Space and time (and money), there's never quite enough and you always have to juggle them to allow for whatever is the priority at the moment.
Time has been a priority lately, as I have been traveling cross-state to be with my mom during some health issues. Yesterday we got some very good news on that subject, so I'm both happy and relieved. But back at home, I have to work, I need to do some work around the house and I want to do a little Christmas decorating. And I want to play in my studio!
I got into the studio last night to finish a batch of fabric postcards to deliver to our business today. I'm hoping I'll get a few holiday sales. The hardest part about making these postcards is deciding when they are finished. I can always think of something else to do. A little more stitching on this one, add some beads on that one, stamp on another one. Finally I just had to say, enough, and finish them up.
By the time I did, my cutting table looked like a notions store had exploded. I set up my studio for sewing, and it still works pretty well for that (though too crowded), but other stuff is a challenge. The only space I have to work is my cutting table. Last weekend I was drooling over the artist's work table Michael's (hobby and crafts) had on sale – drafting table style table with side storage and even a stool. But I have absolutely no place to put it right now. (If I ever get my dream studio there will be space.....)
