New shabby chic quilting room. Won't he just love it?

It's my foyer!
I want to have a machine set up and a quilt in it to be quilted all winter. No not the same quilt all winter but a bunch of different ones :=) It will be easier for me just to run in and quilt a little at a time if I only have a little time. My friend Sage says that you can get a lot done in just 15 minutes a day!
My Christmas Tree Skirt from yesterday.


I am not sure what is going on with this piece but it seems to be dragging and not moving around easily on the machine today. It looks jerky! That's OK it is going to be on the floor under a tree and covered with lots of presents! So I wonder why I thought I had to put so much work into it???


Well I am just certain that Danny will be so thrilled to come home today and open the front door and see this!!!! After all my Christmas present from him last year was about a zillion new receptacles upstairs in my sewing room...........

Who cares? I can see the TV from here. I can quilt a few stitches while I am cooking and doing a lot of other close by activities!!
I am happy with my decision. At least it isn't on the dining room table.

Creative use of space that's used only to 'pass through'.
Sage is a wise woman and you're smart to take such great advice. When we had the old ham house turned into a studio for me, my work load increased because I could leave things out with no fear of animals messing about.
It's lovely to have a space where I can go and be away from the phone and other interruptions.
Dave won't come to the studio on bad days because he doesn't like going outside...it's my saving grace -Laughing madly-

That room is fantastic! I love all of the white! And the Christmas tree skirt is gorgeous! I love the colors against the white. BTW, your meander quilting looks perfectly fine, too. You are just nitpicking your own stuff, you know.....
