the studio

DSC_0005_2214

Here it is!  I have some tweaking to do – painting the rocking chairs and sewing up some seat cushions for them, maybe a rug for the winter months, finishing the chalkboard paint on the stairs, repainting the old dressers that I’ll be using for storage,  finding a cheap bookcase for all of my books and magazines, putting my sewing machine at one of the workspace stations, and filling up my inspiration wall behind the workspace.  The small table by the window is set up with a fabric cutting mat, and I’ll store my wool and wool felt in the cedar chest below it.  I’ll actually be moving an old library card catalog to the space between the rocking chairs to hold nature treasures in.

 So, that’s the progress so far.  When it’s all finished I will post pictures again.

On a very somber note I think every parent should read this article.  I will warn you ahead of time it was written by Susan Klebold, the mother of  Dylan Klebold one of the Columbine killers.   It is painful, heart wrenching, thought-provoking, and filled with one mother’s humble cries.  I can’t imagine.
