Studio to work?
Last year I had a emergency hospital stay that, thankfully revealed no problems. The cause was deemed to be stress; my hubby and I decided to quit our job--both working together about 60 hours each week and living where we worked! We moved out and into my daughters home and started looking for other jobs. Little did we know that the downturn in the economy was upon us and it took months to get a part time job and a commission only job that is really the pits! Anyway, we are still living with my daughter by necessity. I lovingly say: "we live in a studio apartment with a bathroom down the hall!" We took over their family room. With most of our stuff in storage, we make do with a desk and book cases for my husbands study, a recliner with the TV on a chest of drawers, and of course a bed. Where do I create, you say? Well, I have a sofa table that sets up against the other chest of drawers that holds my sewing machine. I sit on the bed and pull it up close to sew. I have stacks of boxes in a corner, with all my fabrics. I use an ironing board for beading. I set it up in front of the recliner to work. It's not pretty, but it works! Oh to have more space! Maybe sometime soon!
