Rufus was in total agreement so no exercise for me.....Then I decided to have a laundry binge. Bed stripped, towels changed every scrap of laundry collected and washing machine and tumble drier on overtime. That meant lots of running up and down stairs as my drier is in the bathroom, it was the only place it would fit. The utility room has my chest freezer in and there is no way I was putting that in the bathroom.
All the curtains are made and hung, here is the fabric. It isn't really kitchen styled but it is pretty enough and it is out of deep stash.
Whilst I had the camera out I thought that you might like to see my "peg" board.
There needs to be another 2 or 3 hooks but they need picking up from Wilkinsons the next time I am near one. I need to have a tidy up with the threads as the reels are all over the show, I usually keep them in colour groups. You can see the scissor keeper that the lovely Chrissie made for me, it will be moving to the board once I get my hooks.
One last Christmas gift, Francesca found this and it was in my stocking. It is perfect and the SO had it on the door in no time.
The rest of my day will include some ironing, all that laundry!, and a selective tidy round the sewing room. I have the lining for my dress to iron as well, then there will be pattern pinning and cutting out. I do not expect to do any sewing on it today, but tomorrow afternoon is looking good.
Dinner tonight is the Barlotto, all the veg has been prepped (the SO has excellent knife skills) the barley is weighed out and veg stock is ready to go. I have defrosted some Edamame beans for extra protein but there is a small piece of St Agur cheese in the fridge that may just go in to bolster the creaminess. Oh and a little Stilton may well get crumbled onto the top.
On that note, with a little background noise of rumblies in the tumblies I am off to crack on with that ironing.
