New Studio Space

At last , it's done !

I am now the proud tenant of a little bit of workshop at the Arts and Crafts Centre where I sell my things ( sometimes) . I have taken a bit of time taking things there and setting up, about 6 of us are taking up studio spaces so we will have a little creative community. My Husband is thrilled because he now has unresticted access to various parts of the house which were full of my sewing things- most notably our dining table...

I am also thrilled because I won't spend ages getting it all out and putting it all away again. I am really looking forward to making things alongside other makers , it should be quite exciting. I usually show things I'm making to my family and their feedback is limited by what they are watching on tv/playing with...It generally goes along the lines of " Very nice, What's it for ?"

I think I may have mentioned my storage obsession before, I've had such a nice time putting all my fabrics and threads in boxes and tins. Now it is all set for action next week.

My work in the shop has moved onto this nice dresser which I'm sharing with a lovely lady who makes jam and paints fans.

We have also brought in some lovely old bits of furniture to display the craft work in the shop - looks great doesn't it ?

I particularly love the red sofa...

Hopefully my next post will be full of creativity , with lots of lovely new things, or at the very least I will have made my curtains!

love Louise x
