Getting There



I am happy to report that me weekend has not been wasted! This is what I have managed so far. The bottom pillowcases, quilt cover and curtains. I has a bit of a panic today when I could not remember what I had been told about doing the Oxford pillowcases and had to go trundling up to Dolly Traybake's house to get personal tuition this evening, but all worked out well and I am now back on track, and she got into the action too by cutting out and doing most of the sewing of a runner and two velvet pillows for decoration. A bit of finishing off to do and i will be able to show the room in most of it's glory. I am not going to have time to do the painting, so the bright blue walls are going to have to stay for now. There are just not enough hours in the day!

WOW, TOP BANANA FFROG!

That fabric is just lush, I love it. Mega impressed at your newly acquired skills and well done Dolly Traybake for the able aiding and abbetting and impending addition of runner and cushions. How are you going to surpass that?!
