Hello friends! Today I decided to link up with Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts and her Studio Spotlight Link Up! Here is my little sewing corner in my whole house studio! This is in my dining room. That is the dining table in the foreground which is not only where we eat 3 times a day, do our schoolwork (we homeschool), but it is also where I cut fabric, baste small quilts, lay out blocks and quilt large quilts. A busy, busy table, I tell you!
Here we are looking a little to the left. That built in cabinet houses my dinnerware and serving dishes on the top, a toaster, "phone centre" and fish tank on the countertop, and my fabrics are stuffed in the bottom cupboards!
When I turn around, I see my graphic designer sons at work in our computer/school room. (And you can just see my living room off to the right, and my bedroom door to the left). So we all "craft" in pretty much the same space (Minecraft, quilt craft, design craft, and arts and crafts...).
Looking closer, we see my handy dandy Ikea table with the wide shallow drawers, just perfect for thread and scissors and what have you right at hand.
And one of my favourite bits of my "studio"... my lovely window looking out at the trees!
Thanks for taking a little tour of my little space. It takes effort to all 7 of us (myself and my boys) to live *and* work in the same space (my husband doesn't work at home, but he does live at home, haha). I have to shush my machine when my sons are trying to record a Youtube video, and my sewing needs to get cleaned up to make space for eating several times a day (boys!). I do have a space across the driveway from my house I can haul my sewing machine to when I need some space and quiet, but that doesn't happen *too* often, usually only when my hubby is around. And then who wants to be apart from him? (He's pretty great).
It won't always be like this...someday all those boys will have homes of their own, and guess who is going to commandeer all that counter space and shelf space in the school room with fabric? Haha!! Enjoy all the studios!
