They came, They built, They left ...

What can I say!  They arrived again at 7:15 am this morning, they finished off the building and were gone before 1 pm.  It's finished ... almost!



The electrician is due on Saturday, so hopefully we can be operational by Sunday!  Yippeeeee!  (and the blinds are to follow)

A very big thank you to all the guys at Booths Garden Studios for all their hard work to make my quilting studio a reality! 

The Teenage Diva helped me move my frame and a few things in there tonight, but it was dark so I'll try to grab a quick pic in the morning before I go to work.  Especially as my friend Jean visited this afternoon and insisted we put up a couple of quilts to see what it will look like! 

I have a plan for the old office space, and need to instigate that before the electrician arrives, so there will be lots of tooing and froing for a while till I'm settled :)  I'll be sure to keep you posted on how it pans out. 

I couldn't resist the urge to splurge on fabric any longer, perhaps it was the temptation of the up coming sale at the LQS.  Anyway, these arrived in post today, courtesy of Courtney at Seamstar!  Thanks Courtney, they are fantastic!  No regrets at all!


And while I was supervising the Studio this morning, I got a little work done on this top from the LQS workshop I attended last week.


Just borders to add, and I have a cunning plan!

Other exciting news, I've been asked to teach at a quilting retreat specifically aimed at machine quilters!  Thank you Martha!  You can find all the details here

I am *so* happy for you and your new studio! Gosh, it will be fantastically wonderful to have a dedicated space with all of your tools and supplies.

Unless you have graphed out where you want things to be, it's going to take a while to figure out where the "best" place for everything should be. But the journey will be great!

Congratulations!

What a delight! You will really enjoy it, such a sanctuary, too. I think you deserved that bit of retail therapy after all that!

Wow! It looks tremendous, and I can hardly believe how little time the builders were on site!

I hope you really enjoy being in such a great space.
