Over the past few months—ok, past six months or so—I've been slowly fixing up my new studio. A few weeks ago, my boyfriend helped me pain the walls as clean, crisp white. The floors got a fresh coat of grey, and I'm back in business! It feels so good to have a creative sanctuary to work. The ability to focus really helps when I'm figuring out the shapes and construction of new patterns. I'm already back to work sewing like crazy. Stay tuned for a new mini collection/collaboration I just finished with local Portland designer, Heather Noddings!
