This weekend was time for a long-overdue cleaning of the studio. Things have been piling up around my ears since October, when I returned from the Anna Corba workshop and got into that bender of creating things for the December craft faire.
I was in Bellingham and picked up a bunch more exquisite ephemera while there, then we have been doing Bad Art Night and that meant I could justify leaving art materials out because it was just going to be pulled out again in a few days.
Saturday, I just committed to putting a few things away. That quickly turned into everything getting re-stowed, sweeping the floor and tackling a large bag of yarn that my cat-like dogs had tangled together. I was kidding myself to think I was going to rewind these balls. It was difficult to sacrifice yarn to the garbage, but I just couldn't bear to deal with it. The only consolation was that I got a really good deal on the yarn to begin with.
I was rewarded with a spectacular sunset through the top of the garage door windows. Saturday during the day, I used the IKEA tool to design a new studio for the new house. I probably won't paint the walls pink, but it was fun to play with the wall tool.
