Thank you so much to Etsy for featuring my studio on The Storque yesterday! I've been so flattered by all the attention the studio has been getting recently. Especially as it's still a space that I'm having to get used to and over the last few months I've realised that there are a few things that need changing in order for me to be able to work effectively and comfortably. The space is only 3 meters by 2 meters and I've had to fit a lot in, so I suspected that I might need to rework things once I was up and running and that's definitely become the case. The biggest problem that I've encountered is that there still just isn't the space, or at least the right type of space to cut fabric in. I've tried lots of different solutions, but have finally come to the realisation (with a little help from Jim) that whilst I love having all my books and magazines on hand, they are the one part of the studio that could be housed elsewhere without it affecting my day to day work. So as soon as I can shift a few things (everything) around in my bedroom to make way for the bookcase I'm going to move it out of the studio and then I'm going to buy another table to put in it's place to use solely as a cutting table. It will also free up more wall space, allowing for some more open shelves and space for a much needed blackboard. So whilst it will be a shame to have to move all the books, I've realised that the space can be used much more effectively. Which I think is the trick to creating the best work space possible - recognising that sometimes things just don't work the way you would like them to and that a relatively small shift can make things flow the way they should. Hopefully!
