The Shed/Studio Has a Slab!!!
Finally- the slab is here- now it has to cure. It is almost 3 years since my shed was built ( see my 18 July 2005 post and the kit had actually been purchased one year prior to that) and I have had to wait all that time as it's been one thing after another and a bit of a nightmare altogether if I am perfectly honest- but now it is here. I can set up my work space and unpack all of my studio which has been packed in a tent these last months. If things with the house go well, then I may be teaching summer workshops from it this summer! Textile escapades in Gellibrand! What a great relief that would be!
The little cross stitch piece was a day off exercise- hand dyed silks stitched through lutradur and then mounted onto cotton- just something to do on a Sunday, it measures 8 inches by 8 inches and will be for sale when I finish the last of the stitching. My daughter and I did clear away all the debris from the trees that had to be lopped whilst I was away, where the house will go- it was a big job and it will make a big bon-fire- there will be a few cobwebs from the past thrown into that fire that's for sure!
