New Sewing Space

 One of the rooms that received the new carpet was my sewing room, so even though I have used this same room for years, it feels nice and fresh and new, because we painted it as well. I changed the set up a bit too.

I took some photos, while it was still relatively neat! My Q20 that I use for quilting and free motion thread painting, is still in the same corner. It's a nice light area.

My quilting and designing templates are stored in this white chest of drawers. The brown sets of drawers on top hold the Madeira embroidery threads that I love.

My domestic sewing machine is in a different spot and along side it is my computer area.

My new purchase is a combined cutting table and ironing board.

I really love my new set up, it's working so well. What I have noticed when I looked at the photos that I took was that I haven't hung any work or pictures on the walls yet, so it is looking a bit bare. That's the trouble when you paint the walls, you don't want to mess them up.

I have started a new quilt, it feels so good to be inspired again. I actually did a bit of really traditional patchwork for the first time in years.

I sewed some strips of fabric together.

Then I cut them and resewed them into squares.

I don't like having to be so precise, I find it a bit tedious, so luckily I don't need much of it.

Here is a sneak peak of the quilt that I have started, I was inspired by my Morocco trip.

I am the guest speaker at the Patchwork and Quilters Guild on Saturday, they want me to talk about Art Quilts. The good thing about it is that I don't have to bring all my big quilts for a change. I last spoke at this group many years ago, so it will be good to see them again.

Bye for now,
