I am back! It has been a whirlwind the past six weeks. I had no idea that moving into a second home would involve so much time consuming detail work. But! We are moved in and my studio is taking shape.
A pivotal moment was when the makings of a design wall were added to the space:
A few days later, I was given the ‘okay’ to begin moving in.
Next I focused on finishing my design wall:
Finally, my new sewing table arrived for my big Bernina. It was custom built by a local woodcrafter and it is perfect.
The only thing left was to commence sewing!
I can’t say that was the easiest part. I thought I might just jump into the art quilt of an Irish cottage that I was starting last fall. But, I quickly realized that re-emerging was going to be a longer process. Fortunately, moving my studio cross country meant looking at all the miscellaneous stuff I had accumulated over the years. I found a group of blocks that just begged using. So, I am starting off simple – designing a lap quilt.
It feels great to be back behind my machine and to be posting again.
Posting once again to Nina-Marie’s Off the Wall Friday.
