Where Blogger's Create~2011


 
Photobucket

Talk about last minute decisions!  I was blog hopping and came across a blog called My Desert Cottage that was having a "Where Blogger's Create" link-up party!  Last year there were over 300 bloggers who participated by showing photos of their studios or creative spaces!  I was in a party mood so I signed up!

But, the post has to be submitted tonight because the party is TOMORROW!  OMG!  No time to tidy up and that's bad because I spent the day out there doing what all of us who have a studio are supposed to be doing in our studios........ creating.

Even though I have a bed in my studio it is usually buried beneath wool and the occasional odd rolling pin.  What's that all about?  So no sneaking in a nap when I'm out there!

Cooler temperatures today prompted me to work on these wool and velvet pumpkin pin cushions. Why does the whole studio end up in chaos for something so small?!.  To be honest I have another rug on the frame,  a few mats hooked and ready to be made into kits for my students. Then today in the mail I received a booklet of new patterns that I ordered from Kelly Belfast at Kank-N-Chester!  Kelly you are a genious!  I am ready to get hookin' some of those charming designs!    Thank-you so much!

If you would like to see more photos of my studio check the Flickr flashing badge over there on the sidebar.  It was half-way clean and organized then!
So go check out some of the other blogger's creative spaces this weekend!  Here's the link:  My Desert Cottage~Where Blogger's Create

  1. Cathy, your studio is alive and well. I just love it just the way it is. Everything is so pleasing to look at and well arranged and also well organized. It show that you use your studio instead of just showcasing it.

    I find you very creative and enjoy visiting your blog.

    I'll check up on the link as soon as I visit other friends' blogs. Thanks for the link. JB

    As I've told you before, I am so envious (in a good way...lol) of your studio. It is so large and filled with good ole sunshine. I think I'd be more creative if I had such a wonderful place to work!!! Thank you for sharing and I hope I find time to visit your Flickr site soon.
    Pug hugs :)

  16. Your space is so awesome! Great pics! I truly believe that our spaces are a reflection of ourselves and yours seems to follow the rule - at least for your blog personality. I totally understand the comment about the smallest projects making the biggest messes. But the bigger ones do too.
