I've been busy this week with a new bit of home improvement. I've always wanted a mirror above the fireplace in our sitting room, but never got round to getting one. I saw one in a local furniture place that was just the right size, but didn't think the bright gold went with the room. A couple of coats of Farrow and Ball "White Tie" from a tester pot I had and a bit of finishing wax and it looks lovely. It's amazing how much prettier the candles look reflected in the mirror. I'm going to find some more and I can't wait to decorate it at Christmas with fairy lights and stuff!
Before painting. A bit too "blingy" for me!
The shirt fabric quilt is nearly finished. I sewed the top together last week then it sat on the floor upstairs for a few days while I gradually pinned it together with the back and batting. Not one of my favourite jobs, especially as Lottie decided it would be good to keep walking over it! Aargghh!! It would be a lot easier with a big table like the one in my dream workroom haha! Here's a couple of pics, I'll show you more when I've done the binding. Can't decide what to use for that yet.
The sun seems to have gone awol recently, but the trees did look glorious last week.
Just wanted to say hello to my new followers. I do enjoy reading all your blogs, even if I don't always leave comments. It's so interesting seeing what people are up to around the world.
Also been trying to join Pinterest but it seems you need to be on facebook which I've managed to avoid for various reasons. Anybody any ideas?
