From couch to file cabinet

Drawer clean out stuff
An artist cleaning out closets and drawers at any time of the year might discover clear areas close to their heart. This artist has been joking for twenty plus years…That’s worth embroidering to hang on the wall…and what shows up during a sort out? Embroidery floss among *metal file folder holders (say that ten times).

Steel towel rack

What style is possibly hiding in your closets and drawers?
This artists (by surprise) gathers from a recent clean out…love for sewing and metal sculpture began decades ago, and has not faded. There is clear indication those areas must be on the creative to-do list, (as opposed to a do-when-you-feel-like-it list).

A bonus is finding an old steel three arm towel rack. After a sanding it will be ready to spray paint or sell on Esty.com for the new owner to add the color of their choice. This artist prefers a drying clothes line to hang artwork and crafts.

*The file folder holders metal strips have been added to the steel couch spring project.
