….even my studio is a work in progress…..

I am a bit late in posting pictures of my studio, but the small town where we live, in Abaco, Bahamas, the hardware stores (and many other stores) close at noon on Saturday. So my husband and I spent our morning searching for items for the many do-it-yourself projects we have going on…….my studio is one of them……..

On the table in the middle I do everything from sewing to quilting to painting fabric to flameworking. And of course, Tesi the cat, has to inspect everything I am doing. Cat hair is just like batting right? She was very intrigued by all the pictures i was taking and managed to get in as many as possible.

Over to the side is an antique dresser where I store supplies for jewelry and some favorite vintage fabrics that are extra special. Next to this dresser is my grandmothers rocking chair .

In this corner is a neat little window seat where i can look out at the birds and browse thru some of my favourite books. On the wall on the right i hope to one day put shelves, for more storage, and a cork board with loads of inspiring pictures. The picture on the easel is a mixed media self portrait i did several years ago.

On the shelves on the back wall are my collection of Blythe dolls and a collection of vintage mason jars with different ribbons and trims in them. There is a website called http://www.ribbonjar.com/ that used to mail out a jar every month filled with ribbons and trims that all followed a certain theme. They haven’t done this in a while and i really miss it!

Another shot of my messy work table from the sewing side with an art quilt, in progress, at my Bernina. The wall behind the table has two closets for losts of storage.

Down a flight of stairs from that workroom is my quilting room where ‘daisy” lives….my long arm quilting machine…..everyone names their long arm machines don’t they? Also, down here are many bolts of fabric, batting, and quilts waiting to be quilted. Tesi, deserved one last shot since she can be quite the muse….actually she probably considers herself more of an instructor 🙂

  1. Very nice — especially love the light you have in your upstairs studio. Thanks for sharing your studio on the virtual tour! Come visit my studio on my blog and share a cup of virtual tea with me. Blessings!

  2. My cat Cosmo (who looks pretty much exactly like Tesi, only he has a black smudge by his nose) is my studio cat too. I like your built-in drawers and the lovely bright light you have. Thanks for letting us visit!
    Cheers

  3. Wow, you have a great looking space Kimberly! It's so cheerful with all the green and white. Oh yes, I've seen the ribbon jar specials but never managed to order their monthly ribbon jar. They look like fun! Thanks for visiting my studio. Cheers.

  4. Wow look at the amazing fabric selection! It looks like a store. I completely understood your shopping problem, many places close by noon in germany as well. Happy creations from tj
