so it seemed a good idea to do something useful around the house. Obviously, the first thing you need on rainy days like these is cake. Lots of raisin studded rock cakes to accompany the inevitable cups of tea.
Then, time to tacke the sewing room. As an unreformed neat freak, my sewing room has been driving me to distraction for some time. Not only does it need completely ripping out and refitting (and that’s going to have to wait for a little while), it’s also been the dumping ground for anything and everything over the last few months whilst we’ve been doing the rest of the house. Which means that it looked like this….
Not good. Also not good is me freaking out about the disorder and the inability to find something as simple as a ruler or a particular pattern. Just not pretty. Ask Mr Stitches (poor man!).
….and I’ve finished 2, yep 2, cross stitches that are for Christmas pressies, so all I’m showing you is a few stitches. BTW, those are French Knots, not mistakes.
