Rainy Day Tales

The rain has subsided here this morning but it looks like it is not too far away. It is very very wet and our drains have overflowed again but it is probably the best drop of rain that we have had since moving here 3 years ago. Last night I made some sausage rolls for a quick and easy dinner.

They were very nice - I added some tomato relish that I made in the summer which gave them a nice flavour.
I did roll the sleeves up yesterday and got stuck into fixing up my little studio. It took me 6 hours !!!! I cleaned out the built in robe on one side of the room and made it into a temporary storage area for all of the shop stock.

The room looks so much tidier.

As does my desk and filing system.

Yes I can now see the carpet !!

And the shelves look so neat (For now)

I am so very pleased with having it tidy and did manage to trace out a few stitcheries for the BOM's that I am behind on and also did some cutting on a new long term project that I am working on.

Today I would like to get a little more done as well as 1 coat of paint on the shop - We will see how I go !!

Thanks you to all of the swappers in the Advent swap - We have 56 of you so far. You should have all received a welcome e-mail. If you haven't please e-mail me again as it means that I do not have your details. Jo and I are going to give the swap it's own blog in the next week or two.

Hugs for now.....

Your Sausage Rolls looks scrummy!! I made some a couple of weeks ago for the freezer and used relish - it really does make a difference!!
Your studio does look very neat now!! There is NO WAY I could show mine off at the moment - cause you can only see the carpet from the door to the sewing machine :( - just a track lol

Doesn't it feel better when you can see the floor . My kids won't eat anything but homemade sausage rolls (spoilt brats)

Wow, do your sausage rolls ever look tasty! I don't suppose you'd indulge us with a copy of your recipe, would you? :)
Your room looks great too...I would give anything to have a room for all my crafting and office needs...I share the dining room in our tiny duplex, so it's always cluttered. Your organization of all your things looks terrific!
