The big countdown

Only 4 more working days to go, yet so much still to be done! but, we're getting there slowly. At the beginning of last week the windows went in (made by Greggs fair hands too), now we've just got the floor to lay, skirtings to go on and the sockets to wire up. Outside there's still lots to do, we're not going to get the deck laid in time, but hey, Rome wasn't built in a day! The photo above is of me contemplating how much still had to be done!
Here's how we left it tonight, the roof is up, the walls are clad and painted and the lights are up too, it's all coming together really nicely. Just need lots of stock to fill it now!!
On the sewing front, I'm disappointed in the lack of stock I've got made, I just didn't appreciate how much organising this would take and also how much painting there was to do!!! Hopefully in the next day or so the sewing machine will be working over time!
On the animal front, over the weekend the ducklings hatched, 8 little bundles of fluff, the cutest little things I've ever seen, and boy do they hit the ground running!!! I'll get some decent photos of them this week, as they grow at a tremendous rate.
So, I'm off to get a bit more sewing done, it would be nice to get to bed on the same day as I got up.........
Will try and post photos of it all before Saturday, wish us luck!

The studio looks really great! I know what you mean about not having enough hours in the day!

Good luck over the next few days on the sewing front!

Wishing you a great opening day on Saturday Lisa... the space looks wonderful. It's easy to say but try not to overdo it... i often find that making sure i have a least one decent night in the run up to a show makes me more productive the next day. You want to be able to enjoy it all and not be on your knees. You can always set up a machine or finish off a few bits by hand over the course of the weekend... folk seem to like seeing works in progress too.
Will be thinking of you.
xx with love

Hi Lisa, I'm devastated that I didn't make it over at the weekend. The flu bug I got has really taken its toll I'm afraid, I still feel quite poorly. I hope it all went well and really look forward to reading all about it in your next post!
