Introducing my assistant,Mr.Fishy!
Always available to sit right in the middle of whatever I'm working on, especially if it's white and he has wet feet.He's not to clever on the machine though, tries to eat the bobbins as they wind!
I was too slow with the camera to get a snap of him asleep, while hanging off the edge of the ironing board so this one will have to suffice. Please excuse the poor quality, the light has not been kind this week ( that and I need more practise!)
This is showing you a sneaky peak of my studio, yes I know it looks like a kitchen, and even though i say STU-DI-O alot every one insists on referring to it as a kitchen, but it's my studio, honest!
Like the green cupboards in the background? I don't, they were here when we moved in and the theory was "oh yeah, we'll be replacing those!", 6 and a half years later and they're still here, but at least the orange and green checkerboard effect tiles are gone, as are the stencilled orange trees in a big pot, three of them would you believe at a jaunty angle on the wall( artex wall by the way! ) like the 80's version of flying ducks (only far less attractive!)
One day I'm going to have a bonfire of those kitchen cupboards, I mean STUDIO cupboards. You're all invited. We'll make a day of it. Bring your own matches...
Note to self: At least pretend you have domestic skills and tidy up BEFORE taking photos!!
