State of the Cutting Table!

State of the Cutting Table!

Isn’t it always fantastic to have a really large cutting table?  Mine nearly takes up a whole room in my house.  My great SIL and his dad built it for me a few years ago for a Christmas present.  When he asked if it could be 6″ bigger I didn’t realize he was talking about adding 6″ on all 4 sides.  Wow, it’s big!  When I often use rolled fabric and make costumes for my daughter’s dance team, it is really handy.  It, other times, becomes a great “holder” for my UFO’s and various equipment.  Luckily it slides on my floor very easily I can actually scoot it around on the floor to make more room.

Yes, this is all in a 12′ x 12′ room.  Works for me though.  Look at the positive, everything is within reach.  The whole 8′ x 8′ table is covered by an interlocked cutting mat..love it!

STATE OF THE STUDIO

STATE OF THE STUDIO

Well, this seems a very appropriate day to check on the “State of The Studio”.  I make a really big mess when I am working on a project (kind of like not doing dishes as you are cooking).  That being said, I can’t stand to start a new project, no matter how large or small, when my studio is a mess.  The studio is almost the entire upstairs of my home, and yes, it does overflow downstairs.  The main “game room” holds my longarm, my design walls, my book shelves and longarm thread cabinets along with many other things as well.  Walls are covered with patterns I have printed out, ribbons, notes to myself etc.  Here are some pics of the “main” room.  We will check out the “cutting” room with the another post and then the embroidery/serger/stash room later.  Yes, there are two more bedrooms upstairs and there is barely room for the beds!  Closets are “quilt” full!
