Fabric Arrives

These gigantic bins hold all my unfused fabrics. The bookcases this fabric lives in may arrive today. Until then, it is staying in the ice cold garage. My chest of fused fabric is also here. But I have no tables, mats, irons or anything to use it, yet. Dave says that his plan is to bring my machines etc. this weekend.
I will be at the Chattanooga Modern Quilt guild meeting today, and will just have to set my brain on believe.

Getting the fabric here is one thing.Getting it up to the studio is another thing entirely.  I am hoping it will miraculously appear upstairs while I am gone. As if.
I am planning on new lights (from the old studio) but will wait a week or so to determine where and how many I will need. The space is much brighter here, because we are not in the woods anymore. There are trees all around but none close enough to shade my room.
 The studio is like 25 feet long, so sharing it with the giant tv space is totally doable. 
The front hall seems to be a good spot for this desk and chair, easing visitors into the future color to come. Our dining room chairs, are here, and the dining table will arrive shortly. This white table also goes upstairs in the studio.

I filled the bookcases yesterday and found three empty shelves. Where are the rest of the books?
My laundry room has been decked out with a folding table. Sigh, I always wanted one. It's the little things.
Speaking of little things, the pups like to sleep in on Saturday. Or everyday.

I have been emailing back and forth with the people who are planning to see our country home. The husband has been delayed again, by weather, and hopes to see the Palmer house next week. In the meantime, the wife has sent me a video tour of the house they are selling in Punta Gorda FL. Enjoy.

    By the time you get the fabric bins and cupboard and the rest of your studio up those stairs, your last 1.2 pounds will have vanished. A dual duty project!

  3. I can't wait to see what you do with color on your new walls. The beige doesn't look like you at all. We have to move out of our long-time rental house this summer and into another, so I'm getting inspired by watching your efficient move and reorganization.

  4. It will be fun watching you make this space your own, and I admit I am glad it is you, not me but I shall probably be eating my words in another six months or a year when we enlarge this little house... I hope you've got some knitting since you've not been able to sew! Without one or the other I'd go stir crazy.

  5. Your new place is beautiful, Melody! Glad you were able to get some color into it already. I have a feeling those walls aren't going to be staying cream colored for long! With less land to take care of, you'll have more time to create. Looking forward to it. Good luck!
