I have not knit a bit of the deco mat….. Bad me….. Must try harder

A gratuitous photo of the finished the socks!!! Just need to wind the yarn for my next pair now!! Tomorrow I will find a moment!!

I have sewn the hall curtains and now the utility ones too… Just need to add curtain tape and get the curtain poles!!

Farm renovation updates!!!

We have bedroom curtains!!! I made them!!!! With a lot of cutting out help from my lovely neighbour, without whom they would not be so well pattern matched!!! They need hemming but I’ve put them up to drop first!! Love them!!!!

I have cut out the fabric for the hall curtains!!! Pattern matched now I know how/that I need to/what that means!! Lol excuse the wobbly photo rushing again!!! But my hallway is the perfect width to cut out from a bolt of fabric!!! 

Downstairs big changes!!!! It’s practically decorated and we have a home emerging from the building site!!!



It’s all coming together!!!

Soon we will be onto fixtures fittings and finishing off the bathrooms upstairs and more doors and handles!!!!

Fabric Shopping!

Things are moving along well at the holding so much so that I thought I shoud get a wriggle on and start thinking about making the curtains especially since cheeky chops needs most of my attention these days!!

Sooo Jennie of Owl About Yarn and I went over to fabricworld the other week and this is what I picked up!!

Upgrading the tin hut!

Winter is coming….
And to be honest it’s blooming freezing for the first night we stay at the tin hut as the oil fired burner warms up enough to get the damp off the air!! So to avoid some of the draughts etc we have made a couple of upgrades!!
