The Sewing Room and Quilters Corner

It's becoming so repetitive but every time I post on my Blog I seem to start by saying how poor I am at regular blogging .... honestly the intention is always there but I am determined that this Project will be updated regularly rather than wait til its completed and bombard you with photos!!

I'm also astounded that I now have 296 followers, reaching 300 will have to mark my second giveaway I think ... will need to have a little think about that one.

Anyway on to my latest project and like a number of friends right now I'm working on The Sewing Room, its a lovely two storey property from Julie Bennett at and next door will be the owner's home. I think its fascinating seeing so many different interpretations of the same theme.

This is the property, I just love Julie's houses.

After some trial & error here is the shop name

While the downstairs Sewing Room is being stocked for opening, upstairs which will be the Quilt Corner, is being decorated :-)

Because the shop is going to be quite full and "fussy" I'm going to keep the walls plain white but added these panels to the ceiling.

I have made quite a few quilts for upstairs, they're not true patchwork ( I just don't think I have the patience for that!) but they do look quite effective.

After my recent trip to Nice on the south coast of France where I just loved the fabric & haberdashery shops I printed some small scale Provence style fabric & made lots of fabric bales plus some cushions and a quilt. The colours in my shop were going to be my usual pastels so I'm not sure whether to use these or make a separate little scene for them?

Anyway that's the progress so far, I'm trying to do a little most days so watch this space & thanks again for looking.
