... ie .....the LONG and epic tale!.. of the front room may actually be coming to an end !! I KNOW! its hard to believe xx
The old carpet is dead and gone to the tip ... and a lovely young man called Chris is putting up wallpaper even as we chat here xx
Tomorrow he will begin the mammoth task of painting ... I so admire anyone who can do this .. and as I live in a Victorian terrace and my ceilings are about 10 ft high you need courage to try !.... I think half (if not more) of my problem is that I just find it soooooo boring! lol x
I went and chose a carpet.. oh yes! THEN came home and had a had a meltdown at the cost of it !!!... took me a while to recover I can tell you!!!!!!!!!!! I just keep telling my self it will last my lifetime .. and be worth the expense!... I again have the problem that my room does not meet the "standard" size of a room in the modern house so I need the "extra" bit to ensure that it fits .. mind you I would rather have my quirky odd shaped house than a modern one any day xx
I have decided that I WILL NOT let the dreaded GARTER stich defeat me and so ... as the next shawl in my book is called GARTER LOVE you may guess what I have been doing! THIS..
is the result x I may just be getting there ...mind you the whole time I was making it I kept thinking .. this would look so nice in stocking stitch!! So guess what I am doing now..
... the dyer has names the colour Vampires Tipple which I just LOVE xx It is a super wash merino and nylon mix and I SOOO wish I could share the feel of it with you all .. it is soo soft I can barely feel it as it slips through my fingers x LOL x OOPS .. off to make a cuppa for the worker x
