I was out shopping for my kitchen bits. I finally decided on slate effect flooring and oak effect work tops. I would have liked real slate and oak but as we may not be here in a couple of years, this refurbishment is about tidying the place up.
I've also been told that as we have a suspended floor, slate is not a good idea as it will move.
My units were made by hand as the previous owner was a chippy. It therefore seems such a shame to take them out. Plus is it not trendy just now to reuse and recycle?
I did have pictures to show you but the Internet says no! Boo, hiss.
I haven't picked up my crochet since earlier in the week but I have picked out my next couple of projects, Spring bunting and some boot warmers.
Watch this space.
The ball is also rolling for my next material project and using the lovely cotton beach quarter....if only I could find my red bias binding which appears to be in the loft. Argh, it might be easier to buy some more, how sad is that?
Today I have decided to show you a scrapbook page that I made ages ago but I saw it the other day and it did make me smile. This is from a 6" album that I really should add too. The original idea was a monthly challenge set by Karen with a Scottish word. The layout had to include the Scottish word, the meaning and a relevant photograph. I really did enjoy this challenge and would love to continue and finish the album. Another PhD in crafting required!
I think you can gather the meaning of the word "sicht"....what a sight!
Somebody still likes chocolate puddings to this day.
Little ones that get covered in food always make me smile....saving a wee bit for later or having trouble finding their mouths?
As it is a Scottish album I decided to go neutral and tartan. Keeping it simple..
I've also done quite a bit of reading lately finishing off this group of books......
I do like a detective story rather than a chick lit book. These are a light read and I do like to try and solve the crime before I get to the end.
I don't always manage it but it's fun trying.
That's all from me today, back tomorrow with more. x
