Where Country Folks Create Blog Party and a Pumpkin Patch Give Away

Seems like yesterday...however, it has been 2 months since the
'Where Bloggers Create' party.
If you missed my post, you may click here
for a close up peek into my studio.
This is where I sew, if the project is small.
For denim quilts and such, I move my machine out to the dining room table.
My desk is where I often sit to organize.
The vanity bench was my mom's...
I brought this home in July, since there was no space for it in her room at the assisted living facility.
The dresser beside the guest bed stores shipping materials...
tape, labels, note cards, and tissue paper.

The closet?  Ummm...please, don't ask!
It is full of patterns, thread, yarn, fabric, paint, tins, books, bags...
I worked hard yesterday to contain everything within and to get the doors closed!
This is part of hubby's shop.
I actually know how to use the band saw and have cut some simple birdhouses.
Usually, he does all of our woodworking.

Now, I love using the belt sander...
...especially after a tough day at school!
And...you've recently seen Amy's room that now houses my mom's custom built sewing cabinets.
This is where I hope to organize supplies and my finished projects.

It's always fun to take a peek into another artist's studio.

Natalie,

Everything looks so neat and organized. Boy I'd better get moving and get my area cleared out of all the UFO's that have been cluttering my area.

I love your old furniture you use in your creative place. It just fits with what you do,and is even more special that it was handed down from your mom. Very nice:)

Hi! Thank you for your kind comments on my creative space. Love your space too - especially since some of your pieces belonged to your Mom. That alone has to be so special just as your creative space is.

I loved getting a peek into your creative space! Very neat and tidy :0) I also have things stored in my closet and that's where I drew the line. LOL! No pictures of that on my blog :0) I love your dress form. I am still looking for the perfect one to display next to my antique sewing machine.

Thanks for sharing with us!!
