Sunday Morning in the Studio


A while back I won a fantastic giveaway at LiPeony's blog and I was able to choose three prints from her lovely Etsy shop LiPeony. The one posted above called "Little Sewing Girl" is my favorite along with "Flipping Pancakes" and "A Marshmallow Incident." Her shop is filled with whimsical imaginative illustrations. They are quirky, fun and just delightful.  You must check them out!

My "Little Sewing Girl" print is displayed in my studio and inspires me to work. This morning I took some shots of the studio before I began sewing. It does get messier as the day progresses. But I will admit I do like things organized and clean so throughout the workday I am picking up bits of thread from the floor and putting things away that I am finished with so it does not get too unmanageable.  

At the moment I am working on two equestrian satchels in Harris Tweed wool.  I took some time off from my studio this past week so I am trying to catch up with my sewing this weekend.  Whatever you choose to do this weekend I hope it will be very enjoyable!

You're good, cleaning as you go! I try to do the same when I'm screen-printing and get annoyed with assistants that don't. Congrats on the winning the giveaway - that print sure is cute. x

That's such a cute print ~ congrats!

I'm the same way in my studio... a bit OCD, but it's the best way to be productive, right?

Yay, for horsey satchels... I'm excited to see them :)

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, my friend!

Yes very good to be neat and tidy as you go. I try to do the same, it just makes the work more pleasant and then you don't have a huge mess later.
The illustration is sweet that you won, I will have to visit the links you provided.
How do you do a giveaway like that? I'm only on blogger, no twitter or facebook. Do you think it would still be possible to do a giveaway...maybe that would give my site more exposure as well?
Hope you have a great weekend and congrats on your win!!
I see that a lot of my creative blogger friends are like me when it comes to a tidy studio! If it gets too cluttered I can not think.

Dia- I'll come over to your blog and leave you a comment about giveaways.

Horsey bags are completed and will be added to the shop today!

Have a great week

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
