Studio Guest

This week and part of next, I am a "studio guest."  I get to work in my friend's studio!

I've been "going on and on" to my Etsy team buddies about my current house sitting and pet sitting for my friend who has a large sewing studio in her home!  I get to use it when I am here and so I thought I would show why I have been talking so much about it!  You must remember, my "studio" is in a one bedroom apartment that utilizes part of my bedroom for the sewing machine; the kitchen table for the serger when it is not set for dining; and an ironing board in front of my living room easy chair for fabric cutting and embroidery handwork supplies (not to mention ironing and pressing!)  Thus, I love creating when there is soooooo much room!  Enjoy your tour of my friend's craft room:

There is a large home made light table that my friend uses for tracing patterns for rug hooking. (That's her work on the wall above the table!)  I imagine using  the table for photography!  In the corner is a storage chest and the ironing board.
Sewing/Quilting machine and serger (hard to see in this picture) near the window for natural light and more storage!

Another shot of the sewing machine and the embroidery machine next to it.  Beyond the machines are the fireplace, love seat (with sleeping black cat, Griffey) and the reading/library area.


Another shot of the library shelves and reading area.

View from the reading area showing, from left to right, the serger, sewing machine and embroidery machine . . .  and MORE storage! (I never touch the embroidery machine!  It's too complicated for me!)

And back around to the large cutting table and MORE storage!

So . . . how do you like that!  Drooling yet?

Wow...you weren't kidding! That's amazing! No wonder you jump at the chance to pet sit for her:)

Love all the storage. Someday I'd like to get organized and set myself up a place to keep everything. I drag my sewing machine to the dining room table when I sew (not that I sew all that much!). But still, fabrics, yarn, etc., all need an organized home. Someday . . .

Oh what wonderful space! so organized, too! All that space to work in and storage as well! It must be heavenly to work in1

Wow, that space is huge! She has things so well organized, too. I have a lot of space for storage and craft work in our house but nothing like that. I can definitely see why you enjoy working here so much. I hope that the pets are doing well, too.

Wow! All that storage is unreal. I have fabric stashed all over my house, shelves all in one place would be amazing! Thanks for sharing.

I'm drooling! I really love all her storage areas. And I could use one of the sewing machines. Guess I need to go look for a cheap one in the paper... {:-D
