After 23 years of raising girls, decorating bedrooms & sewing
up pretty bits & pieces for them, two of my girls
have set up their own wee nest.
Lauren & Sophie are sharing a real nice
apartment together, its a 2 min walk from my
house......so it feels like they haven't gone anywhere.
As a result I have a spare room.......a room to do
whatever I want with, sooooooo
obviously I opted to have my very own
sewing room. Oh my gosh a room to work in.
A room that doesn't need to be cleared every evening for dinner.
I have been using my dining table for so
long now that I'm finding the prospect of my own
workspace almost dreamlike!!!!!
Anyway lots to be done, I have painted & wallpapered
so far & am dying to show you my WIP
Found this roll in a remnant basket at Laura Ashley....6euro
Absolute bargain. I papered one wall & even had enough to paper
a small feature wall on my tiny landing.
Ohhhhhh its just such a pretty, cheerful sweet pattern.
Makes me smile getting up in the morning,
walking past it on my way down the stairs to brew up
my first coffee of the day.
Little pressie from Lauren for my NEW ROOM
Still quite a bit to do so I'll wait to show you the rest when its finished
Eeeeeeekkkk can't wait.
This is my other project for the next few days
A quilt to quilt......its been thrown
aside for soooooooo very long, so this
morning I finally got myself into the nearest
fabric shop for wadding & backing fabric.
I'm loving the spots, hope it adds a nice twist to the
overwhelmingly pink granny square quilt top.
Back (hopefully) in a few days with
I've enjoyed so much catching up with you over the
last few days.....made me realise how
much I missed you all.
Blogging really does become a lovely part of
your life & I'm glad I've started up again
Thanks for your comments...is always great to hear from you
Have a sweet week
Lots of love Karen X
