IT'S A FREEZING COLD WOYWW #140

Brrrrrr.. turn up the heating, get your woolly socks on and make a brew, then sit down and surf the crafting web for fellow WOYWWers courtesy of our leader, Julia. Can I say a great big thank you to Julia and everyone who offered me advice last week on washer/dryers. I took everything that was said on board, made loads of enquiries and went round several stores before deciding that this type of machine is not all it's cracked up to be and therefore I won't be buying one.
With that decision made I had to re-think my workroom plans for more space. In the end all I did was move one 12" shelf and quite unbelievably, I now have more light - which means I shall be able to sit down to craft, - plus, much more space to work on. What do you think?

This is my main bit where I have to stand. So much space here.

This is the right hand bit where I sit to compute. The shelf I moved is the one holding my Big Shot. It was between the tv shelf and the one above it before and held my Alteration dies. However, the weight of them was a bit too much and the shelf started to lean causing my strip dies to fall off - twice!! No problem with them now because they are in a cupboard.
Finally, this is the best I can do to photograph it all together.

This one shows the glass wall and all the extra light I now have. I took this one the other day whilst still making the changes. I have no idea what that mucky yellow bit of cloth is!! LOL.
Righto, I'm off to get dressed now. Happy woyww everyone. x
