We challenged Russell to use the “up” space. Scott is tall. He always says the world is built for short people.
We wanted accessible floor space without having to move a lot of furniture and stuff…for our nephew to play, for me to pin baste a quilt, for the dog to stretch out and just for the sake of space.
And, we had an inclination to use a vintage rolling library ladder…’cause they’re cool.
As we’ve been unpacking and moving into the studio space, this is how things look…the “pods” are the “up” storage space, accessible via a vintage rolling library ladder. There are seven pods altogether. The furtherest three to the left are deep and allow space for a single mattress+. This provides the option to sleep “up”. The deep pods have electrical outlets. We have mattresses for two of those three sleeping pods. They’ve not yet been used, and they may never be, but we wanted the choice. Meanwhile, they can serve as storage. ; )
To the left of this photo, on the wall opposite my desk, is my sewing area…see below…
To the left of this photo is Scott’s computer station and the “viewing wall.” We do not have a television, at all. Instead, Scott elected to go with a projector. We can watch DVD’s and stream from the net. The “screen” is eight feet. He did ALL the research and wiring…HDMI, speakers, components, etc. It’s crazy, but good. Shelby and Jingle aren’t sure what to make of it yet…?!
I also have been trying to take a few stitches every day. I am not always able to keep to that, but I am happy to report that I am making progress on Momma Barb’s hand applique block. It’s a KILLER!!! Seriously. A KILLER. But, stitches are stitches and I am GLAd for them!!! : )
P.S. Has anyone ever been to Manila? There is a remote possibility that I may travel there. Any thoughts, recommendations or guidance you could share would be appreciated. Thank you!
