Jayna's Studio

Not only are the women in my quilting group talented and fun, they also have some fabulous creative spaces. Last week, Jayna unveiled her brand new quilting studio for us all and it was spectacular! She had just finished the darling Spools of Thread quilt and the colors coordinated perfectly with the room decor. These hung directly over her sewing machine.

Isn't this the funnest thing? With the chicken wire background, she hung this momento of her Mother's Sewing Machine.

Here's a closer look at the quilt. Don't you love it!

This wooden shutter that Jayna painted and distressed, hangs over her work table. We all loved the collection of vintage buttons she used as hooks.

These are over sized scissors that she mounted on a plaque. I love all her ideas.

I couldn't get the entire wall unit in one picture, so you will see it in thirds. Here is the left side. She bought an entertainment center at Ikea and modified it. I love the color. In the top section. she took out the speaker mesh and put in a chalk board. As you can see, she has some of her stash neatly organized inside.

Jayna's handy husband made this middle section under her window to join the two tall sections. The orange and blue touches are throughout the room.

Here is the right side, with some cute accents on top.

It's so lovely to be in a room that has practical applications, but is also a beautiful retreat. This room is SO Jayna!

She found the perfect rug to tie the who room together. In the back ground you can see the work table her husband made for her out of a kitchen cupboard.

This is a relatively small bedroom that she has made over into a perfect quilters retreat and inspirational space.

This is over the closet doors. I'd say it's good advice!

Here is my friend, the beautiful and talented Jayna, herself. I appreciated her letting me share this rome that she has created with you. I hope you enjoyed it and that you will come visit me again soon. I believe my other quilting friends are getting inspired and are sprucing up their studios too. -Derrith

Oh wow - what a fabulous craft space, I love all the pretty colours and the quirky touches. I'm just a wee tad bit envious... ok, I admit, actually I'm a lot envious!
