You have some really nice WIP´s too Great OBW with blocks there and I love the Pink one beside it. What design is that?

Elle
It's a PP block called 'Twisted Log Cabin' from EQ6. I just reversed every other block. It's waiting for a border.

I'm now working on the OBW. You can't really see in the pic but it's dragons and I've done some 3D elements in it as well. It's called 'Tipping the Scales'. I'll post it soon as a top because it will be a little wat down the quilting queue! I might have a bash with metallic thread and do some flames in the border which is black. :-D

Really smart space. Enjoy your beautiful sewing school room and thanks for sharing. The two IKEA tables together are ingeneous as is your FMQ area.

How awesome is this!!!! I would love to spend a month in your new sewing space. Let us know when you have your open house--we may all decide to visit! :-) Seriously, I am very impressed with the organized spaces, and especially your work counters.

Just reading that you live in England after living 5 years in France made me jealous! What a lovely life experience.

Your sewing room / studio is a quilter's dream. You are so fortunate to have a large space with lots of natural light to make your creations.

warm quilt hugs, sue in CA

Yes, CT and VA. It's actually only about an 8 hour drive from where she is to where I am. BUT....you see, if you flew into Washington DC, you'd actually be closer to me. You really don't want to go into NYC...too crowded lol
