Hello everyone, I hope you are making the most of the long Bank Holiday weekend to do some crafting or simply taking life easy. We’ve had a rather busy few days but it’s all been good ^^
First of all, we’ve had an offer for our house, and accepted. So, fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly over the coming weeks/months and that we’ll be able to do the official signing asap.
This wonderful news galvanised us into doing more sorting and clearing out . . . getting covered in thick cobwebs in the process, as we sorted through items that have been stored under our lean-to outside, for the last 13 years lol. Here’s just a small part of what we took to the local tip
We still have several journeys to make but it’s nice to feel we’re gradually getting there.
I ordered some special plastic storage bags on amazon the other day, the ones where you suck out the air with vacuum cleaner, so that I can try and pack some things more “tightly”. While ordering, I added a book to my cart ^^ . . . naughty, but nice.
Here’s what I treated myself to
18 designs by Joan Elliott. They are all so gorgeous, you’ll understand why I was naughty
And when that arrived, it prompted me to get back to one of my WIPs which was fast becoming a UFO. You may remember that I began stitching Joan Elliott’s “Maiden and Unicorn” last year? Well last time I did any work on it was in January this year, so it’s been a while
That is what it looked like early January . . . and here’s what it looks like now.
Not a great deal of progress, but I plan on keeping this project close to hand and working on more of the maiden’s robe.
