Just a little post to let you know that I haven't disappeared down a plumbing pipe!
Thank you for your patience, and please know that I am following and appreciating your posts; if I haven't commented recently, I'm sorry, but hopefully things will be back to normal soon...
I will be focusing on the mimosa bedroom in an effort to get it finished by the end of February (including all sewing, ha ha ha!), so here are a few photos, complete with cracked plaster and unfinished windows...
The bed hanging will be on the left hand side. I am starting to experiment with fabric draping, to find a good method that won't ruin the silk I am using... it isn't easy! I'll let you know what I find out during my trials...
I have recently acquired a few new items for the bedroom, which I can't wait to show you, but have to be patient and wait for the postman!
The parlour through to the bedroom
A little corner of the parlour (somebody definitely needs to sweep up that mess on the floor!)
And last, but by absolutely no means least, a very big thank you to Irene of Tenement fame, who surprised me by sending a copy of her fabulous calendar!
Such a lovely idea, and it's wonderful to be able to look at her photos without turning on my computer! It has pride of place above my work desk, and is a welcome piece of 'back hame'.
She was also very generous and sent me some tartan fabric, which I can't wait to use as draught excluding curtains in the hall - the residents must be absolutely freezing!
Thank you, thank you Irene, you really cheered up my flooded-out and cracked-piping January!
