the weekend

A busy one this week, which revolved around diy, and included a visit a day to various diy shops. I did manage to make a start on one of Hollys cushions, I am quilting the top (after it taking me a good while in the dusty loft to find the wadding) and keeping it simple by just going around the shapes in the fabric design. I'm quite hopeful for the result, and can't wait to finish it now. Holly and I also spent some time playing in the garden to avoid the house, (see below) and we had lots of fun blowing these bubbles. They are very hard to take pictures of! And Stuart spent his day laying our new oak floor in the hall, it's going to look great when it is finished, we will have a proper floor! The walls are the ones I was getting the wallpaper off the other day, so things are coming along slowly. : )

Fab idea for the cushion - I'd have never thought of that! Your floor is going to look gorgeous - I love wooden floors.

ps the party went really well, although it did last a few hours longer than it was supposed to, thanks to understaffing in Pizza express - but not a single girl forgot her party bag, and they went home wearing their clips - HOORAH!!!
