MOVIN' ON UP, NOTHING CAN STOP ME....
Well, it's done and I've moved in!
All freshly painted and ready for action! I like my sewing machine to be at the end of the table, because it doesn't bounce around so much (and the sockets are down that end too)
On the opposite wall is the ironing board plus the bookshelves.....
At last there's a place for my boxes of scraps, sewing books, tin of dried lavender etc etc....plus some house files. Well, they had to go somewhere...!
It's quite interesting - I always thought I had a huge stash but actually, I'm quite minimalistic now I come to see it all arranged like this. I need to get my cork board on one wall - that's where I keep ATCs, cards and other favourite bits of stuff that friends send.
And the desk has already seen a bit of action...my new great niece arrived last Wednesday. Her arrival came very fast - so much so that my niece's partner, who is part of the amateur acting groups that are part of the Shakespeare 400th anniversary tour. had to leave his role as Flute in A MIdsummer Night's Dream at the RSC in Stratford upon Avon after the first act! Luckily there was an understudy on standby. The Director of the RSC went front of stage just before the second act to explain why there'd been a change of cast and the reason why....this got a huge round of applause!! So the arrival of Edith Hettie Molly Skinner made it onto the BBC news. I think she's destined for a life on the stage with a start like that :-)
Lots of pretty buttons and bows......
Fit for the first girl to be born on our side of the family since her mum arrived thirty years ago....it's been all boys up to now! Yay, I can buy pink....woohoo!!!
Have a great week!
