The latest news on the new studio is that the drywall guys have the walls and ceiling finished. The ceiling has the "knocked down" finish. Hubby has primed the ceilings.

Yesterday we went to the paint store to select the colors. I decided to step out of the box and have the ceiling be a color. The color selected is "simple violet" which is a very light shade. The walls in the walk-in closet will also be this color.

The color for the walls in the studio will be "Pleasant Violet" which is a shade or two darker than the ceiling. Originally I was thinking yellow but as I was looking at colors the violet kept catching my eye. So I thought I can use yellow for some of the accents in the room.

Hubby is priming the walls today....soon the color will begin!

All is taking shape and the excitement is building.

Stay tuned for more updates.......

Quiltlet Finished

Here is the finished quiltlet for International Quilt Auction. It is called Floral Fields. Has a fabric background with silk flowers handsewn on with small seed beads giving a dimensional effect. The grass is yarns also sewn by hand to create the hill and valleys as well as small mounds of grass. It represents fields of flowers with a small pond and white clouds in the summer sky.

Here is a closeup:
