painting all done

Not managed to get any stitching done this week, time is just disappearing from me. But we did have the painter in this week and the living room is now a lovely shade of sky blue, so pleased with it, now just need to get some curtains and the pictures etc back up and it'll be all done. Got the kitchen finished off as well - am so pleased with how all the renovations have turned out.

picking up my new car tonight (well new to me car) - so excited. ended up with another Renault scenic as i've been pretty happy with the one we've had. but of course that has meant i've had to sort out all the rubbish that was in my old one and make it somewhat presentable to trade it in - not an easy job!

off for the weekend tomorrow and the weather forecast is absolutely dire - will definitely take my stitching down with me as i reckon we will be stuck indoors for a bit.

right better get ready for work now. thanks all for stopping by.

so what have i been up to for the past wee while :


- stitched and finished Bent Creek "May Blooms" which is now hanging up at my work

- Solar System now has uranus, pluto, venus and saturn, think i am heading over to jupiter next

- HAED qs twilight shimmer has been having a wee bit of work on her, about half way through page 3

- Ink Circles bramble and rose has made it on to page 4

i've been very disciplined and sticking to my rotation days so with the bent creek finish i now have a thurs and friday free - so tonight i am going to make a start on bent creek "i do" sampler for my niece's wedding. This isn't till end of July but this gives me plenty of time to get it done and then framed.


same old same old. ended up with loads of time off in April between annual leave, easter public holidays and of course the good ole royal wedding (could really do with one of those every year) so it feels like april just disappeared from us. have actually had to work a full five days this week, i'm exhausted lol!


the plastering is now finished in the living room and got the painter coming on 1 june to paint walls and varnish doors, now just have to pick a colour - thinking of going for a pale blue grey but this could change, this and picking tiles for the kitchen have been the hardest decisions to make..
now officially ran out of money so the rest of the house will be on hold for the forseeable. Especially as my car needs a pile of work done on it and it looks like it's going to be going to the big car heaven instead and a new (well new to me) car bought instead - oh the joys!

plan for the weekend

lee working next three nights so telly and stitching is the order of the day. Am loving the new series of Doctor Who, the kids have been pretty freaked out by it - oh the hours of entertainment i can have scaring the pants off them by sneaking up with masks on, great fun ha ha!

right off to catch up on the soaps and have dinner - have a good weekend all
