Wanted to write something thoughtful about this week's events but words fail. Will cling to the belief that the good people on this earth outnumber the bad...
A relatively trivial subject that I can write about is the issue of a permanent design wall. Unfortunately, the perimeter of my sewing space is filled with storage cabinets. While I greatly admire Katie's solution, M. is quite adamant that my creative process not be on display in our living room and other shared parts of the house.
Am very excited to report that Glorious Color is selling grey and gridded design wall flannel! Some designers think it is easier to look at color against a neutral rather than white which can be a bit distracting. Hopefully this weekend, the fabric will be wrapped around this pink stuff:
The fabric-covered insulation boards will then be mounted to these three:
4x8' very sturdy wheeled department store fixtures that we found for $20 at a retailer that was being replaced by a Target. You could make something similar with partition walls from an office supply store. The new design walls will be portable and double-sided. They can roll where needed and I can still access my supplies... Can't wait! Do you use a design wall and if so how did you make it???
