Bucket List

A post shared by Teri Lucas (@terilucas) on

Imagination. So the other day I captured an intimate moment between a dog and a pig. I did try to turn away politely, not staring but it was so sweet that I had to capture the moment. The dog and the pig kissing was suggested by Kelly Ann, the fun-sized owner of Kelly Ann’s Quilting in Warrenton, VA. Thanks Kelly Ann!

My dad. I come by this goofiness honestly.

Do you have a bucket list for your ideal sewing space? Do you have a size of space that would make the sewing space functional and consequently give you the space to do the creative things you want to do in quilt making? I do, and am taking a couple of moments to share with you part of that.

So, let’s talk size and color for a moment. The size of the room is good, though I’d love to ditch the closet in there for a little bit more space. Color oh gosh I just came up with a better plan the other day that would freak my husband out: 3 walls pumpkin orange and one wall (window wall because of the size) a deep autumny purple. Oh my goodness I’m smiling just thinking about it. I love pumpkin orange and having that contrast color would be simply amazing, making the room feel warm and rich. I’m not in need of a power wall in every room I just love the idea of the colors working together like this. Actually it’d be 2 walls pumpkin orange, one wall I want half chalkboard paint/half cork board.

Debby has been sharing this chair for-Ever! And it looks so comfy, with lots of great options to help with the ergonomics of sitting at the machine for hours as we stitch into that amazing creative space we are all aiming for. You know that space, where someone can walk into a room and we’ll never know that they’re there because we are just quilting? That’s the kind of space a good, comfortable chair helps you get into. And besides, it’s aesthetically pleasing!

I’ve wanted a Tracey’s Table since the first time I saw one. The fact that the top of the table can tilt towards me is such a great asset, and will help visualize the quilt as I’m stitching. This will also help the shoulders relax, and that is key. The only issue as I see it, is that the wine glass might slip off the table. I’m pretty sure I can solve that one though.

I already have the perfect shelving unit from Ikea, check out my post.

Having goals and dreams are good.

Happy Quilting!

  1. Great post 🙂 I love the idea of inspiring, bold colors in my sewing space, I just know though that I’ll want it a different color a week from now haha It is presently a plain white (because I’m too preoccupied to do anything about it) with large photos tacked up of my dream dormer, and brightly colored belongings. My chair is a rolling lime green tractor seat, which makes me smile, thinking of my family miles away in farm country.
    Making our sewing spaces functional and inspiring!
