New Studio Tour, Part II

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!)

  1. Thanks for inserting my idea…in a way I have a similar situation regarding my “making” space … sometimes I get annoyed when I have to go to another room to do some other process…but recently I changed my attitude and said it was a kind of exercise!

  2. Good luck on that plan to post daily…but we’re here reading in case you do. [smiley face] Having your work space spread over several rooms will force you to get up and move about occasionally (exercise) as CEDAR51 mentioned. Good for circulation.

  4. Looks so cosy. That kitchen cutting station is brilliant. (If you ever need to steam a quilt to get rid of undulations, you could add anothere station in the shower cubicle or above the bath !!)
