Village Progress Feb 09

Here is the latest progress picture on my Village. The landscapers have been completed for Ann's Garden, though there is still a little to finish on the far side of Terri's garden but that will not be done until the cottage on the other side of her is built.

Lisa will be taking over the care of the Craft Shop and plans to run classes and workshops there and Shiela will be taking over the Tea Room, with plans for many kinds of tea and home made scones - as I am not a tea drinker I do hope she will be serving coffee and hot chocolate too. Maybe she will have a little counter selling nice chocolates and sweeties too. Lisa the tea rooms are not quite next door but there is only the florist between you.

Building work has now been halted as I do not think there will be much time for building this week and the contractor has other tasks that need to be attended too. I did promise to show the plans but unfortunately blogger refuses to upload these so I am sorry about that and will try again another time.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on this project, I am so enjoying it. Angela thank you for the info on Beadle the Bard. Also thanks for the comments on my Interview and Lisa I will try to get my questions to you before I go off on holiday but if not I will do it when I get home so please do not think I have forgotton you.

Hugs to all my wonderful blogging friends out there.


may your frogs stay in their ponds

Your village looks great Helen. I love the way you've "landscaped" them into one another rather than just plonked them side by side

I've been checking out specialty teas and I promise to keep coffee, just for you to visit Helen and cream buns and chocolate goodies for those of you who are chocoholics. I've also researched some more home made scones, how do you fancy apricot and also blueberry?
