I am excited to bring you Follower Friday today because for only the second time, we are going international!  Yes, yes!  We obviously must do this more.  Please welcome Shruti of 13 Woodhouse Road.  You probably know her for her Sewing Spaces features - I just love seeing those!  She has beautiful work.  Let's learn more about her...

Shruti of Sangli, India

Occupation: I am an architect. But right now I'm a SAHM to my almost 4 year old kiddo!

Significant Other/Kids/Pets : I live in my house with my hubby - Rohit and my son - Aadi... We live on the second floor of our family home... DH's shop is on the ground floor and my in-laws stay on the first floor!

# Years Quilting : 1year +

How you learned to quilt:  : I started quilting in January 2010! Actually, I came down with Chikungunya in October 2009. And the joint pain made it impossible to balance an ever demanding career, an energetic son and a totally unmanageable home! Thats when I decided to give up my job and stay at home... Around the same time, I had started my new venture : Shruti's the 'up'cycle shop... I collected old clothes from people and transformed them into lovely things!  While searching for info about something I came across Elizabeth Hartman's blog! I was bitten by the quilting bug since then and there has been just no looking back!

My entire Quilt...

I love quilting and plan on doing it full time once my DS grows up!

Favorite Completed Project Description: My favorite project until now is the Gardens of India quilt that I made... The fabric was generously sponsored by Hawthorne Threads. The quilt was made and the pattern for it is on sale in my Etsy shop here.


Quilting workstation setup:
I'm one of the lucky people who have a dedicated sewing room for themselves... It has evolved over the months to adapt around me and this is what is has been like for the past few months now...
This is my cutting station with my big "Cutting Edge" mat that I bought only for its color!!! It has a small raised table on it under which are all my essentials neatly tucked in small baskets...

I have a thread rack in a corner... I got it made from all stuff that was lying around in my house...
On the other side is my sewing table...
