My studio has been a little neglected this past month in all of the hubbub of the daily grind. However, one special item came in and I just could not wait to show it to you!
Back in at the Cincinnati Quilt Show in April, I ordered my new sewing table! I had been saving my pennies, and this was a big splurge, but it’s so worth it. It’s been custom made for the height I sit at, and the insert is removable and I can add feet to it to take it with me on the road. The insert is by Sew Steady, and it’s great.
It’s from Tracey’s Tables, who were so fabulous and set it all up on delivery too!
This weekend, I really needed to clean my studio.
I have been making LED kits like crazy for a class I am teaching at the Fiber Art Divas meeting tonight at the Naperville Art League.
Kits, and ATC backs, everywhere!!! If you will be at the meeting, see you there!

You can see the pink foam for my new design wall. It’s almost done and just needs it’s felt covering. That’s coming soon! After that, the room just needs one more tidying and my (almost year long) makeover will be complete!
My studio is the previous owner’s daughter’s room. It was painted purple and green, and since I like those colors I decided to leave it painted that way. When I was little I BEGGED my father to paint my room purple like a friend of mine had. After a weekend away I came back to my room painted a light lavender. That is the color in the studio, and I love it. It brings back those childhood memories, and of something my dad did for me.
I decided to put whimsy things in my studio. I have lots of fairies in there, all mostly from when I was a kid and could not get enough of fairies, unicorns, and the like. I was a child of the 80’s after all.
I had this Avon perfume decanter as a kid. I think it was second hand, because I only had the wand, and not the wings. It was long since tossed out. I think only to top half of her survived, and my brother liked the wand because it glowed in the dark. The other day I just happened to Google it, and came across some eBay auctions for them, and next thing you know I had one. I opened the perfume and it smelled just like I remember. The smell of childhood, and nostalgia, and it made me miss that old house. It made me call my dad. 🙂
Do you have anything that brings back memories like that?
More weekly quilts and stuff coming up this week! Yay!
