I was trying to show size on my pieces and not liking a yard stick that has a distracting color to my piece so my solution was to take a piece of foam core that I marked inches on the side and inches across the bottom.
Here is an example of it. Not too professional looking yet but it gets the size visually. Oh! I just had thought. I think there is quilters tapes that are in measurements maybe if they have white I might try it.
Carving out a small niche for a studio-ish kind of place. With the organizing of my yarns I now can process my designs.
Besides now the living room and sun room are just that.

Since I’m organizing I saw this and thought I would post.
Went to storage today and continued to sort through my items. Sorted out projects in limbo from finished projects. Wow, so many that are just hop, skip and jump from being done but…just the right thing to finish.
My selection of scissors, crochet hooks are many. I went through a phase of collecting all kinds of hooks, steel bone, wood, interchangeable, afghan, double ended and so on and so on.
But when I started felting I found I needed an additional set of tools to manipulate and shape the wool after it is felted. These are a few items along with many different types of scissors.
I have wanted to track my projects and searched internet for pages but the did not seem to do enough. I needed to add pictures of the work steps too.
So I am a newbie to apple iPad and looked at their program “numbers”. In it I found a travel template that with a few modifications worked out really well. I can then print them off and put them in a binder with snippets of yarns used.
**I have spent the weekend tweaking these spread sheets. I am very pleased with the outcome and think I now can get back to crocheting. I also brought home from storage binders, plastic sleeves to sort finished from in finished projects so I can focus on completing them plus gives me a portfolio of art that I can show.
Well, since I am semi retired now I am able to get back to my fiber art but I really want to be a little more organized, in further depth about my process.
Many years ago I had formulated several printed project sheets for crochet that I had wanted to package and sell but was focused on making a different career. So today, I spent most of the day (argh) converting them from my PC to my iPad tablet and getting a couple printed off. A feat in its self.
