Studio Reveal

Some of you may know that my hubby collects rocks and minerals, well he decided it was time to kick me out of the rumpus room so he can turn it into his own little museum. The condition was that he renovate the spare bedroom for me to move into.  We stripped the painted wallpaper off the walls and then he fixed the plaster and painted them. He did some maintenance and repairs to the steel framed window and I had a blind made and the floor carpeted. The best thing is I can now heat this room in winter, so that means MORE stitching!
Not all my stuff has found a home yet and I still have some sorting and culling to do but here's some picks of my room so far. 
I'd like to cover the ugly black chair one day ,
 and get a cover for the timber one and paint my timber cubby holder on the left
lots of my scrapping supplies and magazines are stored here 
stack of some of my scrapping papers plus little treasures.

And while I'm blogging today I also have to show you this cutie,
I've been wanting my own sukeshi doll for ages ...
....isn't she just the sweetest!
She's made of fabric and handpainted by the talented doll artisan "Susie McMahon"
If you have time, scroll back through Susie's blog to see some of her creations.
I hope to one day attend one of her workshops and make one of those cute zozie dolls.

Happy Stitching everyone!
