A Whole New World

I have a very exciting announcement to make. In about a month, I'll be leaving my job so I can focus on designing! Ok, I'm not exactly jumping off a financial bridge sans bungee cord. I'll still be working for Webs in a different, part-time capacity--enabling me to pay bills and all that good stuff. But there will be plenty of free time in my schedule which means more designing, more time on social media and definitely more time on here, which is something I've been severely neglecting. (Ahem. Sorry about that.)

In preparation I rearranged my bedroom. Meet my new bedroom-slash-studio!

photo 6I have no before pictures which is probably a good thing, because it was a lot messier before. But for reference--my bed was positioned where the rug is now, pushed up against the right side which you can't see in this photo since it's around a slight corner. I also had a bunny guest for an extended period of time whose luxurious daytime enclosure took up most of the space where my bed now lives. It may not look like much but I have my desk, my sewing machine and my yarn & fabric stashes, all of which used to live downstairs. And that floor space, with the cutest Ikea rug to boot! I've been sprawling out on it to sew (more on that in another post) and it is glorious. It functions beautifully as a backdrop for photos, which my Instagram feed will attest to.

In the spirit of new beginnings, I'm thinking of hosting a KAL in the near future. Something casual (with prizes of course), so if you are interested or have any thoughts on the matter head on over to my Ravelry group and answer a quick poll about KALs, won't you?
