Feng Shui ... is it a thing in a quilting studio?

 I must admit, I have not been in the mood to quilt ... not one bit! Well, not since I started working from home. Not even a dead line; a project to complete for today's Sew we Gather group, got me into my creative space. First time in years that I will be showing up empty handed ... Sigh!

You see, I set up my office in my quilting studio ... I even converted one of my sewing desks into a working desk. Yes, poor Bernie 180 is sitting on the floor next to her desk.

The first thing I see when I walk into my sewing studio is my work desk and I'm wondering if that has an effect on the Feng Shui ... the creative energy of the room.

Keeping the work desk in mind, my creative area has become a dumping ground for computer/monitor boxes all lined up under Penelope. I mean, work energy is everywhere in that room. 

Some people have their working area in their bedroom, not me. I like my intimacy and besides I don't want to be reminded of work when I go to bed. As for another room in my home, not really an option. I don't want a working area in my living room. That is where I sit to knit! lol

I've been giving this some thought and thinking that perhaps re-arranging the room might be an option to get the creative energy flowing. Maybe if I put the work desk at the end of the room by the closet, where my UFOS projects in waiting are. This way, walking into my studio the first thing I'll see is the shelf and not my work desk.

Of course just the thought of moving all that computer equipment makes me want to sit on the couch and continue knitting. LOL

What's your thought on the situation? Are any of you facing this challenge?

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

Yes this will affect the Feng Shui in the room. Where you enter the room, do some adjusting as if the room were the entire Bagua map. Get your office area immediately inside center toward the right. Even if you have to do some adjusting it will help.

Also, when you close up work for the day, toss a loved quilt over the workspace so you can leave the office :-)

Not that I have any knowledge of Feng Shui, but yes, having the home office PC and work stuff on my sewing desk definetly affects my creativity and urge to sew.. I try to cover the screen and put the laptop away (mostly on Fridays, but also during the week when I see that there might be available time to sew) so that the desk is "free" for sewing and quilting. (Let's just not mention how the rest of the family and life in general makes my sewing time minimal these days..)

I see a won't wear suggested but maybe a quilt top would be lighter to cover your work space...... Try that before your start moving everything..... It's a pain like you say with all the cords to sort and replug in...... Goodluck......

It’s always hard to have multiple purpose areas. I like the idea of a quilt divider. That would definitely help my creative process.

That's a huge undertaking and improvement. I would love to dismantle my sewing space yet know how disruptive that will be when I start it, so my bedroom is on my radar for November, wish me luck! With this "hot new set up I hope its letting your energy flow better so you get your quilty groove back.
