The two major projects that's going on with me and bagladee are the studio/loft conversion and writing my 'How to' craft book. I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I was taking Friday and Monday off work to work on my book. So far I've managed to get all the text written, although I think it definitely needs proof reading and tweaked a little, but the main bulk of it is done :) I also found time on Monday to cut out all the fabric pieces which I will need for the photo shoot a week on Friday (exciting!!!) just need to cut out all the interfacing pieces and write a list of all the things I will need to be taking.....sewing machine, equipment etc. And we're nearly there!!! The other half is going with me for support (creatively direct) which eases the nerves a little.
Secondly do remember this collage and how the beams looked in the loft??? Quite dark (which was coal soot), gnarly and well not very pretty at all.
Well Gary the plasterer is due back next week and after all the sanding this weekend gone, they now look like this!!!!
Aren't they pretty!!! Excuse the photo collage I thought this would be the best way of showing them off....what do you think? They are all ready now for a natural matt coat of lacquer and then once dry taped off with newspaper to protect them whilst Gary is plastering the walls. I'm so giddy I could burst....it wont be long now until I can get everything up there and poor Chris can have his room back :/
