Nearly the end of the week. It seems to have been a very busy week one way and another and yesterday fitted into 'busy' really well.
The big announcement is that I finished the nativity crib set AND delivered it. The recipient was very pleased, thank goodness.
Here it is . . .
Cute, isn't it?
As I was going into school, I took the opportunity to drop off some more of the huge pile of books I have sorted out. It's the school fair next week so, hopefully, they will make some cash for the school.
I sorted out my bedroom curtains. To recap, when my room was decorated last week they had to come down, of course, and they were filthy. This week I washed them and the linings more or less disintegrated to the extent that I really couldn't put them up again. I had to move back into my bedroom on Wednesday as Al was staying overnight so I safety pinned a blanket to the curtain rail as an emergency measure!
Yesterday I took off the tattered linings (cutting them across the top, to save having to unpick and re-sew the tape) and re-stitched the side seams. They are now up again and looking fine from the inside although not so wonderful from the outside, I am sure. At least it is usually dark before I draw them.
Now I am wondering whether it is worth making new, detachable linings for them. It might be, as I think they will look pretty nice in the smallest spare room and there's nothing wrong with the curtains themselves apart from a bit of fading. Ah, well, I have time to make any decision as the new curtains won't arrive until mid to end of January.
Today, first of all I have a downstairs to tidy as the cleaners are coming today and I like to give them a clear run, so to speak. I also want to get back into school to drop off more books. Then I think I will focus on the yellow room again. I haven't touched it this week, what with being away and other stuff, but there's only three weeks to go before I want it sparkling and tidy so I need to get my act together again.
I also have some knitting to get on with
I think it should be another busy day today but nice-busy not exhaustingly-busy.
Have a good one yourself!
