Did you watch the Sewing bee last night?
Oh I love that program. It really makes you want to dust down that sewing machine and get making, don't you think?
That is exactly what I am planning tomorrow as I am getting together with my friend Irene and our sewing machines, I wonder what we'll be making?
Watch this space....
Back to today and I thought I'd update you on the kitchen front. Progress has been slow but that is mainly due to the fact we have just done a little bit each week or when hubby has been on days off. Nearly at the stage of new work tops and flooring now and I've picked out a new sink and taps.
I've also seen something a little different I want to put up on my wall instead of the usual cupboards....but more of that another time, as if I do, it will take a month to arrive...plenty of time to share!
Here are the finished cupboards....
I'd be interested to hear what flooring and worktops you would go for. I have a suspended floor so can't have tiles (so hubby says!) which limits what I can have. I know what I'd like....lets see if you agree.
Here is my wallpaper....
It's duck egg blue although with the light today it has more of a silvery/lilac feel. Trust me it's blue!
I think I told you the tale of this wallpaper.
I was in our local DIY store looking when I got a phone call from my PI boss to say hi. I was about to say I'd ring her back later as I was out and about when I heard a man's voice.....how strange.
It was none other than the lovely Ken Oliver from Spellbinders who was over in the UK to do some demonstrations and classes. We had a lovely chat whilst I looked at this paper, very surreal, so I told him I just had to have it....fate and all that!
So Ken if you happen to see this the wallpaper is up.
It only remains for me to wish you all the best this Wednesday, beautiful blue skies up here, it is almost Spring like, fingers crossed. Enjoy the rest of your day. x
