New Digs

The addition when it was under construction

I am so excited!!! I am getting a new quilt studio. It's over twice the size of my current space! Words can't even begin to tell how exciting this is. I have been without a sewing room for almost 17 years. My sewing machine has been in the family room, a hallway and our bedroom. Now at last my sewing will be able to go in the same room as my quilt studio.

My old studio -- only 9' by 15'

We added a family room unto our home 3 years ago with the intention that someday it would be my studio. At the time we needed it to house 2 of our children. Now with one daughter married and the other about to leave for a school in Hawaii the room will become my studio. The room is 16 by 16 so it has plenty of room for my longarm and my sewing.

Right now I'm planning the room. My sister gave me the book, 'Creating Your Perfect Quilting Space' by Lois Hallock several years ago. Many of the ideas and information is very helpful to planning my new studio.

I'll try to update this blog regularly of my progress. My plan is to be completely moved in my 'new digs' by mid April.

How fortunate you are to have such a generous sized space of your own!
