Smoked Trout It Is!
What a chaotic week. I had forgotten just how messy decorators can be and what an upheaval it is to have new carpets fitted. I have totally lost contact with all my 'crafty' stuff (all packed away in a cupboard) and we are sleeping in a bedroom seemingly full of the whole contents of the rest of the house.
The good news is that Farrow and Ball's "Smoked Trout" is the perfect colour for our house and it looks wonderful with crisp white doors, windows and skirting. Unfortunately the mess will last for a further two weeks so no hope of sewing, however, I have managed to keep some felt and cottons and intend to try to make just one or two small items in the spare moments when not making tea for the decorators or carpet fitters.
Even better good news is that I discovered quite by chance that I was a lucky winner of one of Sweeypie's treasured journals.
I shall post a pic when it arrives. Thank you so much Sweetypie xx.
The lovely Benta at SLIKstitches has sent me a lovely bag ... she has just returned from Australia and the fabric was obviously one of her lucky finds there. The bag is beautifully made (Thank you so much Benta xx) and the fabric is enchanting. I shall definitely need new shoes to go in such an unusual shoe bag!
