Here we are on week three to reveal the room where we create, hosted very kindly by Vicki who has organised the links each week, go along and visit and see the stunning studios there!
My studio is very much a cobbled together place, it is the smaller of our four bedrooms only 9' x 9' so not much room at all in there, this year we hope to go through into the adjoining bedroom to give me twice as much space! For the moment what you see below is rather cramped.
Above as I come in the door on the left hand side I have a design wall which can cope with a quilt up to 72" and presently being used for MATO, at the side of this is a small one with the start of the baby quilt
along from the wall is my cutting table with a small ironing area, boxes with strips, my special embroidery threads and white board and bits and pieces. At the left hand side of the table out of picture is a deep two drawer plastic container with my GO dies on top and cutter at the side. Presently fabric yardage is stored on the shelf underneath the table, I will be getting hold of shelving for these when we extend the area.
Under the window is my small extending table with my machine, underneath the serger and my embellisher
going around the room I have more storage drawers and my little rimu chest holding threads, you can also see the board holding pieces of fabric ready for my 9 patch on the MATO
my other sewing machine is alongside my thread chest and my magazine holders behind
at the side of the machine are two more storage drawer carts with another small chest of drawers on top holding scissors, cutters, pins and needles, and other bits and pieces
behind the two storage sets are my wire storage baskets for fabrics
there is a small area between the drawers and the baskets of fabrics here I have four more wire baskets slotted under the table extension and I use these for holding fabrics for current projects before putting away in their baskets when they are no longer needed.
Hopefully this will look quite different in a years time and I will post a photo or two of the re-vamped room.
That's it from me - time to decorate our Christmas tree, we're behind this year!
Don't forget to go along and see all the other studios at the link hosted by Vicki, a big thank you goes to Vicki for organising and hosting this tour!
Enjoy your weekend
