Here is a previous post on my Maryland art studio,... this new one is much larger and much more beautiful. More art, creating and inspiration will flow in this room!
This is the TURQUOISE table where all the sewing is done. I have the table in the middle of the floor,... see I have a problem, 1) Sitting & sewing while facing the wall & 2) Sitting & sewing while my back is facing the door. Am I weird or alone in this? I feel like I want to leave the door open and see what's going on in the rest of the house.
This little shelf houses my wedding card "Tiffany" box, some antique cameras, some trim I bought for absolutely no reason other than how CUTE it is, a magnet board that will someday display some lovely inspiration and those sweet Ruby strips for a future string quilt.
You might recognize the cabinet and the door from our old dining room. They fit perfectly in this room!
So,... that's my new art studio. So far I have been much more productive in this room (even with the new baby) so expect lots of pretty posts. And there is a good chance I will reopen my Etsy shop with a new selection of items. Stay tuned,....
My Sister-In-Law discovered this little quilt shop, Quilt Asylum, and I HAD to get there ASAP!
She sent me a picture of her fabric loot from her visit and I got soooo jealous,... so I went a few days later with my Mom and my little man (who was SO good) and got my own loot to make her jealous. :)
You can see in the picture above that this shop makes fat quarters in EVERY fabric they carry!! Uhh,... brilliant I say!

If you're in McKinney, stop into Quilt Asylum, I dare you to walk out empty handed!
My brother-in-law and his wife came out from Maryland to visit last weekend. It was wonderful for Cash to meet his Aunt & Uncle.
We spent Saturday at Possum Kingdom with my friend Megan and her family for a little wedding celebration before the big day in HAWAII!!! YAY! I'M GOING TO HAWAII!! That reminds me,... I have to start working out....
Sweetest baby ever!
This is our first family portrait. I haven't really been ready to be photographed, but this seemed like an opportunity,... halfway disguised.
Cash LOVED to be outside!! It was a bit cooler at the lake than it is in the metroplex, with some wind and cloud coverage, or we would spend more time outside. Waiting,... waiting,.... waiting for Fall.
We spent Sunday at my parents house for a fish fry,... totally should have taken pictures of all. the. food!!! It was so good! Fried catfish, homemade fries and hush puppies,... coleslaw, cheesecake, watermelon,... oh my! I loved it all,... Cash? Not so much. :( Sorry buddy!
On the actual 4th, my husband and his brother went to the Rangers/Orioles game where they paid $85/ticket to watch their team lose,... sorry guys! And my sister-in-law and I hit up the movies for Water For Elephants. I loved it!! It's been a while since I read the book, so I'm not too sure on the accuracy, but it was still really good! Recommended. No fireworks were seen,... but I would still say it was a successfully festive weekend! Thanks Matt & Jess for flying all the way out here for some fun in the sun, thanks Matt, Holly, Dad & Mom for all the yummy food! Thanks Megan, Pat & Ken for hosting such a great time at the lake! Thank you Robert Pattinson for looking hot in WFE. :)
I hope you all had wonderful, safe holiday weekends too!
