Since moving this past fall I now have a studio. It is wonderful! All of my fabrics are contained to one room! No more “stuff” as my husband says, scattered throughout the house! I love every inch of it, from the antique buttons to the modern fabrics all tucked away in my drawers (and everywhere else I can hide it).
I love fabric! According to my husband I have too much. I’m not sure I ever could. Wait, is that even possible? If I see something I love I buy it. I will always find some perfect quilt for it!
Not long after moving, my husband surprised me with a new sewing machine. Yep, he is that awesome! He bought me a new Brother machine that also does embroidery. It’s very new to me but I love it. I look at my old Janome and wonder how I every quilted a queen size quilt on it! It has now been passed down to my youngest daughter as she learns how to sew and is working on making her first quilt.
I love going to the flea market and finding antique sewing notions. Sewing machine, scissors, tape measures, and three old irons decorate my studio shelves. When I look at these relics I can’t help but think of what it would be like to quilt without my modern comforts. Then I look at my Singer circa1910 sewing machine and I cringe thinking about how long it must take to thread.
I know how lucky we are to have all of our modern sewing gadgets! Surrounding myself with these antiques reminds me that if they could do it with these tools then I can certainly create something amazing with the ones I have!
My studio inspires me to create! My space makes me happy!
