Hey ho, one day I am sure will be rooted to the sofa!
I have over the past few months been having a huge sort out .
Nothing has escaped my eye.
At one point I was even looking at the dog's, not joking I was.
But I wouldn't of course.
Once the decision is made to part with something that is no longer really ever going to be worn again or used again I feel great, happier to be rid of it.
I have also, and this may sound weird, recently felt all shopped out!
I can honestly say I need nothing more.
Which makes me feel a bit sad as I love to go shopping or bargain hunting, but how much stuff do we really need.
Today while out with Katie, shopping! I walked around the shops with a feeling of...
hmmm do I really need to be here, apart from having lunch.
Odd to say that but I had no real interest in looking at anything at all (apart from little dresses).
Now this maybe a good thing.
Now having just said all that, I still have a few things that I have stashed away that need to be given the treatment.
This Settle is for the 'Barn'.
I have painted it in Designers Guild paint, Mid Lead...I think!
I do not need cushions, I have already told myself.
Blue skies really do change my mood.
Even though I am into my greys at the moment, I hate grey sky, so depressing.
Moving now into my little workroom....
Note the candles, I have to set the mood, relaxing smells as I beaver away.
Blue skies give energy to get on with things.
So I potter in the garden, watering my pots!
a favourite pastime as I find it so relaxing and a great time to think things out.
at long last.....
I went out and bought this material after the were burgled.
I just felt too open and wanted something to pull across the windows in my kitchen.
The window where they got in.
I didn't want nets or a heavy curtain, just something to give privacy without blocking out the light during the day if I felt the need to close them.
In no time they were up. Not finished, still pinned at the hem!
But the pelmet which I had made when the kitchen was fitted, did not really go.
Could I be bothered to go out and buy more material?
Luckily I had a small strip of material left over.
I made a trim which I then pinned over the red ribbon, I will hand sew this over the top of the red trim which means I can take it off easily if I decide to make red check curtains for a change in the winter.
