My goodness I had no idea! A whole month since I have posted something crafty. It's been a whirlwind around here to say the least... there was my cousin's wedding on Nantucket::the quaint but not so little Victorian Home Tour in early June, nearly 300 people came through our house!::while the house was clean we figured we'd have an end of the school year party for Emily's friends and their families::a really great and much needed gathering with family (thanks Donna)::job changes for Adam::finishing details on the frequently mentioned but still mysterious project (will be revealed THURSDAY morning!)::setting up a new studio::and now, settling (very easily) into the rhythm of summer, this is more my speed...
Did someone say a new studio? It's a little sparse and not completely personalized yet, add to that a camera that does not like to take wide angle shots of tight spaces, but still, would you like to take a look around. Notice Emily's first embroidery project, age 4, hanging on the shelves in the first pic. And Sukha, who is always available for sewing support!
Oh yes, I am so excited to call this space my own! I made sure to provide plenty of seating for guests too. It's the same not too fancy set up I've always had really, just no longer in the basement, which I am very grateful for. My family has given me a whole room, thank you for being ridiculously supportive, as always. This space has the best light, it's right next to Emily's room, and the breeze... dreamy.
So, I've begun making a few things again, and it's given me such joy to have my hands busy in this way. It's funny, as I look at these photos it is very evident where my heart has been lately. Brings a little smile.
Hope you are all enjoying summer, whether you are swimming, playing, gardening, or lazily embroidering beneath the magnolia tree.
