The Loft

Warm welcome,

Here's a look into my loft....

We purchased the house about 24 years ago.(Gosh thats gone quick!!!) It was old, about 1920's-30's. But we saw some potential and it was close to all facilities, at the same time very quiet. We were very enthusiastic, during our earlier married years, so alot was accomplished in a short time. After which we became more laid back(as you do) , it is just maintenance now and I still like my house the same as I did when we first saw it.

The Loft
This was the cavity in the roof, it was such wasted space. So I found a carpenter to line it, and an electrician to put in too many lights and power points. (A girl can't have too many.) It is suppose to have a skylight as well, but we just never got around to it.

Its, probably one of my favourites, but definitely not the most decorative. In fact I don't think there are any decorations at all. It is so peaceful and warm up there. I have a small CD player up there and I listen to my music, whilst I sew and draw prospective projects.I lose complete track of time. I have lost so many hours , I hate to think... Well , here we go up to the top...


It was late afternoon, on a cloudy day when I took these photos, so the colour in some pics are a little off.

This is the view, looking down through the round window, which is shown on my sidebar.

There is a space, for Miss. L. But she doesn't come up as much as she use to, to play. All her things are still here.

Well hope you enjoyed the little glimpse into my world.

Kathryn...I love your sewing loft. I am a little envious, as I am still trying to figure out just where I can sew. Things are too cramped here...but I still feel blessed. Have a wonderful time sewing in your loft.
