I’ve been a very busy bee these past few weeks, sadly not sewing but trying to get our house into order. I have finally taken over the entire ‘studio’, booting the boys (play area) out and moving all my
junk prized possessions in. I am such a happy bunny now that I have most things in one space, there are still some boxes of tweed stuffed under beds to find and absorb into the already full room but it’s nice to have everything in one space and equally lovely to have the rest of the house tidy of storage boxes. We also spent the weekend clearing and organising one of the garden sheds, this was a job well done and has created loads of room to move more things (mainly paint and DIY things) outdoors to help free up even more space. One day I will have a tidy home and ideally a cleaner (we can all dream 😉 ).
I’ve taken lots of photos that I keep forgetting to show, mostly of pretty buys.
This little beauty arrived from Camila Prada some time ago. She is called ‘Beau’ and I blame Fiona for introducing me to these amazing ceramics. I can see I am going to have to really curb my enthusiasm here and try to keep my purse mostly closed. My bank balance will thank me if I do.
When I took the above photos, I realised I’ve never shown you this beautiful Hydrangea bracelet by Michael Michaud. I bought it at the Hampton Court Flower Show and now have so many lovely pieces of his work on my wish list.
I have found some time for sewing in amongst the tidying, I’m hoping that these little deers will be finished soon, so I can have them listed in the shop before Christmas – because, hey, I somehow managed to miss my Halloween deadline, and the Autumn one (but feel quite relieved to have things ready and stored away for next year!). As always, I’m way behind in blog reading and replying to comments, but that’s a given these days, I think I need to add a magic time stopper to my wish list so I can sit down and catch up!
Back soon with actual finished work to show you…hopefully.
