Oh the light...

Well hello long neglected blog...I cannot believe it's been a week already since I stopped in here. Let me tell you, I am having separation anxiety and am beyond glad that my Internet should be installed by this coming Tuesday....roll on. roll on.

I have been back in the studio in earnest this week, and also enjoying settling in to the new place more - also just loving the beautiful light and weather...daylight saving time is a wonderful thing and the light nights are a real treat! This Spring light flooding in through my old paneled window panes is just divine...makes me just want to sit and bask ;)

I had to turn my attention to my night-time lighting solutions as well however...luckily, Habitat is always on hand for such occasions and I splurged on Spindle with stone/cream base and fennel {chartreuse, really} shade. It makes the evenings as good as the days, let me tell you.

So - back in the workshop and doing various chore-like tasks such as sorting through my scrap tin and stocktaking as well as more fun things like finishing up orders. All the tulips went out this past week...thank you kindly for all your orders so far!!...and I am set for a busy week ahead too.

I have been meaning to share this link for a while - Artist Rachel Duckhouse {whose work I saw perhaps a year or so ago at the Glasgow Print Studio} has recently launched her new site - the work is simply stunning in person, so if you ever get a chance to see it up close...make sure you do! Congrats to Rachel :)

Have a good weekend all - wish me luck for smooth broadband install, and that come Tuesday, the Internet and I are well and truly re-united {and it feels so gooooood! ;)}...
