Here I am, back in the land of technology. All I can say is that it wasn't my fault and it wasn't my service provider's fault - it was that wonderful provider of phone lines that we have here in Australia. Doh!
I visited the Stitches & Craft Show in Sydney yesterday and bought a book I'd had my eye on since I first read about it. It's not new, but it came home with me anyway. I don't know about you, but I LOVE looking at other quilters' sewing areas. Probably because it allows me to picture how they work, but also because I often pick up good ideas for my own studio. Do you think the term 'studio' sounds a bit pretentious? Or should we all accept that 'sewing room' is a bit outdated, bringing to mind images of doing the mending?
Anyway, the book has great photos of work spaces. The one I like the most so far is a converted double garage where the roll-up door has been replaced with French doors and the whole space is used to accommodate a husband and wife who both quilt. Wish I had that much space!
