Where the magic happens...

This is a snapshot of my workroom! It's not big and I don't have loads of storage but it's my haven. Thank goodness for Ikea and their brilliant storage ideas! I have french doors out onto my garden, the radio playing and the kettle on hand for the several cups of tea required throughout the day.

Oh and a stair gate to keep the dogs out! 

This is where the magic happens!!
