A Studio Is Born - Part Two (of two)

A Studio Is Born - Part Two (of two)

 

How can it be the end of August so soon when I still have so much sewing, spinning, painting, decorating, gardening and cooking to do? At the beginning of the summer break I wrote down a ‘To Do’ list yet not many of the entries seems to have been completed so far!!!

 

Still, one major project has taken shape and has actually been the main reason why the other ‘less important’ tasks have not been tackled and that is the building and decorating of my new Art Studio in time for the new season of workshops that start...

It's Sewww This Year Darling!

It's Sewww This Year Darling!

I used to take for granted the fact that I had been sewing for many years, after having acquired my first electric sewing machine at the ripe old age of 7 years. I had been taught by my Mum, who also started at and early age but she then went on to being trained in fashion design and pattern...
