Studio Changes and Foreign Travel

Sewing studio before

In a spurt of energy I’ve rearranged my sewing studio. With only one sewing machine (my trusty BERNINA 750 QE), I realize I only need one sewing table.

So I’ve placed the odd table against the wall and freed up a bunch of floor space. (Floor space for visiting grandchildren to set up a train set.) It looks very neat but don’t be deceived. Soon it will be a mess and a small locomotive with a small conductor will take over the room.

One quilt on the move is Arm Chair Gardener featured on the cover of Quilt & Textilkunst Patchwork Professional, a German quilt magazine. My high school German is very rusty but the article about my work is nicely illustrated. What an honor to be included in this lovely magazine!

Visit this Fun Place!

studiodyetableThere is a really fun website you need to visit called Create Whimsy. Currently it has a post showing some of my work, an in depth interview, and  images of my studio. (I even cleaned up the dyeing space so you can get an idea of how neat I can be. Ha!)

Create Whimsy features other interviews with artists about how they create. It’s fascinating to see their work. Give it a look see. I know you’ll enjoy it!
