While the guys were working on the studio in the basement, I was up in the loft putting blocks together. This is going on a white coverlet in my bedroom. I think I'm going to like it........ I've been so use to the soft pastel colors and cottage style that it is getting some use to the brighter colors in my home.

I forgot that I had bought this last year. Fell in love with the colors, Etching by 3 Sisters, just waiting for the right pattern to come along. Will it did .....
This will be my new quilt for my bedroom. I think it has that lodge look...lol
I went up to the loft to put fabric in the cabinet but got caught up with the moda fabric. Went to the EQ7 came up with a pattern and started cutting for the blocks. I guess I will finish putting the fabric in the cabinet tomorrow. Some days are like that, stop what I'm doing and start sewing. GEEZ, I guess I can say I'm back at it again.
I got this far with putting my room together....lol I even made myself a design board.
That caret has to go... I love wood floors with area rugs.

I received this in the mail today. It is so darling..... I love angels!
It is going to hang in my new studio.
My friend Joyce appliqued this..... Just look at those tiny flowers that she made. No way can I do that.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU JOYCE!! I LOVE IT!!!!
Anya even hung the quilt that I made her..... What a sweetheart! Love that pine ladder in the corner. I want one.......
Great little sewing area.......
Cutting table, Anya's husband made the table also. Notice the storage above the door, great planning for a small space. The cabin is 16 x 20. I don't think I would ever come out of this studio.
NOW this is my studio....... lol will the start of it.

Can you imagine quilting in this little cabin out in the wilderness??? I don't think I would ever come out. I love it! Anya's husband built this for her......
Look at that design wall, so much room.
The background on this business card is a quilt that Anya quilted for a customer. Beautiful work!!
Anya is a quilter friend of mine.

What is a country girl to do when she is all by herself out in the wilderness, no one to talk too, ride a bike, play bingo, or visiting family that live miles away, etc Make herself busy piecing, decide to put Garden Spice together myself instead of sending it out..... all the block are pieced, just have to applique the flowers on the solid block. I want to use this for a fall quilt because of the colors.
my sewing room together, it is located in the loft area, this way if it gets messy no one will see it...... lol
Yeah right!! like I have company everyday around here. In the spring the old carpet will come out and wood floors go in....... my studio is first. Priority!!
Machine table is upside down cause I had to side it up the stairs to get it into this room (cause I'm all by myself) isn't that a song????

I guess I'm getting back into the groove....... New business cards which I made up from of my old designs. Not to bad!
These came in the mail today. Kimmy Brunner's ovals. Now I just need to get my machine up and running. Just purchased the IQ computerized system today, a little excited about that. I can record my own design and the machine will quilt it out for me. What fun!!

I've had fabric for this quilt for a year, cut out the blacks with the intention that I would get it put together for this fall ......... will with moving and all it is sitting on the shelf. (!) light bulb just went off...... I think I will ask a special friend if she would finish it for me then I will have for this fall to hang in the loft area.
