studio progress


I thought that I'd better give you an update on how the new studio is coming along. Mr Tread Softly has been working so hard to get if finished and open by Christmas. However, due to building supply holdups, it's put him back a couple of weeks, so realistically we think that the opening will be at the beginning of January. That sits well with us – starting the new year with a new studio that the public will be able to visit sounds like a great way to start the year.
As you can see, the building has now been weather boarded and the first coat of paint has been applied. The shot above is what I see from my kitchen window – that and the shot below.

I just love those huge recycled windows that he's put in. They bring in so much natural light. Want to see the inside?

We have insulation,a ceiling, walls and a fabulous wood floor that I intend to lime-wash. It's so spacious. The log burner (a mini version of the one in our cottage ) has been ordered and should be with us sometime in January. So, as you can see, it's coming along quite nicely.
What else? Ummm, the sign is being made that will hang from a pole at the edge of our property and postcard publicity has been designed and printed. I'll show you those in another post.
There's always time to potter about the garden though. We're already harvesting leeks, broad beans, radish and lettuce and I've planted up some pots and filled them with Spring and Summer colour. I came across two little drawers at the local second-hand store and I think that they look pretty neat perched on our back step.


I'll be back soon with details of the Thorndon Fair that I'll be selling at on 7th December.
Until next time…
