Behind the Scenes

Inspired by this topic du jour in a makers' group online, I paid a lot of attention to the behind-the-scenes nature of the day. There was plenty of it.

I managed to sort out the piles of papers, drawings, and unfinished stitcheries on my table. And just about in the middle of all that, I looked up into the little room next to my work area, saw the morning light, and moved everything into it.

Guess what I have? A creative studio. With doors.

It's not finished. I need an ironing board and a shelf and a lamp. But it already feels a little like my own sweet home-away-from-home-at-home.

And in the process of sorting and moving, I managed to finish my Garden Girls embroidery pattern sample with curly french knot hair for the older girl.

Yes, this is how I photograph stuff these days. Mainly from above and using a sheet of scrapbook paper beneath.

This was just plain fun.

I love this font. It's called Le Petit Parisien and you can get it here at Creative Market. I can't wait to use it in my new Etsy banner when it rolls out the new look next week.


  1. Love the new logo--wonderful(and the girls---the hair esp). And know how great it feels to have found your workspace in the light. Moving is a bite---but it's always exciting to scope out the new place, new gardens, etc. Enjoy!

  2. How wonderful it must be to have your own space! And I love your new embroidery designs, especially the nature ones!! I can't wait to see how the tree bark one comes out! :) Lisa
