The long weekend went by very quickly, but we finished laying the carpet in the workroom, sorted out all the boxes of threads and samples and paperwork, and now it's all looking beautiful. I find it hard to believe it's the same room, it looks so much bigger and everything has a home. We had let it get into a bit of a mess, which tends to happen when there are lots of quilts to do. Then we neglected it during the hot weather of summer, so it was an unloved space on Friday. Not now!
The photos are taken from the centre of the room, going around clockwise.
The quilt stands can be moved out to hang quilts, with sideways light from the doorway
I wouldn't have chosen red carpet, but now I like how it looks. It seems to tone the walls down a bit, and next time I'm in Adelaide I'm going to look for some curtains with a modern pattern, something grey and cream with maybe a splash of red. That's not my usual taste, but I think the room needs something bold and modern.
I wanted to get some backings made this weekend, but that won't happen for a while, too much work to catch up on. But at least we have a nice workspace now, I can't wait to get Millhouse stitching away on the next quilt. I just wish I could have another three day long weekend to recover from this one!
