Workroom makeover update!

Well, it’s been a long time coming, but I have done some more work on my workroom makeover.  There was a bit of a prompt for this.  For the last 2 months, we’ve had this in our garage.

These have been busy keeping our garage warm over winter.

When they first arrived, it felt like my birthday (in fact, it was a few days after my birthday, but the prospect of a toasty warm house this winter certainly felt like a birthday present).  I had visions of spending my winter like this: Continue reading Workroom makeover update!

I knew progress was going to slow somewhat on the makeover last week, because I had a full week of work (as in seven days).  I’m working from home today, admin for the shop and my contracting work, and sewing.  Well, I will be sewing as soon as I can… So far I’ve managed to unearth the cutting table, which had everything that needed to be kept flat (maps, patterns, etc) piled up on it.  Next step is the ironing station!

Being able to sew again is rather urgent, as I’ve signed up to do Newtown Fair this coming Sunday with Melina Martin and her friend Amanda from TigerBlossom.  Guess how much stock I have on hand. Go on, guess.

 

Yep, none.

 

Eek.

 

I’m also hoping I’ve finally managed to tweak my settings back so people can comment again.  People.  Not spammers.
