Welcome to my studio! A sunny quilty place to indulge in what I love to do!
My Horn of America cabinet makes me as happy as
Ralphie on Christmas morning with his Red Ryder B B
Gun! It has a large leaf out front, which is folded down
here, but can be opened when quilting large quilts.
There are lots of white cabinets beneath each
workspace to provide plenty of storage for larger pieces
of fabric, fabric for special projects
and my collection of wool.
Gossamer-like ribbons hang from the pull on my ceiling
fan; they sway gently when the fan is on and add a soft
dimension to my room. My granddaughter Mia is
fascinated by them!
|The color palate in my studio is
ivory and white, which gives me a
neutral backdrop to add and
change colors in the room
whenever inspiration hits. The
ivory and white are also very
relaxing and don't compete for my
attention when designing a quilt.
Can't live without this map chest
with 11 drawers, as it's perfect for
storing my large drawings &
templates, rulers, interfacing,
fusible web, large graph paper.
A new lamp on the map chest
adds to the vintage shabby chic
look of my room.
I hung an ivory sleigh over the
green thread boxes to hold my
Beatrix Potter thimbles from the
Franklin Mint. Now I can see
them all the time!

My drafting table is perfect for designing patterns and art work. A light box underneath is wonderful for transferring patterns to freezer paper. An
inspiration board above my desk is great for tacking up ideas. The card catalog cabinet & the thread caddy to the right provide lots of storage for many
colors of thread.
Shaker boxes store wool threads,
embroidery floss & top stitching
threads for embellishment.
In the middle pic are portable
appliqué kits that I made from
unfinished wooden boxes- very
A favorite picture of a polar bear
and little girl is over the map chest.

|This is a commercial storage unit my husband bought which provide spacious storage for my fabrics & batting.
I framed and placed some interesting pictures on the drawer fronts.
