I really wanted to work in my studio today and do some machine embroidery…but it has been raining here and I can hear thunder rolling in from the distance. I won’t turn on my sewing machine or my embroidery machine if it is storming…even though we have them protected with surge protectors. So I thought that I would take you on a tour of my studio instead…
It is my place to do some creating with scissors and thread…
Or some painting….
Near my sewing machine is my scissor collection…some are vintage and some are new.
Love the tiny vintage basket that hangs near the scissor collection. It has old spools and old buttons, a vintage pair of scissors, a piece of vintage lace, and an old piece of a quilt tucked into the tiny basket.
On the wall around the corner is where my toy sewing machine collection is…
On the other corner wall is another toy sewing machine, but this one is not vintage. I have several old spools displayed with this sewing machine…I found all the old spools at the huge flea market that is here in town in May and September. My good friend, Linda, made the stitchery that is hanging from the peg rack for my birthday a few years ago.
So when I am working at my embroidery machine…this is what I see….
On the other wall across the room…is this old cedar cupboard that my sister gave to me many years ago with 2 vintage Singer sewing machines on the top that have curved wood covers and more of my spool collection. The cupboard has fabric, thread, baby blankets, and kitchen towels in it…that are just waiting to be embroidered for customer orders and for my shows that will be coming up in September, October, and November.
This space was first decorated back in the days when country decorating style was the big in thing and I’m so wanting to make some changes in this room. I’m really wanting to bring some white into my creative space…so the plan is to paint the 3 shelves in this room white and making some white curtains. Also have a wood cutting table that will be painted white too…but I don’t think that I can bring myself to paint this old cupboard white.
Thinking that on the Spring days that it storms…those days will be great ones to work on a makeover in my studio!! I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
Until next time……. blessings from me to you, Cindy
