Today in the Studio




Nothing like having a brand new space to inspire action. Today I finished a bunch of stuff that had been languishing in a half-done state for weeks. First, I finished the "Lovely Day" papercut piece I've been thinking about for eons. It's part of a series where I'm doing lyrics from each song on the album Ella and Louis. One of my favorites. Second and in a more mundane vein, I put up a chicken wire tool organizer and sewed a new sewing machine cover for my much abused Singer. Lastly, and not pictured, I stitched up a new dog walking apron that holds bags and treats for our walks. Turned out nice. Pics on that one later. Now I'm going to bed.

  2. Is the chicken wire organizer as useful as it looks? Looks more effective than pegboard.

  3. Jim - Yeah, it's pretty great. I banged together some 2x2, wrapped some chicken wire around it and bought a $3 box of "S" hooks at the hardware store. Works for pretty much everything I need at arms reach.

  4. Hmm. I'm going to reexamine my current small hand tool storage system (a "pile") and consider going the chicken wire route.

  5. I love the use of the chicken wire for your tools! I have used chicken wire in frames to display fiber before, but I am going to adapt it for studio use as well.

  7. I was inspired by your chicken wire tool organizer and made my own from found materials (except for the chicken wire). See it at
