executive decision

do you remember this post here?... and here??

Well this building was to have been the home of The Rowan Tree, but it is not much further ahead and certainly not ready to move into - how damn frustrating, 'cos I've been waiting to open up my own little quilt shop...

So now, Rowing Man and I have seen the builder (s!!) - reliable ones that is... and they are set to do some rather large alterations on this...

and this... (back garden view).. yep... that IS snow on the ground, sparse but snow..

and this... (will be shop area)

and this... will be workshop

eventually, so today we got it painted, and the garage all cleared out

can you imagine all the quilts to make for this cosy (or what will be cosy) little cottage (little being the operative word!!).

this will be our bedroom - really funny area, 2 rooms which are 1, in a sense. Rowing Man and I have a thing with Resene 1/4 spanish white - but it is such a versatile colour,and oh the colour that you can then introduce...

oh isn't life such fun!!! Never, ever a dull moment...

Hi Shiree, OK small (like mine) but perfectly formed! Small shops often have quite a cozy feeling and I know some of my regulars really like that, I'm sure yours will too. Keep smiling : ))

How frustrating Shiree! Your new abode looks very cosy, and I'm sure will look spectacular when your stock goes in...can't wait to see some more progress shots!
