Where once there was sewing.....
What you can't see is all the dust hanging in the air from when they took the ceiling down. We live next to a railway, and it looked as though there were a lot of steam train smuts from the pre-electric era that had gathered under that slate roof and above the ceiling. Black dust everywhere, despite the best efforts of the builders to contain it!
So far, just the cosmetic work has been started, and scaffolding put up outside.
Soon they will be taking down the left hand wall and building a 'floating' extension.
I've retreated to my 'cave' - our bedroom which is now home to my sewing machine, PC and our 'important' paperwork!
We both like coming across labyrinths in the underground stations. Just the sort of thing to help calm the mind, either from the concern about the builders starting or the excitement of a first trip to Oxford Street shops!
I did manage to get the Heart It quilt basted last week, before the dust descended. As it's 60" square I'm working up to the idea of quilting it in my temporarily reduced space by quilting another project instead - I hope to have a photo or two to show you next week!
Hope that you are enjoying some early summer crafting!
