Thought you might like to take a peek into our "summer studio"...
When the kids and I aren't at the beach or in the woods this summer, our work and play will befall under the arms of our enormous 100 year old basswood tree. Today, our studio includes::
A little reading, a lot of music, a small fort, and a lucrative lemonade stand.
I also brought out my treasured spinning wheel, built by my Grandpa Wagner a few years ago, when on a whim I decided I'd like to try making my own yarn~ Like my knitting, he doesn't use patterns for his woodworking. Instead he spent an afternoon at a local historical center, studying their wheels and proceeded to build mine from a fallen cherry tree off of my uncle's land in Michigan. Every piece is hand crafted including the pins and axel~
I bought this fleece from the Shepherd's Harvest last year, minutes after watching it being shorn! I have a lot of learning to do, but I do believe these hanks turned out lovely~
~I hope your studio space surrounds you with love and inspiration~
If you're so inclined, post a link of your favorite place to work.
