My Studio, Pre-Sheep & Wool Fest -- aka "Hurricane Sarah"

I'm leaving for Rhinebeck (The New York Sheep and Wool Festival) on Friday. I am still hooking on the rug that will be the focal point of our booth in between packing and pricing and dyeing (I dyed 5 yards of wool by 9 am this morning). My studio is a complete and total mess. I can;t spare the time to stop and clean it, so I am wading through snippets of wool and whatever else falls on the floor.

I was reading Tammy's blog the other day (Skip to My Ewe). She said she never hooks in her hooking room because it is such a wreck. I told her if she'd post a photo of her studio, I'd post a photo of mine. I haven't heard from her yet, but decided to go ahead and do it anyway. I had a good laugh a few minutes ago when I looked up from my rug frame and realized I couldn't find the dog until a pile of linen in the corner moved. Did you spot Cairo sleeping on top of the linen basket? Poor little guy -- he can't wait until this show is over and life gets back to normal.

You crack me up as well! I haven't worked any more on my hooking room since I blogged the other day. I'll have to take time today to post some snapshots on my blog. Right now I'd call my hooking room "intermediate" as the pics I'll post will be after I had spent several hours organizing.
Love the dog comment....Cairo looks happy in the little nest!

I so identify with your story!!! I've shown pictures of my studio and my office hoping to shame myself into order!! I always get it together if I'm having customers or a class ~ being artistic and organized do not go hand in hand!! Hope you had a good show!!
