Hey –how is everyone out there?

I am supposed to be doing new design pattern directions…but i am going to take a break, write a post and eat 2 dove dark chocolates…want to see my sewing studio?

here is a fish eye look at part of it…see the new black furniture?  just what this primitive girl needs…black…look how it makes my room look so much bigger? Can you see where my computer is?  Just barely to the far right corner…i am sitting there right now…too bad it doesn’t look this clean…lol   it is never clean…and why should it be…i am always creating messes…well…here are the two quotes from the “dove” goddess…”Do what feels right.” and “Be the first to hit the dance floor”…I think that one was really meant for Nick…so I will have another…”Let your sensuousness shine through.” Hmmm…it is my 14th Wedding Anniversary today…that is all I am going to say about that one…I was going to show you all a pic of all of the fabric that came in to the warehouse the last 2 days…My Seasonal Little Gatherings is here…but I can’t find the pic on my phone..oh well…trust me it was a lot…hope you ordered some because it is HERE!!!

more…later…on my next break…LB

    It looks wonderful! Are the cabinets custom? I’m about to have a new sewing room added to my house and have been looking at furniture but haven’t seen anything but white or natural wood.

    Is this at The Gathering? I can’t picture where your studio is in the house? It looks great! What is the quilt on your quilt frame?
    Happy Anniversary!

    Looks great. Very cozy and inviting 🙂
    Is your cutting mat 2 squished together or one big one? I have a new cutting table much like yours but the mat could be bigger….if it’s one, where did you get it?

    How does anyone stop at only two Dove chocolates?! Happy Anniversary, Lisa and Nick! One of my favorite quotes is “Love life, and life will love you back.” You and Nick ARE that quote!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your studio ! and how DO you stop at just 2 Dove chocolates ?? I sure can’t ! Love that you have a quilting frame … so many quilters today don’t even know how to hand-quilt or applique (unless they’ve seen your patterns !) …. we have to keep the OLD ways going too !
    Now, get back to WORK on your wonderful designs … and I’m heading back to MY sewing room too … I’m reorganizing !

    Happy Anniversary! What a beautiful room! I have a smaller room, but it needs some tuning to make better use of the space. Love the “rolling drawers” especially.

    oops forgot to wish you a Happy 14th anniversary !! We have our 27th this May 🙂

    Happy Anniversary! Your sewing room looks wonderful. Love those dark floors, and am really envious that you have room for a quilting frame to stay set up. You are very disciplined to just have two pieces of chocolate & it is nearly always more fun to do what you want vs what you should 🙂

    Love your studio!! What are the dimensions of your space? We’re looking for a new house and it has to have space for my sewing studio.

      700 square feet and that includes a full bathroom…

      1. Kathy Avatar

        That would make it a MASTER STUDIO!!! LOL Love your studio by the way. I’ve been cleaning mine ever since I saw your setup yesterday.

    I meant that I pinned the summer BOM entry and not your sewing room…I think I better retire for the day!
