Order Has Been Restored

I cleaned the studio. I even vacuumed.

It had reached the state known as "Critical Mess."

 Before I could clean, scraps had to be organized.

 My little scrap bins are near to overflowing. I think there are a couple more really scrappy quilts in my not-too-distant future.

 Now I can go into the studio and breathe!

 I can show off some of the special things that live in my studio. First, a bowl made by Julie's husband Larry Sefton. I love that this one is sewn together along a crack. This has everything I like, the asymmetry, the color, the raw edge, and the stitching. It's a unique piece.

This is another bowl from Larry. It sits near my sewing machine and collects pins. I love it.  Can you tell I am a bowl freak?

Here are the sock kitties, Monty & Millie.

Here's the inspiration wall above my ironing table. Perhaps you can find the note my son left me that inspired the engraving on the back of my iPad.

How satisfying that must feel and it looks like a wonderful space to create.

My sewing room has hit critical mass and I need to get cleaning. Now that you've had some practice, maybe you can come do mine? LOL

Shasta, when pigs fly!

Mine had definitely reached critical messs. Kudos to you. The studio looks great.

Looks great, are the sloping tables like ones for architects? Maybe a sloping design wall on the far one? Love those clear bins, what a wonderful studio.

Love that red bowl in particular.

Congratulations! All that sorting and folding gets old, but it surely does make a difference.

Happy to see the bowls being used and appreciated.

Wonderfully organised and tidy studio! Can I ask what size are you clear small scrap bins?
