An Update: House etc..


Yesterdays fascinator experiment went well..I was thinking of you Julie (hattitude) as we marshalled in the sinamay into shape! Could’ve done with your skill!!


No real finished ones to reveal yet..(the first official creative coffee is on Wednesday) but I think we’re a bit more prepared..


(It’s great stuff just to let loose and play with..I recommend it.)


On the house front, there’s no longer a broken neck risk checking out the cellar…we now have stairs!..


Upstairs…could that actually be a sink in the kitchen??!


To the unknowing eye, this all just looks like mismatched piles of wood..

To me, it’s the light at the end of the tunnel..(even knowing, once it’s made it’s coming out (sob!) to be painted (and so the floor can go down))..but this is pure progress. We may even have a working bin soon – the excitement, the luxury!

    Hmmm, I’m having a flashback to all those BBC DIY/Fix It shows: Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Anna Ryder Richardson, Graham Wynne, etc.

    Hats are amazing! Plus I love the goose oil cloth.
    House looks so exciting! I will be in your shoes in a few months, can’t wait to get started but dreading the middle bit of complete chaos. xx
