Oh, there is so much inspiration!
Just this morning the very talented Mamaspark sent me to meet Lynette Anderson, and I am totally smitten by her designs, her blog, Fatcat and Hugo. It's a quilting, stitching treasure trove.
And by all means let's make "Much Ado About Something." This blog, discovered thanks to Nikkipolani, is brimming with good news, beautiful photography and thoughtful reflection, and then she has 2 more blogs to unleash her passions and talents. For more of Sara's photography stop by "Come Away With Me." Chango and Benjamin recommend you visit Miss Kitty. She's a Norwegian Forest cat. Meow.
Then there's Lululollylegs, in Melbourne, stitching beautiful things. And can you hear "The Sound of One Hand Knitting?" The fun and beauty just goes on and on.
I am off to hammer some grommets into the security screen I designed for the garage door. What's inspiring you?
