The Carpets are down but......................


Well the carpets are down, the fitters arrived at 6.30pm mon night and left at 10pm, a perfectly respectable time for fitting carpets??? by then the rain was pouring down and my furniture on the patio , altho covered, was getting a good pounding but the carpets were in, I have to say that on friday they are coming back to hopefully make a better job of the lounge carpet which looks as tho' one of them left his chip butty under it in several places and which didn't show up in the artificial light on monday night, or perhaps we were just too tired to notice, not happy? annoyed? yes you get the idea. To happier things, this morning I've finished another 2 page spread of my cowgirl book, this time using denim and some hessian with other blue fabrics to match the black and white of the picture, I almost feel back to normal after doing this, only almost!
Another happy thing is that I've signed up for an online workshop with CaroleB in New Zealand (to go to her blog click on the madness and mess badge in my right hand sidebar), to make shabby chic type cards using old book covers as a base, I have the books out and need to decide on a theme and what to use, I'll start these properly at the end of next week as we are having a few days away for a rest!!

Hello Maureen,

I really have missed visiting your blog and your seeing your art. I see I have missed much. We have done a bit of new decorating and flooring to this Summer so I can relate to your woes. Retirement certainly has been a stage of life ones needs to adjust too.

Hugs Judy
