What a difference a day makes.

Well they seem to be pulling out all the stops here.

They  are certainly making big changes.

 Our fourno is going to look great.

The roof is going to be sheltered from the wind


It won't be long before she looks her best.

It's All Happening Here.


My poor house is naked. The builders came and removed her clothing and left her stripped bare. Soon she will have a whole new look. She is going to look real smart. It has been a long time coming only New doors and windows left to do.
Don't forget you can click on a photo to enlarge it for a better look.
We have dust everywhere and the poor dogs can't run free in the courtyards. To be honest they have been really well behaved and haven't barked much at the builders. They are stuck indoors but having lots more walks.

Will keep you posted on developments.

My New Look Chairs.

Well I did it. My chairs have been revamped.

You will notice that Sam and Rosie had to be in on the action.
I am really pleased with the way they turned out. I didn't have much to cut off. What do you think.

Hot off my sewing machine.

These little beauties
 All six of them. Nothing matching. All lovely colours. Destined to be my new seat covers.

 My dining chairs are due a makeover.

These are sure to brighten things up a bit, em! A lot.
 Thing is now they are made up can I bear to cut them to fit? That is a big question. You will have to wait and see.

 All the materials were just scraps. Off cuts. Bits and Bobs that I have collected from other projects. So they have cost me nothing except my time and effort.

I am really pleased with the way they  turned out.   

My next project was a cover for the dogs bed. Here is the lovely Rosie trying it out for size and comfort.

Perfect she reckons.
Oh! I have also been knitting but I will keep that for next time.
Cya, catch you all soon.
