These are TWO different ones!
But fortunately, the only time I need to use it as a guest room is when the family comes to visit - 5 or 6 times a year. I have another guest room for use when only one person or couple comes to visit, so my studio can remain in whatever condition it seems to be in at any given time. The problem, however, is that I can't stand it when it gets completely out of control. And then it behooves me to clean it up.
Yarn is one thing! It often occupies the bed, the counter, to say nothing of all the drawers built especially to house my stash. And then there are the bins that I've added to store bags of yarn that is color-coordinated for use with a number of my designs. Yarn also often occupies my kitchen counter and the family room couch for work in progress! And BTW, all the felting supplies live in yet another area of my house - one that also houses my washer/dryer and myriad other things. It is erroneously called the "laundry room!" - yet another joke!
I LOVE it when the studio is clean, the floor and bed are visible, and the counters are neatly arranged. And I did some re-arranging, coordinating, and tossing! My fear now is that I will no longer be able to find anything in the de-cluttered environment!
"The Saga of the NEW Photos!") And then I posted them on Facebook, and THEN......one of my favorite customers wanted one! I'm certainly not complaining, but since these are designated for a delightful shop in Taos, it means that I need to make her a new one and THAT means I have to pull apart my studio for this next creation of the Tee-Upcycle Scarf!
You know what? I really love designing these, and I'm really grateful to HAVE a studio that lives in the FROG. A FROG???? In the South, that's a Finished Room Over Garage, AKA Bonus Room. It is out of sight, but never out of mind! And occasionally, it is sparkly clean. Photos of before and after coming soon!
