Fresh start.

A new year and a fresh start... the Christmas decorations are down and packed away and I've been on a clearing up frenzy (mostly to keep warm) and I've transformed this...

into this! I still need to reorganise all that shelving but at least I can see the surface of my desk again and walk across the floor without tripping up.


Which is just as well because tomorrow I start my next degree module...

Embroidery for Fashion.

I'm looking forward to my bedtime reading!

  3. My 'workroom' is in a terrible state. I think our decorations have a day or two left yet, unless the girls want to take them down with me tomorrow (unlikely!). I'm sick of the sight of them now!

    Looking forward to seeing your coursework this term ...

  4. Dead impressed Gina. We have spent the day packing up Christmas and still my feet are frozen (may have had something to do with an afternoon walk with kids and dogs that was SO cold Pr.C-W came home with tears b/c of frozen fingers).

    Word verification is 'cable'. Are you sure your module doesn't cover knitting in haute couture???

  5. Wow, your workroom looks amazing - both before and after - I've never seen it!

    I'm so excited to see what you produce in this module Gina - eeek! There, did that sound excited?

    Happy New Year!

  6. I have major tidying up to start tomorrow... groan!
    I'm repeating to myself 'as soon as it's done, you can start a quilt'!
    Your workroom looks very impressive, btw.

  9. OH NO! Now I feel extra guilty because that's exactly what I was supposed to do today, or at least empty my sewing room in preparation for the decorator coming on Wed. And I didn't.
    Don't suppose you want to do mine?

  12. Your workroom looks so organised and tidy - very conducive to producing wonderful work for a new module. I'd be hard pressed to make a birthday card in my room at present. I should have made tidying it a New Year resolution. Looking forward to seeing where the new module takes you - good luck.

  13. Your next module sounds great - I can't wait to see your work. Grand job on the workroom clear up. You'll enjoy keeping it nice and tidy of course ;)

  14. Bravo on your very grand New Year clear up. Wish that I could follow your example...just don't have the room for all of ... what I have. Guess that one of my New Year's wishes is just to learn to live with what seems to be my natural environment.

    (I did dust and drift about with the vacuum cleaner/hoover on New Year's Day. Felt noble, and on January 3, cannot say that I really notice any difference!)

    Best wishes with the embroidery/fashion. So much to explore ... hoping that France and India will play a big part in the course.

  17. Happy New Year Gina! The fashion module looks very exciting - bet you can't wait! Maybe it's an excuse to visit some posh shops too just to try things on. (I once tried on a Vivienne Westwood jacket and the cut and finish was out of this world - would have needed a mortgage to buy it!)

    Looking around my studio, it looks like image A. I blitzed the bedroom yesterday (very satisfying) time to start on the studio...

  19. Gina, I have been doing the same re: cleaning studios and it gives a lot of energy for new art making , doesn't it?

    I'm sure you'll do well in the Fashion module and will enjoy it. Like the rest of your readers, I look forward to your posts about the degree course.

  20. that sounds like such an exciting module!! I am jealous! I too have been on a bit of a cleaning frenzy, (there'll be no guilt for the rest of the year as the house descends into filth now!!)

  21. wow - what a space, so envious! I think I need to do some spring cleaning too, after I get through all the paperwork and do my tax return - yelp!

    Just to wish you a Happy and Creative New Year! and thanks kindly for your supportive comments on my blog in 2009. Here's to a great 2010 . . .

  24. ooooHHHH! your latest module looks right up my street! Lovely book pile to look at too. Would those be IKEA shelves by any chance? Have a set myself but they are starting to come apart a bit, over filled I think.
    Happy New Year!

  25. Great module, I loved doing it at college, my all time heroine is Vivienne Westwood.
    Can't wait to see where you go with this one.
    PS so glad your warm again, we had the same problem for 2 weeks last February, the gas company gave us 2 fan heaters.
