Cleaning the Studio

 Getting ready for this Blog Tour has been no cupcake! My first inclination was to straighten things up. Well, you know how things take on a life of their own? Before you know it, I was vacuuming and doing the hardwood floors. That’s ok, they needed it! I try to do them every couple of years, whether they need it or not. You know I’m kidding!!!!!

So, during this cleaning frenzy I discovered I have two copies of Sew Pretty Homestyle! by Tone Finnanger


This is one of my most Favorite books! This and her Christmas book. So, I’ll be giving one of these as a prize during the Blog Tour. Here’s what you’ll need to do –

I want to see pictures of YOUR sewing room/studio/corner of the dining room! During the blog tour, which begins April 10 and ends, I’m not sure when, post a comment with a link to your blog where you’re sharing pictures of your studio! I’ll put your name in the hat for a drawing.

Add my graphic to your blog (you can do this today) and get an additional 5 chances to win.


Link the Graphic to my blog – Leave a comment telling me where to look for the graphic and I’ll add your name 5 times to the hat. Yes, you still have to share pictures of your studio! 🙂 I’ll trust you to put up the pics on the 10th!

Now, before you think you’re sewing room or what passes as a sewing room is not fancy enough to take pictures of, just remember we all started somewhere. I started sewing on the dining room table with an dresser to hold all my sewing things. I sewed on the dining room table for decades before I got my first sewing room. And my sewing room now is an eclectic mix of odd furniture. If it’s not be used (and sometimes if it is!) I snag it for this room! I don’t have custom made furniture for my room. My sewing machine sits on a 4 x 6 foot table we got from my mom, one of those fold up tables.

And if you’ve been following my blog for a time, you’ll remember I posted pictures of my MESSY sewing room. It was awful. I’m not looking it up to find it, but if you’re so inclined to go thru a few years of posts, go ahead! 🙂

I’d love to see your pictures!

    I’ve been blogging about four months and this is the first contest I’ve ever signed up for. My studio, Cave, is a spare bedroom in our basement. On March 2-5, I wrote about the makeover to my sewing studio.

    Hey Karen,
    I’ve been out of town for several days and came home to find the blog tour!!! What a great idea. I’m so in. I’ve got lotsa pix of my sewing room through the years, so I will post some up tonight or tomorrow. Sorry I wasn’t on top of this sooner, but it was really was nice being away from the computer for awhile, I must admit 🙂 I’ll come back and let you know when I get it squared away.
