Welcome to my studio, a totally unvarnished look at the space where I spend quit a bit of time. Right now I am in the middle of redoing the entire room in preparation for a new Longarm quilting machine ( for more about that go to http://www.longarmvirgin.blogspot.com/) but things are going pretty slow. I have about two days to kick it into gear am get it done before the machine frame gets here! (eek!) Over all the main space of the room is 17 x27ish but broken up in ways that are not overly helpful!
This is a vew from the entryway.. you can see how far I have gotten with the flooring and what I still need to do. To your left you can see my dressmakers dummy ~ Fancy~.. right now the poor thing has purses slung on her.. not very fancy at all! The open door next to fancy it the cabinet where I keep all my stamping and paper-good supplies ( yep.. I like scrabooking too!) The long view is straight out to the screene- in porch off our second story deck.
Here is a shot of my paper craft area in an Vintage English kitchen cabinet.. next to that is my 6 needle machine which runs most of the day and sometimes into the night!
Moving right along you can see the blinds that are ready to be traded in for new curtains... I really like having the natural light over my work table but need to work on more "night light" to keep my work space lit up at night. You can see a bit of my thread.. I have 6 other bins that I still need to buy racks for!
The view out the back door. Next week the guys should be here to replace that slider with French doors like in the rest of the house.
Panning to the right is the open area that is waiting for the new Longarm. The big open wall will have my design wall in place....what a luxury!
Pan more to the right past the design wall and you get to my "sewing deck". To make more room my other sewing machines have been packed away but I do keep out my serger and my cover lock machine to use with my Bernina 830 ( embroidery module is not on right now)
Extra cart to my right holds all my sewing supplies for the machines.. it rolls so I can take it whereever I need it in the room. Those with eagle eyes will notice that my desk is up high and I use a drafting chair.. that mean my pedal is on the box... pretty sexy huh??
Sneak around the corner a bit and you can see my design area with my imac and all my books and what not. I have been making the most of this built in since it was here.. but I see a time when I will want to have it removed. And look at that chair.. what a sad looking piece.. I need to do something about that!
My WAY ugly light fixture that must GO! and my pared down fabirc stash.. On the wall is one of my new quilt patternes for the embroidery machine.. Circles of the Sun. It's a whole cloth quilt with reverse applique done in the hoop.
horrifying up close look at my stash.. piles of vintage sheets and who knows what else.. but I have plans... so do check back in to see how the things come along as I update the room!
