........ And suddenly you just know it’s time to start again and trust
The magic of new beginnings.........
So now it is new beginnings and I am so looking forward to blogging again all be it now and again for now. I am excited to be starting my stitching and love of vintage again. Unpacking my beautiful fabrics and threads has been exciting and emotional at times.
One of my greatest sadnesses was leaving and saying goodbye to Miss Muddy Beak! she would not understand my absence and I miss her terribly, however since I have moved in this month a Mr Muddy Beak has joined me in the garden at Thimble and I have hope that I will be able to strike up the same sort of trust with him and he will become tame and talkative as Miss Muds was with me. In the end she would fly onto my hand ..
The tales of Thimble Cottage and The Threads of Time Studio will begin the new chapter in my personal and sewing life and has begun in earnest.
It has been fun choosing paint colours and general decoration. I have a good sized studio and a personal sewing room here and the feelings of happiness and joy at the prospect of getting back to who I am and discovering what I personally love to do have bitten me like a bug.
The cottage has a wonderful feeling about it and is aptly named, I fell in love with it the moment I walked through the garden gate, I cant explain really.
The kitchen had to be moved about to incorporate a range and a Victorian dresser for all my vintage china. Plastering of walls and a door filled in that seemed useless to me has been completed. Paint colours chosen and applied. A new bathroom with a bath on legs all in whites and duck eggs has been fitted by great friends and to say I am thrilled and grateful is a understatement.
Through the post I have received cards, flowers and a beautiful little stitchery of Thimble Cottage from the gorgeous Vintage Dahling and stitched by the lovely and talented Suzi hearts n Kisses. It has taken pride of place in the porch...
I have to wait to unpack the studio as my carpet was cancelled due to the virus, I understand it but its very frustrating when you want to unpack and place beautiful things in the dresser in there.
New friendships have been formed and I have met some amazing people who I wish to thank too.
I have been designing and done a little stitching as well the added happiness is finally taking work shops later in the year and meeting some of you I hope as well when this nasty virus is under control and we are able to get together to stitch, chatter and spend time with one another.
Glad to be back and hope that you will all join me on this new life and chapter in my life, I have missed you very much and the emails I have received asking when I will return have basically made me do this. It has been a hard thing to do.
I will be doing blogs as and when for a while, whilst I get sorted and working in earnest. I found my needles and some gorgeous fabrics that I had forgotten about.
So for now I will sign off and I hope to see you all back here soon.
