Quick follow up to my May 7th post – “Oh Scrap”, Part II and New “Studio” Tour.
Thanks everyone for their comments!
I took the advice of @KNITNKWILT and removed the quotes from around the word “Studio” in the title of this follow up post – I am just going to accept it is my STUDIO.
I am still giggling over the advice and comments from @CEDAR51:
I would remove “guest room” and say outright to a guest “yes, I have space in my workroom for you to stay…but tread carefully there maybe the odd pin on the floor (or similar)”
Additionally I took the awesome advice of @ANNE54 and tied a scrap of the color of the fabric scraps in the basket to the little basket handle on front to quickly identify what color is in the basket:
After my previous post, I began working on the cleaning up the edges of the quilt I got professional long-arm quilted before I moved from Central Oregon to Colorado in my new kitchen cutting station:
I really like my kitchen cutting station (and my master bedroom ironing station I shared in the previous post).
I have the binding machine stitched to the quilt now and now I am working on sewing down the binding by hand in the evenings while watching TV with Mike the Miniature Schnauzer.
One thing that is pretty clear – I have a lot of quilts, afghans and pillows in my apartment. What used to be spread about a three-bedroom home is now condensed into my smaller apartment!
For example – here is the bench at the back of my sofa in my living room. You can see the quilt that I am currently hand sewing the binding down in the middle of the back of the sofa.
Be warned – I am going to try to post daily for a while to try and catch up on all the posts I have in my head (quite the backlog!)
