JustAMinuteButtonAs I’ve been showing updates on the progress of the future Studio Matilda, I’ve had a few requests to see my current workspace … so here it is!

(What you don’t see is the spare bedroom stacked high with fabric and other miscellaneous, nor all of the AptOne8 furniture piled around my bedroom!)

Today: An Updated Peek Inside the Current Studio Matilda!

    I also use what was a bedroom as my workspace and computer area. It is somewhat organized but improving fabric storage is the next huge project. Would fabric storage be another topic for Just A Minute? Knowing tips about how to categorize fabrics would greatly improve one’s ability to find what is needed.
