Tea and New Studio

This weekend I hosted a tea for Victoria.


Of course, the occasion called for new tea cozies made from Ikea fabric.  




We were celebrating her new book and her visit to Seattle.  
You can read more about the event here.




The gals got a tour of my new sewing studio.  




It's about 1/3 the size of my old space.




But I'm not complaining!  




I feel very fortunate to have a room of my own.




Malti kept me company while I reorganized my fabrics.





So I had plenty of oldies to give to the gals.

I feel the same as you do. It is nice to have a creative space and when I leave be able to shut the door. Your studio looks great, the quilts on the walls I like.

Oh very nice! So neat and organized too. Sounds like a lovely event, I bet Victoria was pleased. I'm really enjoying her book and your quilts and blocks add so much to the eye candy.

Enjoy that lovely new space :0)
Happy Sewing

I saw this event on Rebels -- so much fun!!!
Victoria's book is great & I was pleased to see the quilts of so many of my bloggy friends. I wondered if you all were meeting at your house, thought I recognized your quilts on the walls. A room of one's own -- of any size -- is a gift. I'd love to see yours in person.

That would have been such a fun event! What a great idea to hold a book party! It's wonderful to see your studio and see all your beautiful quilts brightening up the walls. 15 minutes of Play is such a great book, I loved seeing your quilts in the book.

Cute studio. I wish I had one. Yea, dog fur on the fabric. My puppies would heartily agree with Malti. Have fun stitching! Lovely quilts on the walls.

I love your studio! It's very neat and tidy. Your stash is so well organized. Feeling a small tinge of envy!

Your studio is so inviting. What fun that must have been; I would love to meet Victoria and share her energy and excitement. I am also quite taken with the quilt on your design wall with the plaid border...wish it was on my wall!

Lovely studio although Malti looks exhausted by all that fabric folding...

Sujata Shah said...

Beautiful space showcasing your even more beautiful quilts! It's nice to have a designated room for sewing. Malti looks ready to start quilting!

Looks like the best kind of tea party!
The book, the friendship and the new studio is all worth celebrating. Love the look of your studio, lots of creative space. And I see those beautiful quilts of you making all the rooms of the house a home...
It was also lovely to see your work in Victoria's book. Congratulations on being featured!
