A long process

We all crave that quiet, well organised place to work or create in and if you have followed this blog, you will know that my work space has been out the back of the house in dark and dusty rooms that are cold in the winter, hot in the summer and frequently invaded by unwanted guests.
Well after a lot of persuading we have decided that a spare bedroom is completely unnecessary and I can have a room in the house, the fact that Steve is in need of more work space had no bearing on the decision I'm sure!
You may also be aware that we are in the process of the longest renovation ever undertaken by man, or women for that matter, but today, at last I feel like we are moving forward again.  We have had a junk room for more years than I care to remember,  it is like a black hole in the middle of the house. The door is always firmly shut and very few people have seen behind it. This afternoon, it's walls and floor were finally laid bare, not a bit of junk remained, it is a blank canvas, ready for transformation into ........ No...... Not. My work room, but our bedroom. This is going to be a very long process!

So in many months from now, hopefully this will be a smart new bedroom THEN the work can begin on my work room.  It is the only room in the house that needs completely gutting as it still has the old horsehair plaster walls and ceiling.
But it is a nice big room with a double window to let in lots of natural light, it will be fitted with good working lights and a ceiling fan, plenty of power points and won't be down the back, away from phones, running water and other necessities.

I has been been a very long time since I have posted to this blog and I'm not sure anyone visits anymore, but I will be posting weekly (she says optimistically) photos of the progress towards getting my ultimate work space.  If nothing else this will be a great way to track our very slow progress. 

I had three things to do on my list today, luckily the other two involve sitting in front of the telly with either needles or a hook in hand and this colourful array of yarn, not finding storage for stuff that just can't be thrown or dust!
