My studio makes up the space that two bedrooms took when our children lived at home. I’ve filled every nook and cranny with my sewing machines, notions, fabric, supplies, and decor. If children want to come home they have to sleep up in the loft!
This is who greets my visitors! My mom was a wonderful doll maker. She used to own JoAnn’s Doll Emporium for over 25 yrs. Porcelain and cloth dolls alike. Her dolls are scattered throughout our home. Hubby puts up with my quilts, and my mom’s dolls.
I own several BabyLock sewing machines – my quilting machines, mid-arm machine, embroidery, and serger. I also have a few vintage machines and a couple of toy sewing machines. I still have yet to find a 221 Singer. My 99K is presently being restored.
Every space available is used up!
I love fun, beautiful, and nostalgic things surrounding me.
My quilting flows better when my notions are at my fingertips. Put them in a box, and I forget about there – or where I put them!
My poor fabric! I need to get them wound onto neat boards. At least I have color coordination going on! More fabric in the closet area.
Some antique dolls, and a couple of my mom’s cloth folk are dolls.
And lastly, I love to scrapbook! Which I do in my spare “down” time. It gives me another outlet to playing with color and texture. Right now I’m creating ancestral albums.
Where do you do your most creative quilting? Over twenty years ago I started out at our family kitchen table! Homeschooling, young children, eating, and a small house. But lots of love!
