Barry has been very busy, he is making a shelving unit for our bathroom. He keeps bringing bits of it in to show me and I am so impressed with his woodworking skills. I hope all the bits fit together!
Whilst I was watching my man at work I took a photo of my new Alpine bed through the conservatory window. All the little plants look happy to have been planted. We had had some snow that morning so I was reluctant to go outside and do some closer photo work. Also, the floor was covered in sawdust and I didn’t want to walk through it in my woolly slippers. There is a very pretty primula in there. I have left the labels on for now as I need to learn their names. My Mum can just tell you what everything is, what a memory! I notice that my little tree looks a bit wonky, I better get out there and straighten her up…
This is such a draughty house, we can’t quite work out where the draughts are coming from so we have bought a friend or two to help keep the cold at bay. Sorry about the messy carpet, sawdust gets everywhere!
I have been spinning, but I guess you knew that. This is some Shetland wool. I am getting finer and finer yarn now…I do love spinning, so therapeutic. I even dyed some fibre yesterday, I’ll be having a sheep in the back garden next!
This is our landing. The blind is a bit ruined, did you notice? It also takes us quite a while to get the blind to stay down, it keeps wanting to roll up, cartoon style! It is rotten anyway, every time we pull it down it rips a bit more, so…….
I chose some material, some lining and some interlining
and then I found some toning pompoms
which altogether turned into this curtain. I just need to do the heading and then it can be hung. I am hoping that it will stop some more of the draughts, it is certainly a heavy curtain.
I do love homemaking! I don’t like housework but I love a tidy home!
