Come on in!

Good Monday Morning!  Isn't it just a beautiful day?  The weatherman is calling for 62 degrees....WooHooo!  Might just need to crack a window or two and let in a little fresh air.  So while we wait for the thermometer to rise come on in, I just put on a pot of coffee.  Let me take you on a tour of what I've been up to.   WARNING:  I'm not finished with the makeover but I'm getting closer.  Much of last week was spent making the minis you see piled up on the cutting table and making covers for several wicker baskets.  See them?  They stand out with the big red bows.  All the cabinets and tables were wood color, painting them white has really made it brighter in here. Whatcha think about yellow for the walls?
 The ironing station...  I love that its on wheels and can be rolled over to my sewing table for extra support when piecing a quilt top.  The top is just a piece of covered plywood that can be lifted off easily and set aside.  And the little skirt hides my serger and embroidery machine.   The quilt rack still needs to come down and be relocated to the living room.  
 I recovered my chair and added gingham buttons.   Finally made a decision on the  new sewing machine cover.  I also made the pincushion/scrap bag.  The basket on the floor is for the cut away corners and scrap fabric that OCD will not allow in the trash.   All the white fabric you see in my studio was given to me.  2 Bolts! Thanks Aunt Betty! I've just enough left to cover one more basket.
Well I know what your thinking, wheres the 4th wall?  My quilt frame sits on it, and to be honest its a hideous mishmash of different colors of wood.  Nothing on the wall behind the frame, so really there's nothing to see over there...let me divert your attention to what's on the frame.  
 While trying to make quick work of a UFO, Freddy Kruger came in and stuck his hands in my back.  Hopefully the handful of over the counters painkillers will kick in and let me finish.   That is if me, myself and I will quit arguing over the quilting design.  I want to finish quick and keep it simple, but the other two want to quilt it to death.  I'm hoping that they hook up with Freddy and leave with the pain killers.
