Construction....Yeah!!!!

   Well, I know my posts are few and far between now....lots of construction going on in my house right now. I came back from Paris...to my new studio being worked on!!! Yeah!!! It was a tinker shop that runs down the side of my house. The previous owners had it as a wood working shop. We...are converting it into an art studio:):)

                                                ....here is what it looked like a week ago....
 ....and as of last night...it has an A/C unit....electricity for sewing machines, irons, and anything else I might need to do...and walls :):)   Did you notice the garage door is now gone!!! A french door was put in its place.....YES!!!
Do you see the new door on the right? That goes into my kitchen in the house:) The Drywall guys are here again this morning to finish the job. The tile goes in tomorrow...by later next week I can move in!!! Yeah!!

Any way.....not much art is getting done..cause I can't leave the house...and all my stuff is at the art condo:):) By December I will be able to bring ALL my supplies and art things under one roof again!!!! YES!!! I'm ready for my quilting/fabric/sewing side to be in the same place as my paint/papers/mixedmedia side. I just want to be able to sit down and art...no matter what mood I'm in:):)

Hope every one is having a great week:):)
Much love- Sandie
