This is the project that has been taking up alot of time out in the garden, it actually looks a bit darker than this at the moment, as we finished putting the roof on yesterday, although I can't take much credit for all this work, I'm really just the builders mate!



It will be a store room, office and shared studio space when it's completed.






I actually got the button stitched on last night, now I just need to get it into the post. The pattern itself is Sirdar, the yarn is Rooster baby alpaca and merino. I'm on the sleeves of the largest of these at the moment and then I've got one more to knit.



A while ago Marianne awarded me a rockin girl blogger, along with a fabulous roll call of more than 25 other bloggers, she's a star, of course, and more recently Angie has awarded me a second Rockin' Girl Blogger award, so whilst basking in the glory of such a prestigious award, I must remember to thank all of you for making it possible, there are so many people I would like to give awards to, a part of me doesn't want to start singling people out, so I'm not going to, but then I got to thinking it feels nice when someone gives you an award, so it's not fair for me not to pass this on, but well it is stressing me a bit which is silly, it is only a bit of fun isn't it, so here goes

Kerrie I don't know how she does it all!

I think that's the best compliment I've ever been paid! Not that I'd say it's hugely accurate ;) but still... you have put a HUGE smile on my face! Thankyou!

The studio/office/store is looking fabulous.

That little cardi is so lovely - we have a display one in work and we can't keep the pattern in stock long enough! The Vogue cardi looks lovely and is such a lovely colour. What a studio you're going to have!! Lucky you!

Great building! How long have you been at it? I dream of a backyard studio/music room. Even a yurt would do.

Thanks for the reminder to stop and be thankful.

Your shed... it could be bigger than out bus, y'know... so we're downsizing and your upgrading? ;)
