Sorry...no makes at the moment.

Hi..really hope you are all ok?
sorry i haven't posted/made anything lately,
would love to be crafting and hope to soon :)

we are decorating our dining room/craft room,
 after the wallpaper being on for nearly 14 years
it has needed re-plastering so just waiting 
for that to dry out and the decorators are in next week.  

 we had an extra socket put in while it needed
plastering as they were all up one end.


 i have picked the colours a pebble colour for 3 walls
and the window wall as a feature one with velvet plum
which is a real change :)
also managed to sell all the pine furniture
for pennies towards the new bits.

thanks so much for stopping by,not
