Good afternoon girls,
Just what the Doctor ordered, day after day of brilliant sunshine especially as I've had a few days off work to sit and enjoy it while reading a good book and sipping a glass of cool Pimms!!
On Friday I spent the day in the craft room as I got my sister's drapers cupboard, or should that be "draper's drawers", delivered, I had to have a shuffle around to fit it in and I'm delighted with it.
It belonged to our Karen's mother in law who had a shop years ago and when she retired Karen asked if she could have it, she painted it cream and it has a sort of pearly sheen to it, behind the glass is a Laura Ashley fabric and the drawers have little silver handles and above each handle is a place to write what's stored in the drawers.
Two of the drawers are full of tablecloths, napkins, tray cloths and a couple of pinny's and the rest are full of sewing things so I need to sort them all out. The craft room is one of the bigger bedrooms at the back of the house and I share it with Mr Lucey, he makes his home made wine, driftwood boats and camera equipment in his half while mine is full of crafty things, so, as you go into the room there's the armoire, tall chest and the new drapers cupboard,
then I have my desk and chair, and the small bookcase under the table is now beside the table,
piccie's on the wall,
and next to the window is a tall bookshelf full of all my "bit's and piece's",
I've laid all my journals down so that they look like bolts of fabric instead of books,
so, that's my craft room where you'll find me most of the time, notice I didn't show you the whole room as the floor has piles of fabric just waiting to go into the drawers!!
I found this lovely sign in one of the drawers
now I just need to find the right place for it.
Saturday we went to B&Q where all the plants were" BOGOF" so we filled all the pots with lobelia and marigolds and sweet peas and lettuce,
and the hostas have come on realy well with the warmer weather and so far the slugs haven't got them.
For tea we had the "obligitory" barbecue that was delicious and a couple of drinks, just to wash it down with you understand, and then we had a nice walk with the dogs catching the last of the sunshine.
Right I'm off to cook tea or to "prick and ding" in the microwave as Mr Lucey calls it!!
