This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

working wednesday

Now that everyone, (husband included) is back at school, it is time to crack on with the Festival of Quilts piece, especially as I had a phone call from our Regional Co-Ordinater at the weekend to see how I was doing (Hi Jackie!).
So I have started on this section....

......And I have completed this section.

This is now officially my work space!!!
It is so exciting. For those of you that don't know, before Christmas the sheds that stood here burnt to the ground. We were so lucky that the quick actions of our lovely neighbours stopped our whole house going up in flames. The back of the house did sustain some damage but has now been rectified.
I do have a shot of the burnt out wreck but it is so depressing I just don't want to add it to my nice clean blog, so the before and after shots can be of the inside.

I am already in and using the space, but until I have finished putting up shelving etc I am going to keep things under wraps and you will have to come back later to see it in all it's glory.

I still have my view of the sea which you can just make out past the washing line, and looking at this I realise that I must drag myself away from stitching and blogging to prune the fire damage from that bush. To be honest I have only just realised that it has damage now that the green shoots are poking out from underneath.
After trying to work in practically every room in the house I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have this space. I'll end on a big THANK YOU to my husband who has downsized to a smaller shed so that I could have this (although I think I heard cheering as I carried the last of my stuff out!!)


  1. the quilting is amazing on that second section (not that it isn't on the other two photos as well)

    Love your work cottage!

  2. You do such beautiful stitching and how wonderful to have your work space....what a beautiful view.

  3. The flower quilt may be OTT but it works that way. It looks beautiful. And a shed of your own. Lucky, lucky you.

  4. Oh please can I have a lovely big workroom like this (I keep dreaming about it but nothing yet) - enjoy

  5. Can't wait to see the finished workspace - what a great view!


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
