Miss Maggie (a kit from the talented Alicia Paulson).
Now a project like this would make complete sense if you had a baby girl's nursery to decorate, or a sweet little girl who knew how to gently play with handmade softies. Of course, in our truck-filled home for wild boys, there is simply no need for a sweetly stitched bunny. Nope, no real need at all. And yet she makes me extremely happy as she sits in my studio, nestled against a stack of quilts and pillows, all stitched by hand in various shades of pink.
(another Posie creation from her book, Stitched in Time)
new studio space (a full tour to come once everything is in its rightful place!). It was only then that I realized I love
McCoy pottery, and although I refuse to admit how much I paid for her (I'll never tell!), she was worth every penny. Sometimes, no matter what the cost, you just have to let your inner kook win!
Heidi of White Studio Loft. I have worked with Heidi on a few shoots now, and I am always amazed at the lightness she captures in her images. After spending some time reviewing the basic principals of photography (you know, all the fun stuff, f-stop, shutter speed, iso, etc.), we headed to Jephry Florist, a gorgeous, light filled flower shop on the West Side of Providence.
my new studio space! One thing I won't be doing anytime soon- knitting Vijay another sweater.
We spent the weekend "helping" around the farm, and by helping, I mean I took pictures, and Vijay played in the mud (March is mud month on the farm- and boy, do we have loads of laundry to prove it!). He did give the sheep plenty of love...Amanda seems to think Vijay is in need of a pet sheep. Hmmm, sheep in Providence, could it be?
