The boys break up this week and we are really looking forward to Friday. I'm whittling down the school uniform, if it looks small, holey and generally yucky, it goes straight in the bin after 1 wear - at least it saves on the washing! Friday will see lunchboxes, water bottles and shoes going straight in the bin. I try and recycle where I can but after 12 months they've seen better days!
Last week as you know saw us having the wood burner fitted. It's in and looking great. I went out Friday night and hubby, true to form lit it - He then had to open the windows as it was so hot (no surprise!). I think some practice is required - it took him a rather long time to get it going.
Whilst there was lots of mess going on downstairs, I had to get a wholesale order finished. I had been putting these fabric flowers off for a while as I get bored of doing the same thing (this was 24 flowers and each flower had 2 different fabrics which needed to be cut out). Nevertheless it got done.
I also set to with finishing a patchwork bolster cushion. After painstakingly sewing by hand all the rectangles I then mucked up the end bits where the ric-rack and the ribbon is. No-one else has noticed which is a relief, but boy I was getting hot and bothered doing it.
My gorgeous vintage curtains arrived and I'm mighty pleased. They arrived beautifully wrapped and in my haste opened them, before photographing them, but I've taken a photo of the lovely packaging. Take a look at Vintage Home as they do some great vintage items.
Right, work beckons, and if there's time, a spot of decorating so no doubt more blood, sweat and tears!
Ta ta for now.
