What a difference time makes

Here's what I wrote on November 12th, 2005
I can't tell you how much fun I had today. I love working in my little studio while customers shop. Tons and tons of fun was had by all.
My studio is tiny but it is prefect for me. When we bought our house we were delighted that this studio came with. At first my hubby and I were sharing it. I mean how much room can yarn and needles take up. Well you would be surprised. So finally one day hubby looked around and said "I think you need this space to yourself" and so he began to move out. I was thrilled!
Of course there are things I would love to change. It is always thus. For one thing I need a sandwich board on the road. Most Mayne Island studios have this and I should too. Don't get me wrong I love my quilt sign. (One day I will have to tell you the story behind it. It is quite a story.) Its just that I need more signage. I would also like to paint the studio walls and replace the carpet. These things will come. After all I just opened my studio. This year it was open by appointment but after today I am seriously considering having set hours of operation. As I have other commitments this will be a little tricky but I can make it work.

And on March 31st, 2010 I write...
Wow, I can't believe that I ever considered having my place of work open for public viewing daily. I am a private person and I enjoy working in seclusion. That may be one reason why my plan to have shop hours never became reality.
Last October I moved out of the studio.
Well, you see, my knitting and my writing kept following me into the house.
I found it easier to schedule my business work around my household tasks. This was hard to do when I was working in the studio.
I now work on a large oak desk in the living room.
Our house is on a hill so as I write I look out a large window into a forest of trees. I even have a peek-a-boo view of the ocean.
Who is in the studio?
It has become his music room. A space where he can not only practice and jam but also record live performances.
Life is grand for all.
