Where Bloggers Create Event 2013 and Giveaway


♥♥♥ "Where Bloggers Create" Event of 2013 ♥♥♥
and
♥♥♥♥ Giveaway ♥♥♥♥
for my new and existing Followers




To all who follow - This is my Giveaway


(see details for entering at the end of this post!).

I'd like to welcome you all to my studio for the
"Where Bloggers Create" party hosted by
our wonderful Karen Valentine
of My Desert Cottage blog.


This is only my second year of participating and I do hope
you enjoy visiting and viewing some of my creations.

For those of you who are new, my name is Suzy Quaife,
living on the far south coast of Australia on a small
farmlet where we aim to live a simple eco lifestyle
and
 although I'm probably classified as a Mixed Media/Fibre Artist
my most favourite mediums to create with are in fabrics (mainly
vintage and exotic with laces and doilies) fibres 
(inc. raw silk, mohair, soysilk, felt, yarns)
as well as paper. 

Fabric Journals, collages, cards, purses etc. are just a few
of the projects I create. As an introduction to my world I'd thought
I'd share some images of my creations so that you
might gain some insight into why I collect and
create with what I use.





A stack of my fabric journals!






giving you the idea of how I use the materials I collect.


Some fabric journal and lacebook
examples




and


and



a very recent fabric journal "Catching Innocence"
(one which I will share the pages very soon)
and




a couple of examples of a typical collage
incorporating a large selection of vintage fabrics,
doilies, lace and jewelery.





As you travel through my studio you will also see
some wonderful creativity from other bloggers
from all parts of the world - this world of blogging is
such an amazing community of friendship, support
and inspiration!
such as these soldered pendants which I so
treasure from Marie (Lost Bird Studio)







 My studio represents my sanctuary, my place
of peace, tranquility
of familiarity, security and inspiration where
I can feed my heart and soul as
I tune into the birdsong going on especially in the early hours
and
this is the reason whyI gather around me all the things
which inspire and replenish me
so that I may share the fruits of my art with others.



I also see my space as a place to store all the necessary materials
that I work with so there is lots!!! - both materials and storage!!!
Everywhere you look! Shelving, boxes,  jars, chests, baskets
and drawers.
(This is certainly not an occupation for a Minimalist!!!).



Having a background in crazy quilting which I really love
I have been a collector of all sorts of fabrics which goes back
a very long time!

Speaking of quilting thought I'd share a lace and doily
quilt created some time back - the idea of which
seems to have appealed to a number of readers!




 and there have been many other quilts created in this studio
along the way too!





Now back to viewing the studio:


The centre for computer action and blogging!



and above a few special vintage purses!




Some how I am surrounded by some other pieces I love to create -




♥♥  HEARTS  ♥♥








and here is another great passion of mine!




Roses! Even in Winter here in Australia I can still manage
to collect a few of these beautiful specimens!








In my quest for gathering vintage linen and fabrics
I now have a little collection of vintage and antique clothing
hanging from coat hangers around my room
and
of course my old dressform





is also becoming a place to store and display some rare pieces
as well as my "heart strings" of jewelery and silk ribbons
and vintage milinery items.




Tucked away in the corner is this old Welsh dresser
(still in its original form minus sliding leadlight doors)
which I use to store some of my linen and lace
tablecloths, special laces, keys, religious items,
feathers, books, buttons and other bits
and pieces.




I don't think I mentioned that I just love to collect
handstitched tapestries so I have a few of
these also - some of which have been gifted by bloggers such
as this one!


from dear Liz (Lululizinlalaland)
(Don't forget to checkout her incredible Craftavan
along your travels!).












Small collections of vintage buttons, feathers and pods

from our garden and feathered friends!













Shelves are filled with fabrics 






 Tapestry bags, tassels, jewelry hanging ready to use












 All number of laces and doilies in their appropriate boxes






little collections of bottles used in the past 














Creations and gifts







from friends near and far!
like this beautiful hand created doll by dearest Dorthe.

And over to the opposite side of this space
you can see even more shelving


This is where I create at my large table
having all of my bits and pieces
close at hand.


like these cabinet cards, letters and some ephemera



some lace motifs, dyed roses


a collection of sari ribbons,


different shades of crushed velvet
and


This altered cutlery box holds vintage jewelery bits,
chains, medals etc.
as well as a few special little treasures!



 More lace, small pads of muslin







and there are always those special pieces of antique lace

and collars which I could never cut into but they help

to inspire so they are always around!







(I'm linking this image of antique laces to
"Our Beautiful World" blog - a wonderful new blog
which centres on a new theme each week -go check it out
to see this week's theme - LACE).























These shelves also hold a small collection of hat boxes,
 suit cases,timber and vintage cane baskets
 and boxes.








The view from where I sit and sew watching birds build nests
 at my sewing machine

to create items such as these!
(It's Winter time here where I live so there is little flowering!).

  17. To you, dear soul: Your place of creativity is pure heaven - and I'm sure you know that. I can almost feel the softness of the laces and fabrics just by looking at these pictures. Ever since I "met you" through our sweet Vicki Boster, I've been visiting you and admiring your beautiful creations. I know I don't always leave a comment, but trust me ... there are nothing but good words and comments coming out of my mind and heart. I would absolutely positively LOVE to be one of the winners of anything you create because it's THAT FABULOUS. I don't have a blog (yet) but I will be passing your wonders on to my sister ... perhaps she'll post on her blog. Keep creating wonderful art!

  21. Thank you Suzi for inviting us into your studio again. I visit so many times during the year, if feels like my studio away from home. (lol!!) You always inspire! I love the view you have, looking out into nature. It makes such a nice juxtaposition from all the laces and fabrics... all so organic and luscious.

    I'll be back MANY TIMES again this year. I'm very interested in your quilt of doilies and laces! Thought I'd seen everything in your blog history. When/where is this posted? I'd love to see more of it.

    Enjoy the blog hop and know what a sweet inspiration you are to all of us.

    Sweet blessings, and many xoxo

  29. Hello Suzy!! Wow, how do you do it? I mean, where would I start...first I would dive head first into the vats of gorgeous laces and lovelies and run my hands through the piles of textures, oooohing and aaahhhing over their beauty! Your photos are dreamy and that room is soooo inspiring!! Oh and that over the top drop dead gorgeous quilt covered with doilies and goodies. This room must be what the portals of heaven looks like!!! The collage piles of books you've created and the lovely lacy goodness just makes me want to jump into my own stash and get busy creating pretties!
    Thank you so much for such an inspirational tour. I will be back many times I'm sure when I need a boost!

  32. Oh Suzy I have just read your post and looked at each and every image and soaked it all in. I really do not know where to begin, your studio looks such an inspirational place to create your wonderful work. It is so organised and must be lovely to have all your treasures to hand when you create. I love all of your work, and each and every piece is unique. The lace - well, I am in lace heaven, I absolutely love looking at other people's collections of lace and yours is extra special. you have inspired me to sort my storage room out, I do not have a studio but keep all of my lace, fabrics, etc in our little box room. I need to get everything out and paint the room then organise. you have given me some great storage ideas. You have a fantastic view out into your garden. Thanks for sharing your studio, I really enjoyed it. Jaynex

    Your studio and your creations inspire me.

  44. Hi Suzy:

    It took a couple of tries but I was able to put your blog giveaway photo and link in my sidebar. I know you will have some new followers. Of course, I want to win one or both of your prizes. I especially LOVE the cuff you created for this giveaway. Your work is always excellent and inspiring.

    So please put me down for both giveaways and maybe I'll get lucky.

    I am also doing the WHERE BLOGGERS CREATE party this year. However, my post is a more simple group of photos and words. I almost forgot that I needed to create a post for today. I got it done this morning. I knew that if people were checking blogs in alphabetical order, I would come later in the list. Since I'm one of your followers on BlogLovin, I got to your studio tour fast.

    Great work as always.

  96. Dear Suzy
    Surely that is not one year ago when I first stepped into your studio? The time just whizzes past but here is the beauty, time stops as I absorb the beauty within your studio. The little displays of love, the frothy lace, rich textiles that evoke another time and another place. A gentle place to take the time to explore the exquisite art you create and the beauty of the gifts you receive.
    If this were not a gift in itself you present this astonishing piece of art in your Giveaway. I am truely lucky to be able to look around me and view your art and being a wee bit cheeky, I would still like to have my name added to the vintage hat (!) to be part of your Giveaway.
    This visit came when I needed it, thank you dear Suzy.
    Wishes
