Almost Done!


Come on in!


The shop is near complete--major stuff in place and there's a lathe passed on to us from John Jorgenson via our friends Pat and Connie Toops, that we are picking up this afternoon.

John is painting the back door and I'm at work on a barn quilt to  be hung outside, above the long window. 


The place is a miracle of light and space.


The workbench under the window is a treasure--handmade by and given to John by our friend Drew Langsner.


A place for everything and everything in its place . . .


And the hydrangeas are still at it, joined by an exuberant volunteer Buddleia!

It's been a long journey--but thanks to the help of friends, the shop is back!

I don't think I've read what happened to the shop. It is a nice light airy place. Can't wait to see your barn quilt. I have wood set aside to do that too at the prompting of daughter who also took old wood from our barn to do the same.

The old barn that housed Johns workshop was completely destroyed by fire in November 2019.https://vickilanemysteries.blogspot.com/2019/11/its-all-just-stuff.html

Congratulations. A long project has come to fruition. It must feel great.

It looks so much bigger inside than it does from the outside. I love all the light. Getting it finished is an accomplishment indeed!

Cant wait to see your barn quilt! So glad you all have finished the new workshop...and incorporated memorial pieces as well which will be well used, I'm sure. I know this equipment will provide many hours of creativity and is much more than a hobby. Congrats on an excellent job.

That is a wonderful shop. Lots of room with lots of lights is a great idea.
