A Wonderful Day With Lisa Stickley...

On Sunday I went to the fabulous Lisa Stickley's 'Doodling On Cloth' workshop at the hallowed studio of Hope And Elvis.
I love Lisa's work and I was so excited to meet her!
We began the day with a talk by Lisa about her career so far, which was so inspiring.
Then we saw some of her beautiful and quirky designs, and she generously shared a wealth of techniques with us.
Isn't her work just gorgeous!
Then we got to play with the beautiful materials that were in the studio.
We soon got stuck in!
Look at the state of my desk!
And, as always, it's so good to catch up with mates!
And I can't resist a pootle around Louise's stunning studio space...
Tunnocks time!
Here's Lisa enjoying a cuppa too!
I have mentioned this in the past, but Louise does have the most beautiful loo in the whole of the land, and I have photographed it many times!
Obligatory cheeky loo selfie!
And here's a new addition to the smallest room in the studio, a beautiful driftwood crab by Kirsty Elsinore.
The dinner was delicious, Magie is such a talented cook.
And after a day of laughting and chatting and cutting and snipping, one of my rabbit girls emerged...
She seems to be appearing a lot nowadays, I think she wanted to join in the party too!

  4. Think I'd have spent most of my time looking around the studio instead of working, what with so much interesting stuff to look at... and fantastic food. x
