Window Vista

You remember my workroom just after we moved and the wall was put up in the garage? It looked like this…

And to be honest it stayed that messy until last friday when I tackled it…. Today we had the windows put in and it looks great! Jus need walls plastering and something other than concrete on the floor now!

It’s hardly like a garage at all now 🙂

New room!

I had my workroom built in our garage! OH and his dad spent the weekend putting a divider up, it’s still bloody cold and bloody messy, but we are getting somewhere! Got windows going in in the New Year, but the temporary space blanket was a nice thought 🙂

Havoc

I’m getting a new carpet, well floorcovering, in the gallery area….

Unfortunately it means my craft room is full of chairs and looks like this at the minute. *sigh*

Panic Stations!

I’m making a big order up, so I’m quite flustered at the minute, hope to get it all done by Monday…. I have a few items in the box already…

The order is for 36 pairs of knitting needles, 1 ring,  4 bangles, 1 cuff, 3 heart on sleeve fabric cuff bracelets, 1 pair of earrings and 4 pendants, which actually broken down and looking at it in a list like this doesn’t seem too bad, but sanding the bangles takes a while, especially since my grinder has started shorting the power supply again despite getting a new spare part for it on the warranty only a week ago.

So my desk looks like a disaster zone, so please don’t judge me, it’s very productive!

16 more pairs of knitting needles and a pendant to cast, then it’s a weekend of sanding 😦

My new workroom

I start moving on Friday, which is very exciting, and then I can start work on setting up Rothley Contemporary Crafts. I was toying with the name “Rothley Atelier” but the OH said it wasn’t obvious what the company was all about, so I kept is simple.

I can’t wait to have a bigger space, at the moment my supplies have spilled out of my craft room, onto the landing and take up a third of the living room in boxes and bags now, and I feel like such a tramp- I can’t wait til I have a place for everything (and have everything in it’s plac e as the saying goes).

So as I can’t start laying protective flooring or anything yet, I thought I would share a couple of items I have bought or plan to buy to fit my raspberry and pistachio theme- handmade of course! I was going to start buying furniture today, but since my card was cloned in the cash machine (boo!) I can’t physically buy anything yet 😦
