Welcome to my Sewing Studio

Come In......












You could better appreciate the transformation of this room had I taken "before" photos.

This is and "empty nest" (thank the lord) bedroom that is now a wonderful Sewing Studio.

It can still double as a guest room. One could only hope that the warriors on the wall will protect them in their dreams rather than give them nightmares.

I made the kites in 1980s to decorate a back yard where we were having a themed neighborhood progressive dinner. They are not my design as I did in fact copy them from a book. Sorry, I could not find the book this morning to credit it.

My friend, the organization guru knew about the kites and the last thing we did was arrange the kite gallery. I really really do like the eclectic look and juxtaposition of the kites with the quilts. I will be changing the window treatment next. A Sewing project.

Expect it,

Sharon

  8. That would do me just fine for a guest bedroom :-)

    I was surprised at the Asian art on the walls and I love the look.

  11. This room is wonderfully creative. Love the contrast of your vintage quilts and the asian artwork. It is always nice to have the things you love around you when you work. Very nice job!!! Where did you find those quilts?? I would just LOVE to find some old ones, and in as good a shape as yours are. Are they family heirlooms?

  18. I love the room, but I LOVE the quilts! Each autumn finds me putting aside other interests and taking up quilting again. I have two tops that my great-grandmother pieced, and your quilts remind me that I should finally quilt them.

  19. I found this blog post after Google-ing "sewing studio/bedroom". I too have an empty nest and need to have both a sewing room and guest bedroom. Loved your pictures and got some good ideas!
