new doorWe have got the builders in.

Now, I did promise not to moan about them so I shan’t…

but let me tell you I really, really could.

Originally we were going to have the roof space of the garage converted into a studio for me.

But it soon became clear that the room was going to be too small.

So, the roof space is now going to be where the computer and the Hornby trainset live.



And therefore, where the menfolk of the house will be spending the majority of their spare time.

And I’m getting a little portion of the garage itself.

Which as of today, can be reached from the new door in the kitchen (above).

from studio

My studio has got four lovely big skylights and three rather strange beams that hold the roof up (or something similar).

I shall be hanging things off those. No idea what yet, but I feel I must.

As you can see, it’s not going to be a big room, but I am going to love it!

I’m hoping that I can get in there and ‘play’ in about a month.

Can’t wait.

But first I have a lot of storage shopping and daydreaming to do about perfect designer studios… what a chore!

    That’s awesome! Skylights are so cool. That will be perfect having it right off the kitchen

    it’ll be fab when it’s all done, my sewing room is only tiny, just remember, size doesn’t matter, it’s what you sew in there that counts ; )

    Nice to see ‘your room’ taking shape. I am sure it will soon be full of your lovely stitchwork.

    Well as someone who has a brand new studio/sewing room I can tell you its worth waiting for. I can’t believe how much I am loving the great light and space. And you will too, of course, and you know that. I’m excited for you. Its fun getting a new room and tricking it out. It will be grand.
