My Studio Tour for Where Bloggers Create

Welcome to my studio tour for Where Bloggers Create 2015 and thank you to Karen Valentine of My Desert Cottage for hosting this blog hop once again!
A little about me; I am a wife of 23 years and mother to five children ranging from age 22 to age 10.
Primarily, I love to quilt, but I also enjoy embroidery, painting, crochet, and mixed media.
We have a dog, Ranger.

Fur babies rarely talk back!
And our cat, Periwinkle (aka, Perry).

Perry's food dish sits on the counter so the dog doesn't steal it in one gulp!
My studio space is also my laundry room.  

The room is looking exceptionally clean for this photo!
It's light-filled, and when the counters are clear, it feels like a fabulously organized space with everything behind cabinet doors!

My sewing machine sits right in front of a big window with a view to our backyard.
I love having this view.

I have done this blog hop a few times before:  20112012, 2013, 2014.  You can check out me previous posts for this room, but here are some of my favorite features...

This is the cabinet that houses my fabrics, well, most of it.  Don't tell hubby where I hid the rest of it!
Antique glass knobs and pulls are on all the cabinet and drawers.  Much of the collection came from my Dad who was an antique dealer for many years.
Drawers with supplies at my fingertips
The laundry side that only looked clean once for this picture four years ago and has not been clean since!
This will be the last year I will have photos for this studio...

Bye-bye pretty room! :(
...In October we will be moving, and I will have a new studio!!
Here is a view from the doorway.

There is a rough in for a sink so I can wash out brushes.

And I will have a gas fireplace!!
I'm dreaming of having a comfy chair to sit in while I stitch in front of the fire.

Here is the view out one of the windows.  We have five acres of land with a small pond on it.

The view from the opposite side of the door and probably where I will put my sewing area.
The room will serve as an office, library and craft space all for me!!

It's so much fun to visit all the other blogs and see how people organize their spaces and what they like to create.  I hope you will come back for a visit from time to time and follow me along as I plan my new studio space.
Click here to go back to the linky party!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. What a fun room you have! And look at your Longaberger baskets. Your new room/studio looks like it will be a great place to craft or read or just curl up and stare out the windows. Thank you for sharing!
