New Flooring Printing & Sweets

A new floor is being laid as I type I can hear the builders 'persuading' things into place downstairs.
Which means after Easter the decoration can begin and the all being well I can re open mid April.
I have been organizing the new shop necessities and buying fabric to make new accessories but it takes a little longer than usual with only a small space to work from.

Someone passed this old photograph on to me of my shop in the late 1980's. My shop is the one with the striped awning it was a newsagents / sweet shop and my builder remembers it well.
Everyone had prievously thought that my building was Aurora Wholefoods but it seems that was not the case after all.
I have also joined the Egg Factory which is a creative co working space. I will be screen printing there. Haven't done any printing for a while but it's like riding a bike isn't it !
Once the builders have finished the floor I shall cover my windows so that the rest of the renovations can be finished and then my new interior can be revealed TA DA
Have a lovely Easter break what ever you do.

My Turn For Renovations

Patience has been required since January as I waited for things to dry out. Mainly the cellar to drain etc etc, but finally it's my turn for the builders to arrive and renovations to commence.
My working practise has been tricky for the first few weeks of the year but I am so looking forward to a new clean workroom and of course the shop which is going to look very different as I am not replacing my checkered floor this time.
Sunday was Mothers Day and we all went to the coast to blow the cobwebs away, it was cold but bright just right for a good blast of fresh air.
There's a lot to do but I have many lists made so I am just going to plough my way through them.
I went to buy some new fabrics on Monday including one of my favourites French ticking.
There will be lots of new products available once I re open so I better get cracking !
