Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend. Summer is beginning to wind down here in Iowa. We had a warm end to last week, but Sunday was sunny and cool. I took the opportunity to do a bit of fall decorating.
I enjoy decorating for fall and I love fall …. just hate what comes after it!
Another thing I like to do is organize and straighten out my studio. Usually, it’s a mess by now since I’m in my final planning for fall Quilt Market in Houston. So, since I have been getting things in order, I thought I’d give you a little tour of my studio.
First, here a few wide shots showing the whole area from different ends:
It’s a lot bigger than my old work space, but I have managed to fill it up. Not sure what I did in the smaller spaces!
Now for fabric storage. I store large pieces of fabric in this old cupboard:
The smaller folds of fabric, like 1/2 yards, 1/4 yards and fats, are in the lower cupboards in tubs with my scraps of wool in the drawers above:
I like to use antiques and other old items in my studio. My fabric storage for large pieces of fabric above is an old cupboard. I re-purpose other items to store sewing or office supplies. Using them in the studio joins together two loves of mine: antiques and quilting!
Here’s an old pie safe that stores all my books, magazines and some treasured quilts.
Always hunting for those scissors while you are stitching? Here’s a handy tip: attach a Command hook to the front of your sewing machine and hang the scissors there! You will never lose them again.
So, I hope you enjoyed the tour of my studio! Keep watch here because on Wednesday I will have another feature on one of my new patterns for fall of 2017.
