Sorry, I've been AWOL again but too many horrible emotional things happened last year and I've just needed some more time to get back on track again! It's funny when you've been on that so often quoted 'emotional rollercoaster', it leaves you not quite knowing who or what you are and priorities all change place on your Agenda! I'm not the first, I won't be the last and I know things will fall back into place!
Enough of the doom ~ let me wish you all a somewhat belated HAPPY NEW YEAR and I hope you all had a great Christmas and enjoyed all your festivities. I expect you're all fed up with looking at pictures of the fluffy white stuff BUT you have to admit it was sooooo pretty . . .
So many bad things happened last year that I never got round to showing you the work we had done in the back garden, our horrible black iron railings and uneven patio slabs were all removed and instead we now have wooden ones and matching decking with sunken in lights all round it . . .
The wooden pergoda matches too . . .
BUT this is the best part ~ my new sewing room . . .
There is a stone path that leads down to it and you just might be able to see the edge of more decking which again has pretty sunken lights. We've put an enormous corner sofa in there with all my favourite cushions, a big fluffy rug and in the corner is a TV so I can watch all my craft programmes and listen to my favourite music in peace (visitors by appointment only)!!!
It has electricity and heating which can be set on a timer so lovely and toasty for first coffee break of the day, I can take the bunnies down there with me and we positioned it to give maximum light and be just perfect for sewing . . .
These are my recent finishes, one before Christmas, one during Christmas and 3 since ~ all need to be finished into
wall hangings, flat folds, pillows and as and when they are I will show you the before and after and all the finer details!
This is my current project . . .
I would fall of my chair if any of you knew what it was and I shall keep you in suspense until there's a bit more to show!!!
Thank you to all of you that have stuck by me and been patient, many of you were not and it's so disheartening when the 'followers' number keeps going down. I have not been actively reading posts so please don't take it to heart if I've not visited you, I'm back now and looking forward to a happier year ahead.
Thanks for stopping by
