Studio Time

That right there? It’s a panorama of my studio taken with my iPhone. That means it’s all warped, but you can at least see everything except the door and tool racks behind me. It’s still very much in process of becoming, but I’m starting to use it.

Today I made a pressing board! I started with an Ikea hollow-core table top, some batting, some fabric (which was also an Ikea deal) a staple gun, tack hammer and scissors. Quick montage below— there are lots of tutorials on the web for doing this sort of thing:

I then promptly covered it in fabric:

That right there? Is my winter wardrobe. Or will be, soon. Hopefully at least a substantial fraction will be used before we leave for Texas. In a week. Nothing like a deadline for motivation!
