Unveiling my quilting studio!

Post by Leslie& The Furbabies in MO » Fri, 14 Aug 2009 02:41:06



Some of you may know that about 4 months ago I purchased a delightful,
rambling, 90 y.o. house.  She's a real character (just like me!)- added on
to and remodeled many times over the years.  This house has 8 different
levels!  Some are only a step up or down, some are a few steps- and there's
an upstairs, too.  I am finally getting all settled in- The Hairy***Gang
made it theirs from Day One.

I just now (today!) finished unpacking and organizing my studio.  It's a
former breezeway between the family room and the master bedroom- it was
already enclosed and finished when I moved here.  It still needs a little
tweaking, but it's ready to sew!  (Sorry but I'm still using WebShots- if
you are very careful to not allow your cursor any where but the gray margins
on each page- stay away from the ads!- you shouldn't get any annoying
sounds.  Or just turn off your speakers.)

Welcome to my studio!

That's a terrific setup, Leslie. Were all the cupboards and everything
already there or did you install those? I'm envious of your thread
cupboard - heck, I'm envious of the whole room!

Thanks!  I'm really proud of it.  The cabinets are mine.  I have been buying
them as I could afford it (over many years!) and moving them from house to
house when I moved... and I installed all the cabinets all by myself!  VBG
The room had the wood walls and slate floor and the track lights- so it just
had to be my studio with that set-up in place!

That is a wonderful room Leslie.  What a great
space.  Too bad you don't have much stash or
thread.  big LOL!  I imagine it is a pleasure to
sew there.
Thanks for sharing.

It looks wonderful Leslie.  And just think - if you wake up in the middle of
the night & need a sewing fix, you only have to roll out of bed & voila you
are there!  I love all the storage & the wall of windows to the yard.  I
know - too bad you lose wall space, but, it will definitely be a joy to sew
in that room.  I have a Cheryl Ann Design wall,which is portable
http://www.FoundCollection.com/;But, maybe you could attach something
to the area above the windows that you can roll up when you're not using it?
I'm very happy with my design wall.

What a great studio! I love the whole thing, but especially the
windows. I know what you mean about no place for a design wall. Maybe
you can take over a wall someplace else in the house for design.

Wow.

How much of the cabinetry was already there and how much did you put in?

The room was bare except for the track lights, flooring and the wood walls.
I have been collecting the cabinets for years- I moved them with me every
time I move.  The cutting table was my first- acquired in the mid-1990s.
And they have a different configuration, to fit the room, in each house.

Thanks, Carole.  Well, it won't look like this as soon as I start a project!
It'll be knee deep in 'stuff'!  And it'll stay that way forever- or until I
loose my mind and move again.

Leslie it's wonderful.  You have done wonders in the space.  I love it
and congratulate you on doing it so beautifully.  The light is amazing
with pretty views outside.  The cabinets are such a great use of space,
and to have everything shut away is ideal.  I'm so pleased for you, and
glad that the customizing of your home is progressing so well.
