I've been busy making things for the advent swap I've signed up for as I have to post next week so have been frantically knitting/sewing/crocheting!! I can't even show you as I don't want to spoil the surprise for my partner.
I did have some company the other evening:
How could I refuse when W asked if he could sew something? He made a case for his phone and now wants to help me make felt Christmas decorations - maybe he'll get hooked and become a famous fashion designer?!!
I've also finished a pretty little demi-lune table:
If I had anywhere for it go I'd keep this one as I really love the shape and I've done it in one of my fave Annie Sloan combos "Old White" and "Paris Grey". It's for sale here on eBay....
My friend L and I are booked to do an Annie Sloan painting workshop in December so I am looking forward to learning new techniques, although I am pretty confident with painting & distressing I want to learn how to do a crackle finish, gilding and decoupage - my decoupage always looks pants!!
Following my battle with Cath Kidston over the cracked mugs they have sent me five new ones:
- it only took 6 weeks of wrangling before they gave in so although it was a case of "better late than never" they have redeemed themselves somewhat!!
Mr G has had to into the office today (he works from home 99% of the time) and I am really missing him!! We do spend virtually 24/7 together and I hate it when he's not around, I guess we're lucky as I know a lot of people wouldn't cope with being together constantly - he has his Man Cave (the garage) and I have my Girl Cave (sewing room) which helps I think.
Catch up again soon....
