Back to work..........

The studio is now fully functional again!  Much cooler too with the new insulation and very clean looking now its all painted white.  The new skylights make such a different to lighting levels too.

To ease myself back into sewing again I've started a new project - for me this time for my bed.


And finishing off old projects.....


Some views for you......

  1. Ooh! I'm so jealous. You'll soon be in full swing again. I don't do lots of quilting, but I do love a bit of Crazy Quilting now and then.

    wow it looks fantastic - alot of work - it looks so much bigger - have you extended? - the quilt looks lovely is it a bed cover? - enjoy working in there in the next couple of weeks before the school holidays start! - mind you he seems a chip off the old block with dress designing and drawing!!!!!!!!!

  4. Hi Helen,
    This is looking fabulous now it's all sorted. Love the new work bench with under-shelving. It's great the insulation works both ways for hot and cold... even I'm feeling the heat today way up here!

    p.s. congrats on such a successful workshop in Sterling :D

  5. Hi Helen,
    gosh is that your studio? If it is, you are an unbelieveably lucky lady! It's gorgeous! And love the latest quilt you're working on, very nice colours and patterns you're combining. Your son has grown a bit since I last saw him! He's turned into a nice young man! Doesn't time fly! The garden you aslek about, it's in Cheswick. It's part of the open gardens for charity scheme, they have a website if you want to have a look. We're going to another open garden again today, later on.
    Love Vanessa xxx (do you mind if i knit)
