Tim has been busy making the trim for the design wall and a slat for hanging my Perkiomen Nine Patch quilt. That class was a misery to take, but the quilt turned out pretty and bright, so I wanted it in the studio. It may not be my best constructed quilt, but it one of the most cheerful ones. The other quilts in the studio are small wall quilts either I have made, or were made for me by friends. Every one makes me smile. That's what I like about them!
It was such a lovely day today, we took a ride into town and went to lunch at my favorite barbecue place, and then to the Home Depot for the supplies needed to make the ironing surface for the studio. It will be wonderful to have the room done and not have projects hanging over our heads. Tomorrow, the blinds come and will be installed everywhere but the living room. They are not in yet. We have been without curtains or blinds since buying the house. No more feeling like we're in a fishbowl!
Here are the latest pictures. We are nearing the end of the job, and it is looking wonderful. I can't wait to load up a quilt and start my machine humming!
