our barn full of felt

It's exactly a month since we re-opened after the move and today the felt cutting area (John's domain) had a delivery of second hand racking installed (with a lot of hard work by John, seriously - if you ever move John is the person to help you - he's AMAZING, but that said, you can't have him, sorry)...
I love that the racking is orange & grey rather than that horrid electric blue that it sometimes comes in :-)
John made the cutting table himself (see, I told you.  He's amazing!) which means it is the perfect height for excess felt storage and optimum felt cutting too......the white Ikea Expedit Cube cupboards on the left are double sided - John cuts and fills from his side and I pick orders from the other side...so it's all very useful and rather beautiful too - I can't stop swinging my chair round and looking at it all!!

John this and John that...i'm getting quite embarrassed!
This has been a tough move but Sarah keeps plodding on when all is in chaos around us.
We are a great team and this has been one of the better decisions we have made.
My hope is that we get to spend a bit more family time this year, they have been so supportive but because we work every day it's been difficult finding time to see them, this year we will MAKE time to see them all.
So proud to be part of paper-and-string and so proud to be part of Sarahs life.
John.
