Welcome to my studio! We built the barn several years ago – meaning with our hands, we built it. Meaning my Dad patiently taught, guided, and worked like a dog to help us build it. Thank you Dad. Oh and thank you for taking a deep breath and reframing the wall to put in those 3 little windows for me – I always look out them and smile!
As is always the case with big projects – we ran out of money, my upstairs studio lay in wait. A year ago it finally got good stuff like lights, heat, walls. A year ago it became my home away from home, my sanctuary. I still feel like I am moving in – getting things figured out, finding a groove. Slowly I am beginning to fill it with little bits that make me happy. Slowly it is beginning to feel like me.
I wont lie, it is always a mess. In all honesty, love it that way. I love to be able to have 5 projects laying about without having to CLEAN up. I feel so happy to be able to have a space to lay out yards of fabric and ponder. I would like to fill it friends – get all crafty and laughy and sew up bits of fancy. Feel free to visit and solder a bit of silver, add some snaps to a special project, take a whirl on the serger or just have a bit of tea and cozy up on Grandma Olive’s old sofa. I promise I will clean up a bit, come visit, oh please do.
Welcome to the studio – this is where the stuff is made.
