New digs means a new look...no I didn't color my hair...I've got a new studio and in honor of Chicago, my new home...a new look for the blog. I'll always be Tallgrass Prairie Studio, but I wanted a sophisticated, modern, city look and my friend Sarah took on the challenge. (and I mean challenge...I struggled making choices on this one!) I love what Sarah did. It's so me and it's so inspirational. Perfect, simply perfect! I hope you all like it too.
The studio is about ready! It's a tiny bedroom, so I pulled out every organizational trick I had to fit everything and still make it work as a place to sew. The ceilings are very high so whenever I could I went vertical. For a short gal, that's a challenge, but with stepstool at the ready, I can do anything!
My sewing table fit perfectly (with mm to spare) into this alcove. Yoda is there as always to watch over me.
I covered two 4 x 8 sheets of foam insulation board for a design wall. Gotta have it!
The closet is for fabric and project storage. Again, I went vertical.
The 5 shelf industrial shelving units aren't really pretty, but they were only 39 bucks and they are tall and give me lots of extra storage. Where did I get all this stuff?
I repurposed things from the old house for new jobs. This magazine rack is now holding my rulers.
It's nice to have familiar things like my dad's thread cabinet and things from the old studio to make me feel at home.
Kajsa's tomtar are there to remind me of my blog friends and how blessed I am to be a part of the quilting community!
I will miss my big orange cutting table, but you make do with what you've got, so it's time to fire up the machine and get sewing!
Have a great weekend and I hope you get some sewing done too!
I'm a happy city girl!
