In order to get myself motivated after my journey into Europe I decided that it was not only time to tidy my studio but also more than time to move my studio around a bit...somehow I wasnt using the space as well as I could and I am pleased to say my plan has worked very nicely.
I have a big bookcase type cupboard in my room with open cubicles which over that last year have filled with piles of fabrics and threads that need a) tidying and b) putting away...so with those boring jobs done I have had time to rearrange the cubicles and fill them with stimulating things which I thought you may enjoy seeing with me...
New (coming soon) fabric from Whimsicals, not sure when this range will be out as I was lucky enough to get this early. I love wooden bobbins and how I wish I had all the ones my grandmother had and some crow items which I love...crows that is.
I am not much of a gardener, in fact I am a total indoor girl becuase I dont like to have dirty nails and I am not good out in the sun for too long but I do love the idea of indoor gardening. Please meet Norman Gnome and friends.
Most of us seem to love birdhouses and I am no exception..ok look I spy a quick unpick girl in amongst all those odd items, she is a reject poor thing with a little chip on her head so she became mine! Spot the cute little tea boxes, I love them and have quite a collection...somewhere in the garage!!
This framed stitchery is one of the blocks from Magical Christmas and some yet to be used wool threads.
My trusty paintbrushes waiting for me to pick them up and create the next fabric collection....well not the next as the next is already designed but the next next collection!
This clock which ticks away in my studio makes me remember when I was little and used to sit with my embroidery while my grandmother had her afternoon nap, when she awoke she would check my sewing progress. I think if she could see what I am doing today she would be very pleased with me.
Wonder what you are doing today?
