Here is what my studio or sewing room looked like a few days ago. Please, if you begin to feel dizzy....... throw your head down between your knees and breathe slowly. It's a disaster, I know. The little person on the floor with the cool striped hat is Amelia. Don't worry, she has all her shots so there's no chance of disease or lock jaw. My oldest sister Jerri Lynn will be here on Wednesday, you know the kind of sister that cleans for the Hell of it? Yup, her. The last time she visited she made me pinky swear I would keep it 80% clean............. of course my Mom, sister Debi and I all swallowed our tongues laughing with that suggestion. So, we whittled it down to 60% clean.
Before I go any further, I must explain something about my studio. First of all, it's outside and not in any way shape or form connected to my home. Thank God. It is a building my Dad had built for my Mom to have a little antiques/Crafts shop in a few years ago. It has no heat but hallelujah it has an air conditioner........ I do live just a few miles above the Florida state line. So, when there is a get together, birthday party or Holiday the things lying about the house get sent out there. Normally this means my two boys........ Coley who is 13 1/2 and Kavin who is 12 are the transporters of said stuff and flop the stuff anywhere there is a bare spot. Hence........ the photo above.
Now, here is part of my studio this morning. It's a little better.......... but not yet 60% up to snuff. If I didn't hate painting .......... I'd paint the darn thing. It's brown. Just brown.
Off to a better note........ my lovelies! I went to our favorite Quilt shop this weekend for their annual fat quarter sale. Twenty five for twenty five. Her fat quarters were for $1.00 each in counts of 25. You could pick out what she had already cut or have it cut from the bolt. I bought 50! I want to cut into these so bad but for the time being........ I'm happy just looking at them! Wish me luck on my sewing room....... I have to make room for my new serger that will be here in a couple of days! WOoooo HOOooooo!
