Adding to the Studio/Gallery piece by piece…

I’ve officially been here in Bedford for two weeks. It has been time spent cleaning, unpacking, and arranging Little Old Lady Quilting Studio/Gallery to get ready for visitors. I’ve been sewing a lot of the time too.

So I thought I’d show you a little of the display furniture that I’ve been accumulating:

Of course, first there is Ruby. She is my HQ Avante 18 long arm machine and my best friend! Though she was not cheap, she was an investment for a lifetime. (Mine anyway)

The Cabin came with a set of twin beds in the loft that we will never user for guests, so I appropriated them for the Gallery to display quilts on.  They will eventually be painted for more color….

This corner cabinet was an eyesore, until I got Sherry Miller of Sherry’s Chairs and More to come do her magic. she is not finished yet, but already the pieces of furniture she is painting are coming to life with color and whimsy!

This old “This End UP 3 drawer Chest of Drawers was heavy and dark and ugly. But it is starting to sing with new life now. I love these colors and there will be large Dahlia blossoms on it a well….  I’ll use this chest to store placemats, napkins, and etc.

My other big purchase, a retractable Design Wall. Now I can pull it down to work on a project and when I am finished I can roll it up out of the way!

Here is my latest series of work. Six hanging tapestries based on my oil paintings of Rural Virginia. It is great to be able to work on them side by side in the early stages to coordinate fabrics and colors across the series.

Last but not least, the other expensive piece I bought — an antique cabinet for displaying folded quilts in. Thanks to the folks at Needful Things Antiques in Bedford, VA who delivered it for me this week! I already love the color!

So that is where I am today. 2 months until my grand opening on March 31, 2018 10:00am – 4:00pm. I still have a ton of stuff to make, and some friends and family to collect things from. But it is slowly coming together!

Create Beauty and fill the World with LOVE!
