I have not decided what to call my sewing area.. “Studio Chris, Studio Wheeler, TiannaKeith Studio, Or just “I AM IN LOVE WITH MY SEWING AREA.”
Progress made. Tables came today. I had to “interview” them and move them around about 10 times until I found the place I wanted them.. Right in front of the window so I can look to the right when I sew. Outside is a beautiful fenced in field with horses..
This is the year of the horse. Chinese New Year so I will be watching them horse around while I sew.
I have not hung up much in the house. I do not want to clutter my walls. However I could not lose my identity so I have a Hippie room next to my two sewing rooms. I also hung most of my wallhangings in there. In our group www.tradingfabricpostcards.com that I own, sometimes we swap miniature wallhangings. I love that.. So I plan on filling up that room with my art that I make along with the art I receive from the ladies.
Well four tables came today for the actual room where my Brother sewing machine and my felting machine will be. The cutting area and design wall will also be in here. I have just started working on this.. Here is a before.
I have never played Mother with dolls. I was always the one that made their clothes, quilts and fixed their hair. I never mothered them I just designed them. Over the years I have gotten a collection of dolls. Of course I had to put them in my Identity Room. I could not leave my babies out and in the pile there is one of the first Cabbage Patch Dolls with Xavier Roberts written on the backside. The doll is made of cloth. There is also a red Cupie doll that I got when I was born. If you look real hard you will see Tiny Tears peeking out at you and my baby bed I got when I was one or two years old. I still have it. Metal bed and the sides raise up and down.
Here are some more pictures of my Hippie room minus the black light I bought today. I have not gotten it hung up yet. I hope to fill this room up this year with beautiful artwork and items from the 60’s. PEACE!
I got this vest when I was 13. Oxford Mall had just opened and I went shopping one Sat night and my mother to my surprise bought it for me. It is suede and fringed. I would not take anything for it.
Aunt Jan bought this rug for herself and then she just knew where it belonged. It is beautiful.
I was a BIG X-FILES FAN. Fox had that poster in his office. Here is the entrance to the room where all the fabric stash is.. In the floor are boxes to unload. I hope to have all this straight by this time next week and can really show you some great pictures and by then I should be sewing away. Oh how I love to hear “click click click” the sound the machines makes when it is working!
What a nice space to create and fun to decorate with the things you love and make you happy.

Nice space!!! Anthe view will provide inspiration I’m sure!
Oh Chris, the view from your sewing room is so beautiful and serene. I’m sure your new “creations” will be amazing !!!
Love that guitar quilt on the wall. Saw ‘something’ on the wall above the dolls, too. Now we need to see some pictures of those horses outside your window.
