I'm halfway through a major overhaul of my studio (the spare bedroom minus the bed) and there are some things I've learned:
It takes many attempts to get a studio to fit your needs, especially when those needs keep changing/growing.
You find things you'd forgotten about...which makes you want to do them again which will bring another 'need' into the studio.
When you finally put your huge professional printer away in a closet you realise it prints onto CDs....which you wanted to do but your HP printer wasn't equipped for.
Painting, knitting, beading, polymer claying, crocheting, tatting, sketching, sewing, paper marbling, photography.....I do way too many artsy/crafty things that take up space.
I do need a designated area where I can keep all my finished pieces too.
Anyway...the finds in the clean up were these two crochet patterns...written and swatches done.....boy, it would be nice if I'd made those up.
For anyone who doesn't know...I used to be a knitwear designer before I moved to the States. I was born and lived in the textile area of England so it was quite the norm for me to go to the mills to buy yarn and one of the major yarn companies used to buy my patterns at the end of my season.
That was how I got into beads....my sweaters were embellished with beads and some had them knitted in.
I love making lace, whether it be knitted, crocheted or tatted...oh if I only had the time....
