My Studio

While blogging around I get to peak at so many quilting studios that you have in your homes, so here is mine.
I'll start with my long arm machine.  It is located in our store.  It's nice for customers to see it and what's going on with it.

In the same room, on the other side is my alternate sewing machine and a serger that I use once in a while.  They are actually my daughters' machines and is where they do all their seamstress work.

Now we have to walk across the driveway into the house to see where I do the rest of my sewing and handwork.

My sewing machine sits on a table that is a multi-purpose table in a multi-purpose room.  It is actually my dining room, family room etc.  When my machine is set up, I do take it down everyday at 4:00 to get ready for dinner.  It's also used for games or just for sitting around and talking.

I've thought that I wanted a room all my own, but I do really like sewing in the heart of the family. Often I have others over to help them with their sewing and their children can play right there next to us, or just outside where it's easy to watch them.  Even if a room became empty upstairs I think I would keep my sewing here.  The table is also quite long, as I have a large family, so it is easy to work on.
One of the things I wouldn't mind changing is my design wall.  I haven't come up with a solution for it.  I do like pictures hanging on my wall, not quilts I'm trying to figure out.

This is a photo of some of my storage areas. I do have more as they are in several places.  I keep buying more yarn, fabric and books.  They all have separate places.

At the end of the day, when the sewing is put away, I relax with my knitting.  Lately it's been warm in the late afternoon and I've been out on the porch enjoying the sun, and Sunday I even sat in the livingroom enjoying a great football game, but normally I'll be in my chair in the family room.

Have a great day!
