Progress on all fronts

Here we go, things are moving along in the right direction thank goodness. There is finally some semblance of order in the workshop and in the rest of my mad life. Yesterday I dared go back into the bomb site that I had left the place in on friday and begin the task of trying to find everything a new home. It was one of those tasks where you have to find the one place to start that when that’s done will allow you to move something so as to clear something else and the whole thing eventually falls into place like a jigsaw. I may have mislaid a couple of pieces of said jigsaw but the picture is becoming clearer.

I’m still waiting for the sink to be plumbed in and the joiner to come back to finish off so there are bits and pieces that can’t be sorted till that happens but for the time being it’s workable and I have thrown the first new workshop pots! Whippee!

Thank you all for your kind comments the other day, it wasn’t having a great time as you may have guessed. It hadn’t half been a heck of a couple of weeks! I think having to stand up and do a talk was the final straw. This week I feel like a whole new Hannah again, fingers crossed this is the new year starting properly. Here’s to the rest of it!

  1. You will get there. Life is a journey not a destination. I know you did not ask but I'll share this any way: I'd fix the space next to door as a place to show and store finished work. I'd especially make a display in front of the window so it is easy to see. This way you've got the back area for work and people don't have to troop through there to see pots/items. You could also put the wheel right in the window to make it easier to see you work, too. Sorry, don't mean to imply you don't have a plan or a good one. Just my marketing/sales view on the world coming through.Keep the faith. It will all come together!

    I really like the idea of potting in the window. Nothing will draw a crowd better. It would also be nice to look up and see what's happening in your world.The new studio is looking great, I envy the wood stove.

    Hi you two, there is another window going in behind where my kick wheel is at the moment, at the minute it's still an ugly draughty metal shutter but soon (hopefully) the wheel will be in that window. I need to be able to see the birds on the bird feeders.The fire is great but is going to take a bit of learning before I master it, very different from the one at home!Thanks both for your thoughts. Best wishes,h

    Looking good Hannah! I do see the calipers have found a new temporary home there on the nail. Nice to hear you've already made some pots too.
