My Garden Studio. I feel very fortunate to have this space, I didn't use it very much over the winter, having Otto stopped that. It's better now, he's toilet trained, I can leave him on his own for short periods, and if he does join me in the studio he's starting to learn not to chew everything! Think we are some way off sewing in close proximity to him though, he'd have a field day with my sewing machine ;) I'm starting to use this space more and more again now.
So my crafty space:
1. Blue Rocking Chair. It does look nice, but has to be the most uncomfortable thing I've ever sat in, soon to be put on eBay!
2. Vintage Wallpaper. Picked up from various car boot, charity shops, but mainly eBay. I love this type of wallpaper, it's funky colours and patterns, all from the 1970s.
3. Tall Locker Bookcases. I got these from a 8A King Street, Southwell, Nottinghamshire. They pick up some really nice bits and bobs from vintage fairs, always worth a look. These are perfect for books, magazines, and fabric.
4. Wire Desk Shelves. These were from Ruby Rockcake. Brilliant, hold loads of stuff, mainly fabric and yarn. I've got a bit of a thing for 1970s bed sheets, I just love the colours and happy designs.
5. Desk. IKEA, cheap, functional, perfect size for crafting.
6. Vintage Machinst Chair. Another eBay bargain, needs renovating but at the moment it's covered with a blanket I made.
7. Suitcases. I picked these up from a car boot I think, only a pound or two. I've glued wallpaper on them...must have a look at what's inside!
8. Vintage Basket. Gifted from a friend.
9. Quilts. Made by me, probably unfinished ;)
10. Garland. Made for me by Clare at Selfsewn. Beautiful Liberty fabric hexies, love this.
11. Studio Sign. Made by another lovely friend.
Yes, I feel very blessed to have this space. I really appreciate that I have somewhere to stash all my stuff, somewhere to relax, and forget any stresses. It still feels like I'm on holiday when I'm sat down there.
Have a great Wednesday folks.
Amanda :) xxx
