Notes from the Studio

I’ve been busy in my temporary studio space for the few weeks. Renovations on my home studio are well underway, the fireplace has gone and new pale flooring has been fitted. Over the next couple of weeks, the wallpaper will be gone and I can start putting everything into the space, I can’t wait!

We’ve been continuing to explore our new surroundings and we went for an impromptu walk a couple of weeks ago after wondering what was down a road we pass regularly. We found ourselves in the woods by Falling Foss and the trees are inspiring a new set of Stitchscapes.

Stitchscapes started as something I could work on once in a while, an easy to pick up and put down project but they have become a popular workshop and great stash buster. I find them really relaxing and enjoyable to make and it’s great to be working on some inspired by my new surroundings.

I’ve also been working on some new workshop samples for Zoom and in person classes later in the year. I’ve stocked up on lots of materials for kits to send to people and for my own work. It was great to go to my local fabric shop when it reopened and actually colour match fabric and thread, I’ve missed that so much.
