This is the place where I'll be hanging out a good bit of the time from now on! YAYYY! My wet studio is now just about complete and I really love how it turned out! The big change is the set of windows over my counterspace and the coat of lemon yellow paint on the walls. I've also cleaned out and culled a ton of stuff that I've found I no longer use in my dyeing.
Here is how the same space used to look:
The one thing I've toyed with doing but opted not to do is have the floor painted. I've learned that painting concrete floors requires etching first and then painting. With all of the heavy cabinets and paraphernalia that I have in my space, it would be a huge headache to accomplish....and also more time away from my dyeing! So maybe in my next life I'll have the floors painted in my studio! Besides, this way I won't agonize over spilt dyes!
Last night I made this yummy pizza. MMMMM! I used the Chicken, Red Grape and Pesto recipe out of the September Cooking Light, and a wonderful whole wheat pizza crust recipe from the New York Times. I'll try to get both recipes printed up on my cooking blog in the next day or two. The pizza crust is easy and can be prepared up to 3 days in advance. The recipe makes two crusts, and one can be prepared and then frozen. That's my kinda cookin' for sure!
Ruth Powers was the guest speaker at my quilt guild yesterday morning. Since I know and love
Ruthie Powers of Next Signal Designs, I thought it important that I go meet Ruth Powers, admire her works, and hear her lecture. She is a very interesting person and her designs are fabulous. I think her poppies were my favorites.
All in all, it was a great day for me........hope it was for you as well!
PEACE TO YOU
