Studio Redo

This is my studio/sewing room, in the basement, all cleaned and organized for the sewing room tour my guild had this past Sunday. The tour was great - eight of us opened our homes to members to come and see where we create. My husband (funny guy) called it an inspection all week. kept asking things like "what time is the inspection?"

Back to my new space......I love it! My husband, Kevin, was a huge help. He made: two large design walls using homosote, put tyvek on the ceiling (suspended ceiling to follow when money allows), made me a peg board for all of my scissors, rulers and stuff and he has been a great support in getting me an awesome space I can work in.

One of my favorite parts of is the two tables pushed together, one has an ironing mat on it and one has the cutting mat. Together they make a great space to work, especially when doing a fusible project.

I have taken shots from each corner so you can see the whole thing.

postcards with a purpose

I have been making postcards for lots of different reasons, some happy occasions, some sad. I love making them...they are like making a quick quilt.

I have been busy cleaning and organizing my sewing room for a sewing room tour this weekend with my quilt guild. I believe there are 30 people signed up for the tour. I will post that pictures when it is ready for the crowd.

I have been planning out lots of quilts but I am working on my last two blocks for the slice house quilt round robin I am in (see posts below). This last round has my house in it, I am very excited to see how it comes out! I am also excited to go away with my guild for the weekend in mid November. It is tricky because it starts on my husbands birthday but he didn't mind, he has never big on birthdays.

It has been 7 weeks since my kids have all been in school. I haven't been getting as much done as I thought. Partly because I started exercising and it takes a couple hours between driving to the gym, class, drive home, take a shower...... I feel great but I am losing about 8 hours of housework, sewing time.....

I have been tagged and I will work on that for my next post along with shots from the sewing room tour.
