As soon as Sydney loaded up her clean laundry to head back to UF, I started moving sewing things back into the studio. It should be permanent this time! Rather than cutting the design walls down 6 inches in height, I hung them horizontally for now. I would like to build some bookshelves into that back wall eventually. There is a staircase on the other side with lots of dead space which could be put to good use. One thing at time though.
Kurt is making good progress on the bathroom. Every so often I help him hold something, but other than that, he has been chipping away at it slowly. I will need to work on some major wall prep which is my fault as I didn't want more tile than was necessary. We sent with a seamless penny tile floor instead of the big step up triangle shower pan that was there before. I tried to find the most minimal round shower enclosure that I could. I guess there just aren't that many choices in round glass showers.
In honor of blue for January, I sewed a blue binding on Streak of Lightning and started the hand sewing process. There is a nice comfy chair downstairs where I can sit and sew while I keep the dog company. She is in her last days now, and can't do the stairs anymore. When she is downstairs we can keep the door open and she loves to wander in and out. Do you have any slow stitching going on today? You should head over to Kathy's Quilts
where she celebrates the patient art of hand sewing.
our bathroom is small I keep telling the husband he needs to take the bathtub out and just put in a shower instead I haven't see the curved door kind
Oh my, if I had a staircase I would have this!
Have fun setting up your permanent Studio :-) So excited for you!!!
Nice work on getting the sewing space set back up, Angela, and happy stitching!!
I like the looks of the new shower. Happy New Year!
So nice to be getting settled in! We are currently looking for a house to move this spring (only a half hour away) and I cannot wait to be in and sitting there looking at it all done! LOL.
I imagine it will be fabulous to be in a studio happily creating away. Your bathroom is looking great. Have a lovely day enjoying your hand stitching. I can see in my mind's eye you and your sweet old dog contented with each other's company.
The studio is looking great! I'll bet the dog enjoys being so close to the beach. Enjoy your stitching before a full week of school.
Enjoy every moment with your fur baby. The shower looks beautiful. We have done some renovations over the years, there always is an interesting moment with them. Thank you for hosting the RSC again. Slowly but surely this year starts will happen and it is the best way to get going and that is great. The best part is reading each blog and seeing all the amazing projects everyone is working on. That is great motivation to do a little bit more, before we know it, all the blocks are finished ready to be sewn together. It is wonderful to be part of such a great community and very humbling.
You & Kurt are so busy all the time. Big projects, little projects. Good for you! It makes me smile to think you're spending time with the dog while hand sewing. It's all about making loved ones comfortable and appreciated, isn't it?
Fabulous studio space! The bathroom is going to be gorgeous! Enjoy your blur binding time!
Yay!!! I like the design walls hung that way... great idea!
