Suki always likes to be part of the action, so if something is going on in the studio, she likes to be with us.
Here she's keeping Jeanne Simpson company.
She also likes to be in boxes or help hold down the top of Priscilla's sewing supplies case.
Suki's favorite toys are rubber bands, and she will amuse herself for long periods of time by throwing them up in the air and then chasing them. We've tied a few bands together, which makes them a little easier to find after she's scattered them around the studio.
The studio was built by New Energy Works (Timberframers, Housewrights & Joiners) as an addition to the west end of our existing house. The timberframe structure is 23 x 33' and was built using reclaimed douglas fir timbers. The interior cabinetry was made from reclaimed rustic beech, and the countertops
from Australian Jarrah wood. The construction started in April, and we moved into the studio in August 2007.
