While I beavered working away on my trusty laptop, my No.1 son came to the house to lay down a new floor in my bedroom and study. I took advantage of the New Year sales and purchased the new flooring at a 40% reduction (as you know I always like a bargain). Of course new flooring involved moving beds, furniture etc etc which is a bit of a pain. The bedroom floor is finished and the study will be completed tomorrow (a nice new year present for me) but very much needed as the old carpets had seen better days over the past 10 years or so.
Lunchtime my D Mike and I popped out to the picture framer to get my embroidered pictures framed. I am still trying to get over the cost of the new frames £64 for the two, but from what I could see when we laid the mount and sample frame over the pictures, it will make the pictures look good. I have to wait until the 11th until they will be ready, but I hope it will be worth the money.
My thoughts are now heading towards a birthday outfit for the weekend after next. My D Mike is taking me to our favorite hotel and I would like something new to wear. I am trying to be a little practical in my thoughts and make something that goes with an item I made recently.
You may recall my green jacket McCalls 6441, when I purchased this fabric, I also bought some beautiful silk fabric that complimented this fabric perfectly from the same vendor. I am thinking about making perhaps a blouse and either navy, black or grey trousers or a skirt to make up the outfit.
