A Rainy Day Update...

Brynwood Needleworks - Studio

I haven't done this in a while...shared photos of the studio. In case you haven't been in my playroom before, allow me to show you around.

This view shows my cutting table (with my brand, new, aaawesome Martelli mat), and the most restful, happy view of our back yard out my large window. To the right of my cutting table are two sets of stacked drawers that now hold tools and hardware for my handbag and wallet projects, as well as other trims and small bits and bobs.

To the left of my cutting table is the first of five fabric shelves I purchased from Sandy's Quilt Shop when they closed business a couple of years ago. (I can't believe it's already been that long!)

Moving to the left, you can see more of my fabric shelves; Kenny's table in front of them; Destiny, on her own Quilter's Dream cabinet; and the pineapple quilt in progress.

If you swing right from my cutting table, I have my desktop computer in the corner, with my thread cabinets on the wall and in the foreground. A girl can never have too many thread choices, you know.

When I'm sitting at my sewing machine, I have the "Tower of Folded Fabrics" in front of me; my serger in the corner; the pattern cabinet that Mom gave me years before she passed with an antique thread cabinet on top of it; and my wall mounted television for those all-important afternoon installments of General Hospital (my one guilty pleasure)...

and that last shelf unit with novelty fabrics. It wasn't until after everything was installed on this wall that I realized I didn't have enough clearance to access my dvd player on the side of the television. So much for watching instructional videos - or an occasional chick flick - while I'm in the studio. I'll definitely plan better next time.

It rained all day yesterday, so my usually sunny studio was a little more on the gloomy side. However, I was in Harbour Heights, sewing my my girlfriends. Three of us (Jamie, Betty J and I) were sewing labels onto Dress A Girl dresses; matching dollies with doll-less dresses; and identifying how many dolls still have to be made. It was a great day away from the studio, in spite of the damp weather. I'm looking forward to giving you an update on our current dress drive very soon!

I'll be back in the studio to work on my pineapple quilt today. And here, you thought I didn't know how to juggle...
