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!

Oh I admire your discipline!I too love a neat and tidy studio...sometimes a little hard to maintain thought!
You made me laugh with your comment about lengthy projects, promise I won't ask anymore LOL
Have a great week

Souvenirs from a Road Trip Giveaway!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
