Well here is the update on the Studio

This is as good as I can do with the room that I have to work with. I need to down size and eliminate those thing that I don't work with anymore but I know that the minute I do that I am going to need one of those things again. I have a huge amount of Water Colors that I have done that I just want to get rid of but just yesterday I was just inspired to use them as patterns for my punch needle and rug hooking. So you see if I would have tossed them I would have been so angry with myself for throwing them out. So unless I get a permanent studio separate from the house I am just going to have to accept the space I have. At least it is cleaner and I did throw away some old magazines and scraps of fabric and a few other items.
So now I guess that I am either going to have to get one of those small storage sheds that is water tight or I am going to have to just get rid of some of my not so important stuff. heheh Yea right !  !  !

I also found a wonderful inspriational picture drawn by a young lady named Kara. I have been given permission to reproduce it into one of my punchneedle or rug hooks.
The picture is  of a rooster and comes from  Vicki's blog called http://rustyroostervintage.blogspot.com/
This is the great rooster picture.
I think that children's paintings and pictures are a great source of inspiration for many forms of art work such as Cross Stitch, Needle Punch, Rug Hooking or even appliqué. Can't you just see a whole quilt done in farm animals or just a combination of children's drawings all put into one big quilt?
