The last shelf...

Thursday, 19 May 2011
A corner of the Studio, cleaned and ready to be shelved... 
And here a week later are the finished shelves on this Sunday past... Mr Fairysteps informs me that these are 'the last' shelves in my Studio because he has run out wall space. That seems fair enough doesnt it! I mean even me, a bear of little brain can see that there is OBVIOUSLY no more space for shelves in here...
Or is there?
We could build across the doorways.... 
Sunday was spent sorting and stroking leather (yes, its scary, but I do do this on a regular basis... I love them) and finally stacking in colour relevant leather hills... 
Mr F dragged this pile out from the end of the work table for me. There was a rumour put about the house that a mouse was sighted in my workroom... I think this may have been mentioned in fun to frighten a poor helpless Mother. I wasnt going to risk it though so was glad of the help!!! 
And so dear readers, all of the essesnce of my craft was removed from under and behind the work table and re homed on the new, last, ever, shelves... 
I can move in here now, its quite a nice novelty!

Last words:
Ploughing on with shoe orders including these stock ones which are going well! Lots of bags in the pipeline which Im chuffed about. The website and blog have had a makeover and I am hoppy up and downy pleased as punch with the new Fairysteps website and shop. I recently moved from Pappashop my old host to Big Cartel and can highly recommend them. Apart from the limiting shipping options (which they say they are working on...) its ultra slick and really geared towards 'Makers' of all kinds. I love it! I shall keep my Etsy shop going too, mainly for the smaller accessories and of course my in stock shoes. Treasury makers like them too much for me to stop listing on there!!! On I plod...

Back to work...

  1. Your studio looks fab and I'm drooling over the shelves of leather. I stroke all kinds of things from fabric to wool and leather too (I love sniffing it as well!). I'm drawn to the thought of clear floor space and hope one day to have some :D

  2. You know, that stroking thing. We weavers do that too - touching fabric even if someone we don't know is wearing it. (Usually at a weaving conference or where other weavers congregate; and we do usually ask first of course!) In fact, it is called "The Weavers' Handshake"

    Best regards, your future customer,
