Inside the artists' studio -it's me!

Last week I was honored to be the second featured artist in a new series on Wash When I met owner Kristina through an Etsy group I belong to. We share a love of sewing and fabric hoarding.

Kristina sent me a list of questions and photo requests for the interview. I had a lot of trouble with the photos as usual. My sewing room is an internal room. It has two doors, one on each end. A third of each wall is glass blocks but still it's quite a dark room and if I am working I need the light on. Any photos taken in the sewing room/"studio"/office inevitably need a lot of editing.

My storage space is a large walk-in wardrobe in my hallway. It's pitch black in there without the light on. I keep everything there to prevent dust spoiling the fabrics and to stop the kids touching them.

Finally, my hair ... I am desperate for a haircut. That's normal for me. It was also really hot that day so I kept having to mop my brow ...

Kristina doesn't have any of this sort of trouble. Her blog is fantastically bright and colorful. I am sure she always looks gorgeous. This is her blog, wash when dirty - handmade by Kristina. She has a massive following on Facebook. She runs two Etsy stores: handmades and fabrics.

Thanks Kristina!
