Welcome to my studio! I am shirley Hudson- pattern designer and artist.
My studio is my entire basement...3 large rooms. I have stations for all crafting.
This is Lucky my cat on my old ironing board...he is always lounging around! Click on any picture to see detail better!
This is where I work with papers, tags, painting, and drawing. I love creating here!
These items are all over my desk, because I am always grabbing for them....pens, markers, and my fav...glitter.
I had fun with this 12 dollar cabinet...so much fun to tuck things in.
My thrift store mannequin....it was a lucky find! I like to deck her out with my soldered necklaces, pins, purse, skirt, and apron.
This is my sewing room, which has a big cutting table and sewing area, shelves, and plenty of light.
It is fabulous having all this space.
I have my favorite new fabrics on this rack with some of my designs and favorite things.
I have curtains that cover up my piles of fabric...I don't fold everything perfectly...so I don't want to see it....lol.
This is my new little metal cabinet I got at the thrift store....I put felt on the doors so I could pin my pins to it.
Cute doll and my raggedy be mine pillow.
I love to reuse items....this is a coffee can with old music mod podged on it. Just add badge and it is a great colored pencil holder.
This is a patriotic cat stitchery design I am finishing up...she need borders.
This is my favorite quote!
Lots of little things near my sewing machine.
I have been collecting so much paper...I am always messing about with it.
This is the boring mail center....oh well, not everything can be my favorite.
This is my sewing machine area. I love to sew here.
This bunny I made looks funny with a chenille nose.
Here is another area where I work at all the time, the old computer area.
My daughter has a desk of her own to create with me...we are like two peas in a pod!
This is "boo" my pumpkin man doll...he sits on the computer and makes me smile.
I placed a metal letter file on end to create an area for my stamps and extra glitter.
To let you know more about me...here are some things about me. I am married to a wonderful guy who is my best cheerleader. My daughter is a delight and I love her soooo much. I have been designing for 12 years now...with 143 patterns (quilts, stitcheries, all holiday decor, wool projects...more) and 80 collage sheets. I have been in 50 magazines sharing my designs. I love blogging and I created my own website and love all the places I sell my items. I love to craft altered art with old pictures, solder jewelry, sew, draw, paint, create tags, and the glue gun is the best crafting tool ever. I quilt too, my set up is in my shop outside because I am not moving it...too hard! I love my life, it is like playing everyday.
