My studio update

My sewing room is coming along....I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will be this weekend. We painted the trim on Saturday & put it in on Sunday. The last coats of paint were done on my cutting table & shelves, so they are ready.
I joined my very first pay if forward over at Jilly's Space....except now I don't know how to put the pif icon over on my blog. I think I need to go back & read e-how on blogging...LOL. I told Jill this is when my mama would tell me to be patient!
This is going to be a long terrible week at work and I really want to stay home & sew! Tonight I worked on borders; this quilt will be finished by Saturday (it's my goal). Till next time, Kathy

Update on my new sewing very own space!

My sewing room is just a hair from being ready to move in. My DH is painting last coats of paint on the cabinets & cutting table. I am working on my curtains.....they are red, yellow & light green with cherries in the that cherry fabric. Today went to Jean's Fabric & bought more fabric so I can catch up the BOM over at Bunny Hill's blog. I still need to do April's and I cannot is sooo cute. I am really enjoying everyone's blog; been blogging since before Christmas & finally sat down and made my own. Now if I can just get everything figured out. There are so many bookmarked in my favorites, so I just gotta figure out how to list them as blogs I follow.
This weekend I plan to work on two long overdue UFO's that I really really really need to get finished. (just need to bind one and put the borders on one and sent to the machine quilter)!!
Once I will post the pictures of the one that needs binding and the other to follow on another blog.

Okay I still need a name for my sewing room/studio?? Hopefully we will finish it this weekend so I can start moving my tons and tons of fabric in. Right now I keep the majority of my fabric in a coat closet in my entrance. I bought shelves at Lowe's & bins at the dollar store. It worked....but the bins on both ends have shadows on the fabric is hard to see. I can hardly wait until I have all that space....:) :) :)
Hopefully soon I will get some pics posted; that is if I ever figure this blogging out. I am having trouble listing the blogs that I follow. For MONTHS I have been following blogs by adding them to "favorites" I want to put them on my blog as those I like to follow.

Until next time....

My Very Own Sewing Room/Studio.. Help me Name it...

I'm getting my very own space to quilt/sew/ create!! It's just about finished. My sweet hubby is making the cabinets and cutting table. I am so excited to finally have a place to call my own. In 2008 we had our home up for sale & I could not pull my project out without having to clean it all up in case we had a about a pity party! We decided not to sale our home and I got a studio....I have taken pics & will post them soon (when I figure out blogging...LOL). We have a cattle company and behind our home is a barn....there was this woodshop room that we never use, so I convinced my hubby I needed it. That's how it all began and he actually has put a lot of time into my project. I spent a lot of time looking at different blogs with pics of sewing rooms and studios. Thanks to all of you for sharing your pics!!

I chose a soft green for the walls, all furniture is white & the carpet is light beige. I am making curtains with cherry fabric with soft green, red & yellows!! I just need to decide on what to call my very own space....any ideas? It's in the barn...It's theme is cherries...I love the cottage look decorated with cherries... Everywhere else in my home is western decor...goes with the ranch!

I would love to have your ideas of a name for my cheery little cherry decorated sewing room/studio.

Until next time,
