It’s been a very odd day here.. this morning, at 8.30am sharp, work on installing our brand new bathroom began. Here it is this evening – looking good eh?
I’m hoping that they come back tomorrow…! It has been incredibly noisy and, although the blokes doing the work have been brilliant, it’s always so odd having 2 or 3 strangers hanging around the house, eating your chocolate biscuits… Can’t wait for it to be over, in more ways than one!
In amongst all the upheaval I managed to do a bit of work on a few things. I am taking part in the House of Pinheiro pincushion swap (never can resist a pincushion), and have almost finished what I wanted to make. I just hope my partner likes it. Here’s a little sneak peak:
Of course I am using Liberty fabrics and linen. Speaking of Liberty fabrics, I also set up a Facebook page for the fabric selling side of my life (which I hope is going to grow!) – if you’d like to follow Very Berry Fabrics on Facebook, that would be wonderful…
I’ve also done a few rows of a crochet project that I have underway. I was lucky enough to be approached by Abakahn to do a regular monthly slot on my blog using their products. I decided to use some of their lovely Sirdar Simply Recycled cotton yarn to make a market/produce tote bag. I am hoping to share the pattern with you by the end of the month (fingers crossed!).
What I can say already is that the yarn is an absolute pleasure to work with – highly recommended.
And finally, I did the draw for the interfacing giveaway. Here’s the winning number, provided by the Random Man:
And the winner is Kathie, who chose Joey Potter from Dawson’s Creek as her fictional heroine. Congrats to Kathie – I will be in touch. And a huge thanks again to Julia at Gone to Earth for providing the prize.
