Walk in the door, and you'll find my design wall on your left and then the desk area. You'll see that there's 2 desks back to back. That's because hubby and I actually share this room, though he likes to give me a bad time that I took over 3/4 of it. I guess that's true, but he did give me permission! Anyway, this is where I wake with my morning latte, blog, and do all my computer stuff.
Then along that wall is a nice large window where my cutting table is. That big ole basket is for scraps. Yeah, I'm not a sorter, and I canNOT seem to empty that basket!! So there's my machine set-up. If there was one thing I could improve about my studio, it would definitely be a big table to set my machine on. I think it would really help with my wrestling with quilts as I machine quilt. Though I have a real fondness for that sewing cabinet that holds my grandma's old Singer - the machine she taught me to sew on. All these years, whatever machine I've had, it's sat right on that cabinet. Just in case you're curious, my Patchwork, Please! You've-Got-Mail Wall Pocket holds my basic Aurifil threads - gray in one pocket, white and natural in others, so they are always handy. And that metal thing is an IKEA magazine rack from daughter-dear's old room. It's perfect for a few magazines, bee block instructions, and other paper patterns I'm working with. Over the weekend I was inspired by Leanne/shecanquilt's "show off corner" and hung my 2 ribbons from AQS shows.
There's alot I like about my studio, but one of my favorite parts is my fabric storage. No longer in bins, I can open the closet doors and see everything I have. Yes there are cubbies behind that tiny wall, but hubby installed 2 lights on the other side, so I really can see in there pretty good. Can't say I totally cleaned it up for you, but you can see I keep my roll of batting, a bin of all my interfacings, extra rulers, etc. All in all, it's pretty workable.
So that's where I create pretty much everything I blog about. It's a comfortable, happy place to be.
