The studio got a dry run today, and the Friday ladies came to visit (Mary had a class going on at the shop, so it was decided to use my new studio as an alternative. It all worked quite well, with nine of us sewing, stitching and knitting away quite happily.
The Owlery was christened with some bubbly (never fear, there will be a 'proper' christening to follow), and Edwina brought some yummy chocolate cake along. We also had chocolate, and I got a plant from Malva for the studio, and Gabbie gave me some gorgeous fabric, which was very kind.
I suggested that whoever wants to sew, quilt, paint or craft on a Tuesday afternoon can come between 1:30pm and 3:30pm. It's so much more fun doing things with others, although I think I'll also be quite happy doing arty things on my own here.
The name of the Owlery is, of course, from Harry Potter, It's where the Owls gather to bring messages from and to Hogwarths. I'm sure owls will begin to appear here soon.
Visit me sometime to see what's happening.
