Since we got the keys last Monday evening, we have been backwards and forwards to the new home most days. 22 miles each way, about 40 minutes in the car
I have been cleaning and cleaning and cleaning, mostly the kitchen
Every journey to the house, I take a car full of stuff, most of the cupboards in my old kitchen are empty now and I have filled the newly cleaned cupboards
I will take you on a tour…
Dining room, which has a radiator under the window but it is not attached to the central heating system, grrr, another job!
and the bit which needs lots of work
The whole of the sitting room needs lots of love and attention but it will be lovely when it is all done. Oh and almost none of the doors fit into their frames…soooo annoying!
There is a little gangway between the kitchen and the sitting room which has loads of room for books, a small room leading off the gangway is the downstairs loo which has a purple bubbly sparkly loo seat but it doesn’t show up in the photos, the paint used on the walls is sparkly too…
view from the front door, sorry about the over exposure
and upstairs we have
the main bedroom
The guest room
My workroom which is going to be decorated first so I can get on and do my sewing
The bathroom, with a Jacuzzi bath which Barry fixed and a walk in shower
Everywhere is very grubby, the house was abandoned over a year ago, I’ll soon get it spick and span but it’s hard when you have 2 houses to make good
Our furniture gets moved over to the new house a week tomorrow, I am looking forward to just having one home to sort out. Right now, I am just chipping away at everything and I just hope that it all comes together in the end..
We found this note on the windowsill of my workroom, made us both feel a bit sad but happy that the little girl that used to live there loved this house, shame her Daddy wasn’t such a nice man to deal with!
And while all that is going on I managed to sew a pile of hexibags
all of them were posted to their new owners yesterday…
I also designed a new little sister to the Hexibag, The Little Dumpling
it’s just a bit smaller than the hexibag but has all of the same features including the clip but this little cutie has a shapely bottom, just like me! haha This small project bag is being tested at the moment and adjustments will be made if necessary before they hit my shop. I can’t wait to do some more sewing as loads of lovely new fabric has arrived for me to play with
I have also got a layer of hexipuffs in my basket
and I discovered Amanda Perkins amazing Lily Blanket
so pretty…I am imagining this on the back of one of our sofas
I moustache…I want to do another star before I hit the sack!
