Yes, you read correctly: I have a studio and better yet, I am set up. Despite careful unpacking I am still in the hunting stages for this and that as I cannot always remember exactly where I have put my things. I imagine it will take a little while for me to find my bearings however, with the first project completed I am feeling more at home each day.
It took exactly a month from moving into the house to get the many boxes unpacked. I am still in the process of hanging some art pieces for inspiration but there is really no rush. For now I am happy to have my computer set up which enabled me to retrieve a presentation I am scheduled to give to the Waterloo and District Quilters Guild on March 17th. I also unearthed the handout and samples for the workshop I will conduct for the same guild in May.
And sometimes I still get a bit overwhelmed but luckily we have a fantastic winter so far. From Sunday to Monday we received about 30 cm of snow and with glorious sunshine it is easy to get out for walks regularly. Yesterday afternoon I connected with my walking group and we ventured out into the woods for a snowshoe excursion. Here are some images from the woods located across from our new home.
I just realized that this is blog post #910. I can hardly believe that number! There will be more coming very soon as I spend time in the studio regularly. Hope everyone is able to hibernate and stay safe. Hopefully we can move about more freely in the near future!
Looking great Anna. Now the fun begins. Glad you like you house and location. Beats Buffalo Pound I bet. 😜😜

Each studio I have had is different. Does it beat the lake studio… the advantage I see is that it is close by so I don’t have to bundle up to get to it during a winter night. It has no view as such because it is in the basement and it is much smaller than my last purpose-built studio. However, I am confident that it will serve me well. Some of the best work I ever did was in the basement in Calgary before we moved to SK.
Anna, it looks great and I am inspired to work more on mine. Elinor
