My Sewing Studio

Welcome to a tour of my Sewing Studio. It is right off my kitchen, in a room designated as a dining room on the plans for our house.  It is one side of an L shaped room – the other is our Lounge room, so I am right in the heart of our home.  My husband and I made the cutting table with a interior door, sitting on two doorless IKEA kitchen cabinets.

It is nice and high (about 930mm – a fraction over 3 feet) which is handy, because it is just what my back needs!

My mother was very kind and gave me this Horn Sewing Cabinet that she has owned since I was young – and the green goes perfectly!

This is where the blogging happens, and where I spend hours tinkering with my designs in Adobe Illustrator.  Any further left and you are in the Lounge room.  Directly behind me are the shelves that house my stash.

And this is my little sewing buddy, Lotta the Moodle (Maltese crossed with Toy Poodle).

  2. Hi Claire,

  3. Hi Claire, have only just found your blog, what a great name! I was looking through your patterns & found your Woodland Teepee. I have the Homespun with this in & made this for my 21/2 year old grandson Chase, for xmas 2012. He absolutely loves it & now he is a year older he has a 16mnth old sister, Zoe & she loves it too.
    I live in Tassie & they moved to NSW last easter. Chase has the teepee in his room & the pair if them spend a lot of time playing in there. I found your pattern very easy to follow & I had great fun making it. Thankyou from me & my 2 gorgeous grandkids. Jennie Dawson

  4. Hi,
    I am really looking forward to receiving your pattern for the CGT collector club.I am purchasing it from Gum Valley Patchwork.
    I also would like to ask a favour from you,Would you be able to tell me the size of the squares used in your wheel of fortune quilt.
    Thank you

    • Hi Rita,
      The squares and the diamonds have 3″ sides, and the diamond is a 45 degree diamond, to form an 8 pointed star.
      I hope you enjoy stitching the CGT stitchery I designed.
      Claire
