Workshop nearly there...

What a job Ive had!!!
This is when it was actually looking a bit tidier, so you can imagine...
Mr Fairysteps and myself made a thousand trips with rolls of leather and boxes of bits... 
I havent finished yet... 
But I have so much work that needs doing I have had to leave it at this stage... 
Useable... but no where near finished... I only managed to clear about one quarter of the shelves that span one wall. I will get to them all though at some stage and then I can fill them with more stock...
Having a 9 foot long table for cutting is going to be a treat indeed! 
Reggie has moved to the sunshine so sewing through the summer is going to be a treat... 
Spring sunshine flooded through the french doors and reminded me why I need to try this room again. I briefly moved in here 2 years ago, but only made a half hearted attempt at moving in. I found it very difficult having leather in one place, tools in another and so I retreated back to my attic...
So actually moving all the little bits will make all the difference... 
I can snatch borrowed moments now... 
Plus I love the colour I painted these shelves! 
Good to have my tools around me... 
Heres my view now... 
The evening sun is stunning in here and it highlights the fact that I have far too much leather in stock!  
I think I will tackle a shelf a week inbetween batches of shoes. My stock is dwindling though so I do need to concentrate on making for a while! Ive kept my old workshop as a special room for glueing and soling and extra storage, but all of my making, cutting, packing orders, designing and admin work will all take place here. And when the sun calls very loudly I shall escape outside to my garden with a tray of tea!
Bliss...

Hope everyones week is going well!
