I know that I have not been very regular in posting ( a bit of an understatement, I know!! Right!)
If you are reading this, Thank You!! for hanging in there with me. I promise to do better. I have started a few post recently and my pictures wouldn't download. But on my final try for the day...magically what I was doing all along worked!! I don't understand it but oh well!! Technology will always remain somewhat of a mystery to me, I guess. :-) I'd rather be working with fabric now that I understand!!
I am starting with some pictures of my new Studio..AKA Formal Living Room!! As I rambled around this big house, I decided I no longer wanted or needed to be working out of an upstairs bedroom when I had a huge seldom used living room on the main floor. So after removing some large furniture pieces that I no longer needed and adding some tables and storage I made it a very cozy and productive space. Here are a few pics.
|This cabinet was a hand-me-down from a friend that did not want to move it. It holds alot of fabric!|
|A little Kaffe Fassett always makes me a happy girl!!|
|My cutting table.. this wonderful stack of Anna Marie Horner "Field Study" waiting to be cut.|
