when things are slow...

It has been a while ago... but sitting again here and writing a blog feels really good. It has always been some kind of reward for me to sit down with these pictures and write about one more finished project... John uses once in a while the phrase: "Now the world is a bit more complete". It can be after any small thing, like vacuuming the floor... But it is not quite that easy when the project is a real big one; like totally completing my shop and studio with every single little thing that's missing... but I am slowly getting there.
The picture below shows the area in front of my shop. You park your car on the other side of the building and walk around the corner following the path with the big windows of the studio on your right hand. The shops´ entrance is covered with tiles. This winter a 30 square meter greenhouse will be built there. It is going to be a part of the shop; I am dreaming of a little area for selling things for garden, and a little place to sit down with a cup of coffee and a muffin... we will see...




But as it is, here is a lot to be done. Trying to finish most of it myself with a little kid around, takes time. Against my own rules I am publishing plans of an unfinished project. I want you to be part of it and share it with me, wondering how it is going to be... ?




Maybe the most important part of the project takes place tomorrow. We are going to visit a day care nanny, hopeful sweet, suitable and willing for taking care of Seth who´s longing to play with other kids and giving me the time to be more productive in my shop and with my shop...

Hi Mette,
I was thinking of you only this morning as I was boiling the kettle for tea. I was wondering what the reason was behind your absence and was hoping that all was well in your life. I was so happy to log on and see your post in my feed reader. And what a lovely reason to be too busy to blog. It all looks beautiful. My world is a little more complete this morning, having caught up with your news. Have a great week and I can't wait to hear more about yur shop.

Mette!
Kul att du är tillbaka!
Kan du maila mig din adress, så ska jag skicka dig ett utklipp om en växthustillbyggnad som jag såg i en inredningstidning. Du vet, Sköna Hem... Åh, dessa förmiddagar som tillbringades i Visby; handla, Gula Huset och biblioteket. Och sen... hem och sova!
Kram!

Thanks for sharing some of your in-process work. I'm sure the shop will be wonderful when it's all done; a lot of blessing to come from hard work.

Glad you came back! I hope it is motivating to see the befores and afters, the plans, colors and shapes that will become what you imagine. It looks like it will be wonderful!
