A Peek at My Studio

I love seeing design studios featured on craft and design blogs. It is always lovely to have a sneaky peek at how other designers have set up their work space, have stored all their materials and have surrounded themselves with inspiration. I took some photographs of my work space today to send off to be featured in a 'craft zine' later in the year so I thought I would also share them with you.

I love my little studio! It is where I can escape to and be creative. I am surrounded there by everything that inspires me and everything that is precious to me.

I have a creative Mother and both my Grandmothers were skilled at sewing and knitting too; there are many bits and pieces in my studio that I have inherited from them. These precious items range from fabrics in my stash and yarns on old wooden cotton reels to my Grandmother's little sewing table which was made for her by my Grandfather. When I use these items it reminds me of them and makes me hope that they would be proud of my work and how my little craft business is growing. My large pinboard by my desk was made for me by my Dad and is covered in postcards, fabric swatches, magazine cuttings and trinkets that inspire me. It is always a great starting point for new product ideas.

Admittedly I had just tidied up! It can get very messy in there but I have promised myself I will keep it tidier from now on!
