Here is where I will be setting up my long arm...when it arrives on Thursday. Since the table is so large I think it is going to have to go into the basement.
I know you are curious about the carpet, so I snapped a closeup for you. It is quite groovy, isn't it? I pretty much hate it. I would love to rip it up and polish the concrete beneath, and maybe stain it? But I am afraid of how cold it will be down here in winter.
Do any of you have a basement studio? How cold is it in the winter? I can put different carpet down there....or maybe throw rugs?
There is a little wood stove, so that will warm things up.
Here is a 10 year old and a big cat.
Wood paneling and saloon doors. Everyone likes saloon doors. the kids have been having a blast storming through them and demanding a whiskey like they are old west cowboys. I do admit that I started it. I also believe the paneling will get a coat or 2 of paint. My husband says it is madness to paint it and that I should just remove it, but it is another situation with lots of glue and paint is easier than drywall.
A tiny door for little people to hide.
I found this quilt top downtown for $20. It is all hand pieced and at first I thought it was scrappy, but it really has a pattern, doesn't it?
I picked this up too because it was $5. This one is machine pieced, but it looks great. I think I will just decorate with it....or maybe combine it with a star segment I have in my household goods.
There is a window, so a bit of sunlight can peek in.
There is a little powder room too. Ellie likes to hang out under the sink in the cabinet. I have to remember to collect her when I go in and out of the basement. All in all I think this space has heaps of potential. My Bernina will be living above ground in the sun room so I will be doing quite a bit of up and down.
