Rising to the challenge (or is it the bait?) of Francesca's post about messy homes and unstylish parts of them, I present the central bit of my studio. Look! The boots I wore 2 days ago! The hat I wore last week, I think? The notebooks that arrived a week before that! The dress I'm fixing, the bag I'm working on, the last book I read - and part of the mutoscope. And behind the chair, the trunk that catches the fallout from my desk (just keep shifting things out the way, till they fall off...) I thought it would be lovely to have a comfy chair in my studio, to sit in while I sip tea and ponder new ideas. And it would be.
While I'm on the honesty ride, here's another unappealing bit: the window that leaks and can only be fixed next week, maybe. So for now a towel will have to do.
This is a hopefully a bit of a 'Before' shot, because from next month this will be my studio window. I'll be able to sit and work in the sun - at my desk! I feel warmer already.
