Photo's of my finished shop :)

I finally got some good pictures of the finished shop to show the world how proud I am :)

I just want to say how grateful I am to the people who've done a lot of work helping and supporting me in the process of getting things ready. The shop looks great, even if I do say so myself. Everyone here has been working so hard and I think it shows. I'm really happy with the way everything has turned out after all the hours put into stripping the floor, restoring the fireplace
, re-upholstering the chairs, lime-waxing the furniture and the mirrors, making the privacy screen, making the curtains, hanging a new door, and basically decorating the rooms so beautifully. The jobs seemed endless! Everyone's worked like troopers around me so that I've been able to keep on top of the sewing! My family are diamonds, and my husband a treasure.

On top of all that, my mum and dad have given me an absolutely beautiful gift of a
personalised visitor guest book, which I cant wait to see fill up with comments over time. I'm sure that will be something I can cherish when I grow old, and look back on this whole project with fond memories. I have added a link to the bookmakers on my site by the way as they seem like a fabulous, friendly little company and could be very useful to anyone looking for a personalised guest book for their wedding!

Update; My doors are open :)


Silver Lining Sewing Rooms is now open!

The only thing that we're waiting for is the signage.
I'll take some photo's in the morning and publish them on here tomorrow evening for you all to see...

...Until then, here's a few pics taken a couple of weeks back. The rooms weren't quite ready in these photo's, but you can see how they look!
