Studio

Ok, even my Mum has noticed that it's been a long time since the blog was updated, so here's the latest news. During October we had this built at the bottom of our garden.....


my very own felting studio. I have wanted this for so long, and it's absolutely fantastic. I was waiting until it was completely finished before I showed you photos but it's taking me rather a long time to get all my stuff organized, so here are some 'before' snaps and I'll show you some more when it's completed (which realistically will be after Christmas now).


At the moment I'm busy making brooches to display on the International Feltmakers Association stand at the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show, if anyone's going on Saturday, I'll be helping out on the stand during the morning. I'm also going there for the day on Friday with my Mum and Auntie, we've been going together every year since I was a student at Leeds and we always have a great day out. I'm already excited and have been saving my pennies, although clearly from the trouble I've been having getting everything to fit in the new studio I DO NOT need any more craft supplies. My daughter, who is 7, has asked to come this year as well, which made me very happy. I'm going to take her round on Saturday afternoon (I think a whole day would be a bit over whelming). I hope she finds it as inspirational as I do, she does love her arts and crafts.

So jealous that you are going to Harrogate. I loved it last year, but don't feel up to it this year. Maybe next year I'll persuade the OH to take me away for a weekend in Harrogate in November lol.

ooh the studio looks fantastic Beth.
hope you have fun at the K&S, I'm going on the Thursday which I'm very excited about, although it's at least a 2 hour drive now which I'm not excited about it.... xx

I am very jealous of this lovely studio, I can only dream of such a place, I keep looking at our rickety wooden garage hoping it will fall down soon and fairies will build me a beautiful felting room to replace it, sadly not very likely! Wishing you many happy hours of peace and felting in yours!

I'm also so envious of your lovely new studio...enjoy!

Excellent - we are moving into a new studio in December but it isn't our own...we will be paying rent for it. No matter - your own space is a must :)

You can always find some loveliness and squeeze it in at home however small the space I find! My 8 year old wants to come next year - I went to Ally Pally and it was superb.

Well done Mum!!! I'm also looking forward to the day out on Friday.
We expect even greater creativeness now you have your studio.
