Where to begin...

It's been a very long time since our last post here on the blog. So much has been going on at The Studio... lots to share with everyone!

The biggest & best news~~we are comfortably ensconced in our new private home-based studio in the heart of Vancouver! It took some time (not to mention fuel and hours spent with online searches) to find space that was suitable for both living quarters and work space.

We have a wonderful amount of natural light coming from a beautiful picture window... I absolutely love the pink canopy of cherry blossoms lining the streets of the city... There would be room to sit in the window when the stitching bug hits, but it is already filled with chachkas & trinkets & family pictures... we most certainly need to add a couple of cozy chairs for tea time!

With the sewing & stitching room ready to go, the set up for the office is underway... not having a proper office for the last 3 months sure took it's toll on the stack of paper work! Catching up is a definite priority before any new projects... even if I'd rather have a needle & floss or a crochet hook keeping my hands busy...

In other news, you can now follow Carla's Victorian Heirlooms on Twitter and we are working on our company page on LinkedIn... and we're in the planning stages for our own web page as well... needless to say it will be a very busy Spring! 

In between all the moving and upheavals, I did finish hand-stitching the "Love Birds" counted cross stitch project... now to find "just the right frame"...
