Jen's Cozy Studio

It's a play day, sew day!  Jen has invited me over to her home to work on Allietare together (clue 2 post is seen HERE).  I make it a policy NOT to turn down "friend" time if it at all workable in my carless world.  Fortunately, today Mister works from home so the car is all mine and after a difficult time waking, grabbing some fabric and a machine, and dressing, I am in the car and on my way.  It takes me a little over an hour to get there and she is already cut and sewing away.  I have some catching up to do but fortunately she is making two sets.  Every time I am here, I forget to take pictures of this cozy studio so today I am making a point of it.  Just look at how wonderful her loft is.  Someday, I tell myself, someday.

All these beautiful tops hanging over the rail awaiting their turn to become quilts.  It's just yummy.  I spy two from retreat.

She orders pizza for lunch and we take a break and visit while enjoying the sunshine downstairs.  Her home is decorated for Christmas already -- boy I need to get on the ball -- and it is simply lovely.  She loves Santas like I do --- whoohoo.  I just want to start a fire, turn on some Christmas music, cuddle under a quilt and drink a Baileys Hot Cocoa.  Tell me that doesn't sound wonderful just from looking at the pictures?
Another room yields up more proof that a quilter lives here.   Machines and quilts make this spot one I want to play in as well.  Gotta say:  I love my craft and enjoy seeing other's spaces so very much.  It's a great day to share a fun project and I can't believe how the time flies.  I am not able to finish my clue until around 4:30 and hit the road shortly after.  ON A FRIDAY.  Ugh.  Home by 6:15 and ready for the drink and dinner my sweetie has waiting.  Thanks, Jen for a super fun day.  I am so thankful for the chance to visit AND the chance to have my clue done right away.  Now, onto other projects. 


  1. Marvelous day together! When I visited in snow and ice in February you told me of your plans for rearranging the loft. It looks fantastic and so functional in addition to being pretty! Your happy place!! Hugs, Allison in Plano, TX USA

    1. I just get a warm fuzzy the minute I walk in her door. Love it at Jen's house.

  2. What an amazing studio. Sewing with friends is wonderful.
