Bill’s piano and the new barn

Hello again everyone,

Thought it was time to show you developments here at Pinks Barn. Bill is calling the new barn the lump sum lounge! By the end of this week, we should be waterproof which will be a relief! On Monday I was wading  as I walked to the studio and very ticked off indeed. The weather has not been very kind to us.

The barn is coming on at last…..

You can see how the trusses are put together

Now we just need to join it to the house and studio

Phil, our sparks, looks like a ghost!

Last week, Bill and I went to The Coach House  in Swansea to look at a second hand baby grand piano as his treat from his pension! I am spending the rest on this lovely building……. We have had his existing piano for over twenty years and it was old then. It was built before the war and has done remarkably well considering how we have abused it! It does not like temperature changes  (central heating) and is in a poor state now.

The concert grnd!

Here my old fella is playing a Steinway concert grand that we could not afford! Still he sounded marvellous.

How do you choose?

This is it! Just beautiful

This simply gorgeous piano will be delivered when it is safe to put it in the new barn- We need to be carpenter free and dry first.I expect if I had not changed the plans twice during the build we would have been finished by now!

Looking good. Why can I not see the last 2 pics? There are just little white crosses on a black background.

Under Stitch TV , “Looking @ Cross Stitch Fabrics”, I love the sampler from 1777 that was reproduced. Is there a way to buy the chart?
