in the studio

..actually I call it The Work Room, but that doesn’t ring nearly as good title-wise, and I will have to admit that I don’t have quite enough confidence about my creating to call it The Studio (wish I did!).  Anyway, a marvellous day spent making & creating today, all in preparation for the Dunedin Online  Pop-Up Department Store this Friday & Saturday. I have made a few new Totes from some favourite fabrics, a new Cloud Cushion from some Scottish inspired tartan, and am currently fiddling with a pattern for padded covers for 10″ Tablets.

This is by far one of my favourite happy places, and I have spent far too little time in here over the past (let’s face it) year. Slowly I have been rearranging the room as it has become very full over time, and needed a hearty clean out. It was time for a re-design. It’s getting there, and I look forward to blogging a ‘reveal’ on the finished space. Today I found myself sewing, singing along to the iPod, yanking at piles of treasured fabrics, drinking tea, and completely loving the details of my surroundings. So here, a few of those details as they struck me today.
