After two months of dust and dirt in the yard, we have grass... and a sidewalk... and a paved driveway.
I went over the punch list with our contractor/neighbor/good friend yesterday and there are just a few things to be fixed before picture taking time.
Of course, there's "stuff" everywhere inside as I try to get more organized when I'm putting things away. And, I'm going through the inevitable... "I think this should go here" only to move things around as I actually start to use the space.
Inside pictures to come (when it's a little more organized).
For the past three months, we have had a little project going on in the backyard. As most sewist and quilters, I have dreamed of having my own space dedicated to the art. I have also wanted a long-arm quilting machine since I saw the first one on Fons and Porter ten years ago.
Well, my dreams are coming close to a reality.
This is my new quilting studio. It is 640 square feet, contains a small kitchen area (no stove), and a small half bath. I have 32' of storage for fabric stash, thread, books, quilt kits, jelly rolls, and other assorted fabric desserts.
My #1 DGD and I carried stuff valuables from the house to the studio for 10 hours on Saturday and Sunday. #1 DGD, Sarah, is the resident artist and she artfully arranged my stash in color sequence. I appreciate her so very much.
There are still 5 lights to install and a few punch list items to be complete... which is why I said it is almost done. I will be glad when it is complete and we can landscape the yard. In the meantime, I need to go sew...
