Inner Studio Work

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar.  Usually, in the afternoons, Mags and I go downstairs and help our mom in her Studio.  First, we play with toys, then we do zoomies, followed by Snooter Jousting and more zoomies.  After that, Mags takes the outer room of the Studio and supervises out there, which leaves me to supervise inner Studio work.  It's a huge job -- that's not only where fabric choices are made, but it's where things are cut, pinned, and pressed.

Mom also has what she calls a "design floor" in there.  I'm very helpful with that, too:

"Looks comfy, Mom!"
" Thanks, Ragnar! "

I was holding the blocks down.  You know ... in case a big wind gust kicked up or something.    

Anyway ... so Mom been working on this big "Sticks and Stones" quilt. Maggie helped her get the top mostly put together, using the larger "design floor" in the outer Studio:

"What do you think, Mags?"
"Mmm ... yeah ... whatevzzzzz ..."

Clearly, Mags trusts Mom's judgement.  On quilts.

Mom sewed that together, then went to add borders. Only ... she forgot the inner borders, sewed the long sides of the outer border on first, and used a whole lot of HBO words. I calmed her down as best I could:

"Check out this cute pose, Mom."
"You make everything better, Raggi!!!"

Before she knew it, Mom had ripped the borders off and was back to pinning -- this time, pinning the right borders on!

"Seriously.  Where was my head?  I've totally lost my marbles."
"No, Mom.  They're in that jar on top of your quilt."

We did finally get ALL the right borders on!  What a hard, hard job, working in the inner Studio.  I wonder if the outer Studio is easier?

"Maybe I should see if Maggie will swap with me."

Come to think of it, Mags will have to help with the quilting and binding, so maybe my work here is done.  For now.



  1. I'm sure you both were very helpful. What would Mum do without you?

  2. Your mom is so lucky to have you to help her while she works on her quilts. That's a pretty quilt, too!

  3. That is beautiful. I know you were a big help.

  4. You all are beautiful, and the quilt is amazing!
