The Bolt Hole- photos

You wanted to see the Bolt Hole?

In its untidy present state...



...with Eldest (as usual) holed up in a corner with a book! (She thinks the yellow tape on the floor makes it look like a badminton court!)

The blue unit in the lowest photo is an old shop counter they said I could use- kinda cool I think, and of course the perfect height for working! There is still a load of stuff belonging to the workshop which is due to be removed at some stage, but we pushed it all against one wall so its out of the way. When it is removed I'll set up the full length of the quilt frame along there.

I got two bookshelves from Homebase for storing boxes and books (leaning against the wall by Eldest), but was bored with all the palaver of moving and decided to sew instead! Anyhow I received a commission for two baby quilts yesterday so...well, it pays to sew!!

Anyhoo I spent a lovely day there today, sewing, nipping up to the Shop and Office to talk to people, going out for a coffee with Eldest after she'd been out taking photos, friend stopping by...you step out the gate and you're in the center of town.

All very exciting, huh?!

You don't mind if I live vicariously you through you, do you? I've already chosen the paint colors for the walls.

Wow what a space, I've still got 8 days at school, but then I can sew, sew, sew (in between holidays at least!). At least you can arrange it slowly, and sew when you get fed up with arranging :-)

Looks like you have found a wonderful spot to create. The best part is being able to leave it out all the time, not to mention all that lovely space!

What exciting news for you and your family that you have this new studio space. You are very fortunate! I am envious of the nice large room. It looks like it has tall ceilings and I noticed the skylight too. I hope to hear more about it and can't wait to see the progress on the 2 baby quilt orders.
