So one of the best things about the new house?

I have my own studio.

(And whenever I say I’m going to my studio, I immediately think of this random reality tv moment I saw last summer. One, be forewarned, it’ll get stuck in your head.  And two, it’s worth it to watch to the second half of the video to see how context can change a song.)

I’ve co-opted the first floor bedroom, which used to belong to a baseball fan.

Downstairs Bedroom

Thus far, we’ve only had the opportunity to remove the wallpaper (fortunately one easily-removable layer), so the room is far from finished, but I needed to set up and do some sewin’. So I figured I’d show it in it’s current state.

Studio (for Now)

The bears really make it.

Studio (for Now)There’s great natural light during the day and there’s plenty of space for my cutting table and all the other stuff. There might even be extra space, except…

there’s one thing more:
New additionI bought a loom.

Loom!

It’s a 36inch four heddle Harrisville that I got used at a really great price on Sunday, thanks to a tip from Bristol. I haven’t done anything with it yet except drool, but soon and very soon.

I’m so excited!!!
