Today I would like to share another wonderful creative space with you! While in Virgina last month, I was also able to visit with my friend, Ginny. She and her husband, Jim, invited Shannon and I over for lunch. I must say, it really was a ton of fun photographing these wonderful creative spaces. I know you enjoyed Carlene's quilt cave last week and you are in for a special treat again as we hop into Ginny's bright and beautiful creative space. So let's go!
The red front door and this charming quilt are a cheerful welcome to Ginny's house and the first indication of what's inside.
As you walk down the stairs, you are greeted by these wonderful little quilts.
I adore the rick rack on this quilt.
This is the first room to greet you at the bottom of the stairs. Wow! The fireplace is beautiful and so is the quilt above the mantel.
How about this foot stool that looks like sherbert ice cream? Isn't it the cutest?
Ginny is a retired security officer from the CIA! Whoa!! She has lots of wonderful memorabilia on the shelves and walls beside the fireplace.
To the side of this area, there is a vignette with a quilt Ginny made of her house.
Next, you come to this room. Don't you just love this green couch? It's so fun! Ginny loves bright, cheerful colors, which are a perfect match to her happy and friendly personality.
Her favorite color is lime green. I love it with the purple on this quilt.
I love how this table topper looks on the round table in front of the couch.
To the left of the couch is this sweet little vignette.
And, to the right is this gorgeous quilt. What a perfect place to curl up and stitch.
This is the view of her space when you are sitting on the couch. Are you about to pass out yet?
There are quilts hanging on all the walls. Ginny's daughter plays basketball and they are big fans of the game. Look how cute the net is on this quilt.
Peggy Geier, I know you love these yo-yo's! ;)
This is where I hyperventilated! Oh..my..GOSH!!! Isn't this awesome? I would never want to come out of this sewing spot. What a gorgeous view of the trees through all those wonderful windows. Faaaaaaaaaaabulous!!!
Across from the sewing alcove is her cutting table.
These are so fun
and so is this stool in front of the table!
Then you come to her embroidery machine and wonderful collection of threads. Check out the chair cover!
Across from that is her long arm machine with more windows looking out to the back yard.
Here are some storage areas for ribbons, bits and bobbles and
she also has a little refreshment area.
This leads you past the powder room to this incredible space! The fabric room!
Ginny can sit in this comfy chair and look at all her wonderful fabrics, or take a peek outside. I love all the light that fills these rooms. It makes me feel so alive and excited to sew something.
This is the incredible memory quilt Ginny made for her daughter when she left for college. Her daughter has graduated and the quilt is back home with mom for a little while.
This quilt was made for Ginny by the members of the Cabin Branch Quilters' Guild as a thank you for the wonderful job she did as president of the guild.
Shannon saved all the little schnibbles when the blocks were sized and made this cute lime green schnibble jar.
Here is her living room. She told me she was waiting on some new furniture pieces. I love the quilt ladder, the quilt above the fireplace and the star light.
Like downstairs, everywhere you look there are little art quilts to bring a smile to your face. The two dogs at the bottom of the quilt are her dogs, Lilo and Stitch.
Yellow polka dot bikini! :)
Ok, so check out the sunglasses on the bees. To cute!
Again, Peggy Geier! :)
Thank you for a wonderful lunch and a super fun tour of your creative space Ginny. I had such a great time my friend!
Have a good weekend and Happy Fall! It's the most wonderful time of the year (now you'll be singing that song all weekend, hee,hee,hee)!
