My new girly APRON!!

So, I got tired of messing up some of my clothes from cooking every night... and I have no idea why I didn't think of this before!! I finally made myself an apron! I used some scraps I had left over from some baby quilts I've made. I like it! The pocket is fully lined with a pastel pink fabric, and I even put my label on it! I ordered my "craftygemini" labels a few months back and they final arrived today in the mail! I am so excited! I can put my label on everything I make now!

My Home Sewing Studio!

Here is where all the arts & crafts magic happens ladies & gentlemen!

I am so excited to be able to have my own sewing studio at home! My DH is the best! :o)
I try to keep it as plain as possible and toss all the big fabric bins in the closet so I don't get too cluttered when I'm working on a new project.
You can't see any fabric in these pictures but trust me.... I have a huge stash! :o)

I have a cutting station, a pressing station, my sewing station and a serging station when I'm working in their alone. When I have friends or students over I bring out another table and add another sewing station, it's great!

This is my mid/longarm machine... I still don't have a name for her!
She is great! I have up to 17" of throat space which allows me to get through my quilts (especially the baby quilts) even quicker! The entire setup was purchased directly from the manufacturer- Hinterberg. It sits on the Hinterberg Stretch Frame and all. This was definitely a great new addition to my sewing studio!

This is my creative space and I love it! It is just big enough for me to do what I need to do for any sewing and/or quilting craft without get claustrophobic! It's special to me because it's my own room! No one else comes in here and when I am working in my studio the door is shut and the music is blasting! My husband knows that when I am in my studio I am MIA for at least a few hours. I get natural sunlight coming in from outside and I have a large closet for storing excess some of my supplies. My studio is just perfect with all my crafting supplies and my cd player!
