Someone once told me that, if you don’t do the things you plan to do within the first six months of moving into a new house, you never will. For the most part he’s been right but this time round, happily, I’m proving him wrong.
I was left with a piece of pine flooring from a temporary work-around (so that no-one would fall through the floor when they came in at the front door!); I painted it grey, gave it a sand, had a friend drill four holes in it and then hang it up with rope and the help of reef knots. It’s probably high time I got my own drill and learned to use it properly, but in the meanwhile, well, I’ll just have to take advantage of clever friends….
Blank wall above. Now this:
I’m particularly pleased with the addition of a bracket for a hanging plant (I’ve been following the Instagram ‘boho’ accounts very carefully – plants are key!)
New cross stitch project underway, ‘Guatamalan dogs’ by Mary Norden. Originally stitched with wool on canvas as a cushion cover, but goodness knows I don’t need any more needlepoint in my life. Cross-stitch is making me very happy right now.
Happy weekend, everyone :)
