How to keep the children amused...


and avoid too many mesages like this...



so i have time to play with my fabrics...



and get sorted in my new workspace... yeah!



worktop extension knocked up by R as the worktop wasn't long enough. He made the top with wood from an old futon base and the legs and frame from all our offcuts...perfect!

a bright little corner where i shall design and sew.


and a place to put our tea and cakes!

Now i am nearly set up , i will be sewing again. First project is to make myself a lightweight sun dress in time for my holiday... hope this glorious weather lasts!

I love the picture of the children dancing around the rotary line. It is like a modern day dance around the maypole!!!

It all looks lovely and very organised. I see you have a lucky "money tree" on the window sill, hope it brings lots of success in your new workspace.

LOVE that top photo! Oh to be young again and dancing throught the pegged out launrdy! :o) Such fun to have some sneak-peeks are you new work studio! Half the fun is getting organized, yes?! Oh, can R. knock me up a table extension too?! ;o) I could use something like that...must see if my hubby can do something similar...hhhmmm...Happy Days playing in your new space! ((HUGS))

Oh it's FAB Ginny! Well done and just enjoy it - all that organising is just the best therapy in times of stress!!! xx

Oh - We used to have a clothesline almost exactly like that! Then a tree fell down in a storm and toppled it. It could not be repaired. We were lucky the tree didn't hit the house. But it was still dsad, as this is my husband's boyhood home and it had been there forever. I still miss it. might sound silly to miss a clothesline, but I do.

The new studio looks fantastic - can't wait to see what you design and make there! x

I've heard of dancing around the Maypole, but never the washing one! I think the message on the piece of scrap is so sweet. The workspace, what a great place. I know you need lots of room for craftwork etc, but I feel you need a larger area for tea and cakes! The summer continues. x
