Life is Beautiful...

I started this last year... maybe a bit earlier??
 and pulled it out last week in my efforts to finish off a WISP... you know how that works!
 Helen released this way back, and I offered it as a BOM last year, really popular particularly in the yummylicious French General fabrics as Helen has done..
 so all my inspirational stitcheries are done,
 and placed 'n' sorted on this gorgeous if subdued Evening Mist fabric range from Sentimental Studios for Moda (been moved about a bit since taking this photo tho')
 soooo... I am really rocking into this and keen to get this top pieced, and another WISP ticked off the list, and onto a bed, or wall, or ... somewhere (very likely stored at my Mum's until we move into our new home!)
so true huh!
Enjoy what is left of your week,

where I create..

Hello and Welcome everyone to my space!
                    My name is Shiree
and I live in the centre of the South Island of New Zealand, in a teeny tiny town called Twizel, at the base of the majestic Mt Cook.
This year I have decided to join in Karen's 4th annual event party sharing our work spaces and studios from around the world. I am hoping that next year if I participate again, I will see a dramatic change in my work space, we are building a new house and so I will have a lovely new spot for creating..
so please keep that in mind when you look at these photos....
 a quiet sunny corner
this chair is perfect for hand quilting or stitching
this is what it is all about huh..
now this area is quite messy and only slightly disorganised, (DUH), remember what I said about moving in a few months, so as long as I can work here in the meantime... my long arm usually sits on this frame but it is currently away being serviced,
some threads
and a favourite quilt..
or 2, this is my favourite corner, with one of my most favourite quilts ever, I just love how bright it is...
well, I hope you enjoy your day!
