First of all, thanks for all your wondeful comments on my Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks vol. 4 block (whata mouthful!)  I'm in a hurry this morning so I just scrolled through the comments trying not to look too close and randomly picked one.

 I've already notified the winner but to the rest of you- the magazine hits newstands next week so keep a lookout!

And then there's the little matter of my studio. I was hoping for a BIG reveal today but that just hasn't happened. What with having sick kids and then a sick self this week and all. I did manage to make the trek to IKEA yesterday to pick up a few things but there's still more to do and I don't want to show anything until I can show it ALL.

Just for a little sneeky-peeky I'll give you the "before"

Boxes, cords, clothes etc. It's a mess. But you see those 2 big bright things? WINDOWS!  Lots of natural light in this room which I am SUPER excited about. I mean, I do a lot of sewing in the wee hours of the night but with light like this- who could stay away during the day!? Those big windows are the real reason I'm itching to get this room done. I just love going into that room just to stand and breathe in all the light. So lets all cross fingers that I have something to show for my efforts on Monday. :o)

I can't wait to see it! You'll love having your sewing room right in the middle of all of the action. Just add a comfy chair for visitors and it's guilt free sewing. You'll be amazed at how much you get done and how that comfy chair is never empty;) Let me know if you need any help painting - I love painting.
