Sewing space in the middle of all the pulling apart.
So I was thinking, I need to admit who I actually am, how I work, and build my space around that. The dinning table is now set up for screen printing, not eating, and so people who come over will know that I eat at the coffee table... so what. I got rid of all the education textbooks I used last year in the dip ed, because someone else can use them, and I'm not, no matter how many hundreds of dollars they cost me. I moved the stereo, which sad to say I rarely use these days, and replaced it with all the beautiful, big, hardcover art books Joe and I own, which had been sitting at the top of the linen cupboard, neglected for just over 2 years now. Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Whitely, Dada, street art, Russian Expressionism, here we come. And one of Joe's beautiful landscape paintings has taken centre stage in the lounge room. This place is looking more like a workspace with some living areas in it, and that's what it really is. We don't ever really just sit around and chill out, we are always making, reading, looking at pictures, testing, doing, and so we need to be able to use every square inch effectively.
And it feels good! I'll take photos when everything is sorted.
Hope Friday is good for you, and remember to check out all the other creative spaces at and through Kootoyoo!
