Wow, it is very noisy here right now! There are people sawing holes in my roof!That makes it rather cold too. But I am downstairs behind the computer in the kitchen where it is nice and warm.
Yesterday I completely emptied my studio. It sounded hollow after that. You could hear your voice echo. All the wool and fabric that was there absorbed a lot of sound. Now everything is in boxes under a sheet of plastic. And I'm getting more light in there as I type!
Now is the time to think of new plans!
Small ones: I might make a bulletin board covered in fabric (idea on Sew Mama Sew) for my new studio.
Big ones: I might completely change the layout of the furniture in my studio and get new desks to work on.
I can not picture yet what the new space will be like. Maybe I'll already have a better idea tonight.
A wrap up of projects that I finished just before I had to empty my room:
I made an Austria-inspired backpack with a cozy for a thermos and a bag for snacks. Not from a pattern but all thought up by me.
It is inspired by Austria because we will have a ski and snow vacation there in about a week!
Valentine's Day was on my mind as well, while I was making this! (pssst, that's also my birthday!)
I will not be skiing, but I will be hiking, reading, taking in the views, and some hot tea and a piece of chocolate from time to time.
The rest of my family will do some skiing and after taking of their big boots, Damaris and Emil can put their feet in these new slippers I made for them from Amy Karol's Mailorder pattern.
Black and white for Damaris (not too girly, but color is still allowed) and with a red trim, and fabrics chosen by himself for their softness, for Emil.
One more photo: I had a lovely light yellow lunch the other day! On the left it is very well ripened cheese, on the right white chocolate hagelslag (sprinkles).
