NEARLY THERE.......



HEY! GUESS WHAT? I'M NEARLY DONE! 


I'VE JUST FINISHED SEWING IN THE ENDS. NOW I NEED TO MAKE A DECISION ON THE BORDER. 

WATCH THIS SPACE.........THERE MAY BE A 'TA-DA!' MOMENT ON SUNDAY!

I've been pretty much stuck in the house since Monday, which is why progress has suddenly speeded up.  It's half-term, but we still have lots going on in the kitchen; sadly, none of it involves cooking up yummy meals on our yummy new hob yet. Today, it's the turn of the flooring department. By this evening there will be a beautiful slate Amtico floor in place. Tomorrow, it's place is filled by the granite worktop fitters; rescheduled from Friday! Then Friday, the kitchen fitter is back to finish off. 

What's that I hear you cry, 'Hooray! It's finished'. Well no, sadly it's not as there is quite a bit of redecorating still to go all next week and into the following one too. 

BUT, we're getting there; slowly but surely and it is starting to look really lovely. I'm not going to worry about curtains and blinds until everything else is done, so that I am making the right choice. Thanks for all your thoughts and comments on the choices last week. I also have number two as my favourite at present, but that's not to say I won't find some more lovelies to consider. 

I'll see you on Sunday, with a fantabulous finished blanket to show you...... hopefully!

Your blanket is looking great! I bet having this to think about is a welcome distraction from all the building work. Or maybe that's just me! I really don't like all the disruption of renovating. Good luck with the border, and I hope you kitchen is usable really soon. :)

Sewing in the ends is an awful job, has to be done though and means you're almost there. We've had an Amtico floor in our kitchen for over 20 years, still looks great, good choice.
