SPRING QUILT MARKET 2009: THE BEST AND MOST FUN PLACE TO BE (part 2)
STUDIO REMODELING (part 2)

MY NEW DESIGNING STUDIO STARTS TODAY! (part 1)

I have to tell you this to all of you, because I am exploding with happiness, joy and excitement.... My new designing studio is underway!

It was a dream for a long time caressed; but for a thing or for another one, I've always postponed it...

Sorry for the pictures that are so dark. I don't know if because today it's the first day of hurricane season, but was pouring... and the sky was almost black!

What was bothering me more was that my original studio was turning out to be small (14' by 22') and I had to take a contiguous room that is joined by a hallway.

This another room was working as: den, library, watching tv, small office for my sister and --on top of all this--, like rock band singing place + computer gaming place + hanging with his friend place + for my son Alex. I didn't want to steel their place, but I hadn't any other choice.

My plan calls for the new room to be the designing studio with computers, many tables, bookcases for magazines, fabrics, and a big inspiration wall ... (ahh... I'm dreaming sooo many beautiful things for it... My existing studio will function as sewing quarters with also many tables, my sewing machines, and a floor to ceiling designing wall to layout all my quilts!! Yippie!!

Let me show you a little bit of my place now; it looks very messy....

I know, fabrics everywhere... what else?

It was really small and needed an update...

I keep my solid threads in one station...

This is the station for my variegated ones and some metallics...

My quilting and sewing books have a special place, but soon will have a new one. Yes!

Today we start by removing all the bookcases with my regular books, and furniture....

And moving everything to the formal living room, that it's huge!

Now it looks like it's Miami again... sunny!

This picture below is a closet in between the two rooms. I think I'll need to put some order here too...

All my magazines that will go into my new designing room for tons of inspiration!

Well, of course that I will keep you posted with everything that follows... I'm now thinking about the color of the walls and furniture. A very light citrus green, birch wood flooring and off-white bookcases and desks. What do you think? Can you help me here? I'm undecided yet.... and I have to go shopping for all that. I would love your opinions!

See to you later...

 

Handmade rocks... so let's keep on stitching!
