Weekend Playtime...

 On Thursday, one of my students said that she'd been exploring my blog and had seen 
photos of my studio. She spoke of it in glowing terms, and I admit that I was a bit 
embarrassed. I quickly told her that I all bloggers usually only share studio photographs
after a recent cleaning. Don't we all like to put our best foot (feet?) forward?
 So, to prove that my creative space is usually like the everyone else, I'm posting 
pics of my room right after completing Handsome's Princeton Plates quilt top.

There are scraps of fabrics on tables, threads on the floor (Did I tell you I 
really hate that carpet? The only reason it's still in there is because I'd have to 
empty the studio to put in a new floor!), and many notions out of place. I'll have
to put away my rulers and cutters, store the iron and ironing board until the next 
time I need them, clean off all my horizontal surfaces and vacuum. I really must 
vacuum. (Please don't tell my doctor, as I'm not technically allowed yet.)
 I haven't put away the rest of the Princeton fabrics yet because I'm still going
to make two panels that will become trim for the guest room headboard.
I'll also make coordinating pillowcases, so I'll precut the fabric for those, too.
 The quilt top will be hanging in the studio hallway until I can take it to the 
long-arm quilter. The studio will have to wait for its much-needed cleaning. 
I'm taking the weekend off!

I'm going to Coffee Club this morning.
This evening, Handsome and I are going to our friend's 80th Birthday party.
Tomorrow, I'm going to spend the day playing with Tag - and 
Handsome and I plan to relax through the middle part of the day, 
We'll be joining friends for dinner out in the evening. 
Notice that "cleaning the studio" isn't on that list at all.

I hope you, too, are able to enjoy a restful weekend with someone you love.
It's really all we really need.

Sorry Donna, You lose the untidy Sewing Room award!! It looks more like mine AFTER I have cleaned it up!! I want to be more like you....as a tidy sewing room inspires me to sew.

I was just saying to Lindsey the other day that I wonder if people wonder why we never show our craft room? It was spotless - once! It is used and loved and therefore, a mess. Enjoy your day, dear friend. You are thought of often:) Twyla

Oh, my, gosh, my studio does not look this neat even AFTER I have straightened everything up!! LOL!!! Good thing Pollie Dog doesn't care and loves me anyway!! :-))

I'm still waiting on the Untidy part of this room Donna. ;-) Nope...haven't found the untidy section in the pictures. LOL I love your room. If I had one like that, I would never leave it at all to go anywhere.

Enjoy your restful weekend. I hope you are feeling better from your surgery.

If this is a messy studio then I am completely destroyed by the shape of mine at all times. I see a beautiful well stocked fine fabric shop when I see your studio. Complete with bolts of fabric and thread station with lots of color choices is making me a tad bit green with envy (and I look horrible in green!). Complete enjoyment is just what you need my dear...and let Tag or Handsome do the vacuuming please. Bliss Dear...
