Spring in the studio, and garden

We're had lovely spring weather and it is nice to able to open the window for some fresh air while working in the studio.

The little garden patch outside the window is looking pretty with lavender and soon to bloom cornflowers.

I've completed binding some journals this week and they are resting in my press. I will be listing them soon.

The Children's Bookbinding Workshop was indeed a joyful experience with three little ones making books. All dressed in pink and amazing with their designs for the book covers, and the inside pages as well. What a delight to watch these children enjoying bookmaking and paying attention to details.

The Adult Bookmaking Workshop was attended by only one person, so she had my full attention with all the tricks and tips and managed to make a beautiful book with peacock as the book cover.

Meanwhile in the garden...

I love the beautiful scent of the lavender.

The first cornflower.

and an explosion of bright orange... i have forgotten its name.

Re-potted the succulents. Gene made a new planter box for me and this will sit just outside the shed to get full sun. I've had a good gardening day and now I must rest.

Have a lovely weekend!


  1. A nice post and lovely pictures. Shame that only one person attended the Workshop.
    The garden is looking good, and your bright orange flower is a gazania.
    Thanks, and you too. xx

    1. Gazania, yes. they are such pretty flowers! Thank you.
