What colour is this?

I just finished my newest all leather Dana Wristlet Wallet and have no idea what to call this colour. I would love to hear what you think it should be called.

Here's is what I have so far:

Butternut Squash

I plan to list this in my shop on Monday so if you can think of anything, please let me know.

My New Bag

I finally own my own Urban Pagoda - my Signature line.

I did this one in leather and it has a butterfly cutout. I even experimented with some beadwork.

Paid for by my advertising budget :-)

What is the common Thread?

What do these five items have in common? Well other than the fact that I created them, they are all featured on Treasuries right now on Etsy! How cool is that eh?

All are still available in my shop!

The Studio Revealed

It is still a work in progress but I decided to share my space with all of you. Way back in April I showed pic of my studio when it was in the downstairs location. Now here it is in the upstairs location. I hope you like it.

First up is my drafting and cutting table. Underneath I have my filing cabinet, drawers that hold tools and a book shelf for my drafting and sewing books.

You can see a wooden stool that I covered. I rarely sit when I'm drafting or cutting though. Whose ideas was it to use such a light colour anyway. It's a good thing I really don't sit on it, I would hate to see rubbed off dye on it.

This is my desk where I update my blog, edit pics and browse Etsy. I cleaned up the mess that is usually there. I would love to keep it that cleared.

I got that chair at a thrift store and plan to cover the yellow parts. I will probably go with a faux suede red colour to add some contrast.

I fell in love with the lines even though it is not a very pratical office chair because it is not on wheels.

My inspiration board may move so that I can add another shelf to place my stuff. I sure have a lot of stuff!

The desk to the right of my desk is where Agent 31 does her crafting. It also is where my BabyLock sits.

This is the space above my desk. I really need to re-organize and make it work to my advantage. Perhaps you can suggest something. I am so bad at optimizing my space.

I was thinking that maybe I should put my finished goods up there. What do you think about that?

Or should I just put the obvious, books! Books on shelves, what a novel idea? LOL.

Next up is my sewing area. I have my BabyLock, my Elna on a shelf above and beside I have my industrial Leather machine KOBE. I plan on getting another industrial soon to replace my BabyLock.
Since shipping is a part of my business, I needed a shipping area. This is where I weigh my packages. The drawers are great for housing my shipping items such as bubble mailers and anything that goes out in my packages.

That was an old dresser that belonged to my daugher. I covered the front of the drawers with a cool wallpaper that has maps on it. I love the red and taupe colour. I changed the knobs to the red ones you see pictured.
Don't you just love the big 'ole clock? I have a thing for clocks, the bigger the better for me.
I updated all the switch plates and outlet plates to silver too. I hated what was there before.

The basket above is where I put my small outgoing packages that will fit.

This is where all the pressing is done! Underneath I have shelves that I keep my interfacing and other pressing supplies on.
These shelves above the pressing station keep my pressing tools at hand and in sight!

The next photos show where I keep my overflowing collection of fabric. Seriously it is getting out of hand. I even have fabric in other rooms!

Ladies and gents, get ready for my AREA of SHAME!
I have this huge t.v. in my studio that I don't need. My husband is supposed to remove it when he finishes the den. Do I have to wait another 6 months before I end up moving it myself?

Once that t.v. and the base that it rests on goes, I will be able to get more of my stuff organized. That's how I hope it will play out.

When I'm in my studio I just listen to the t.v. anyhow.

I can't wait for it to be out. Of course it will be replaced with a smaller t.v. - I do need to watch/listen to my soaps after all ;-)

So there you have it, a revealing look into Sewlutions' World Studio!

Meet Buddy

The duck with no luck. Well that is how it started. He is a sample I made for a wholesale deal gone bad. He didn't fly the coop but looks happy watching over me creating in my sewing room.

Speaking of sewing room, I finally finished painting the new upstairs location. My Husband was supposed to do that back in April but you know men. You can glimse a bit of the colour on the left handside of the picture.

I will be revealing the new studio soon, once I get everything in order.

Did I mention how much I hate painting?
