This was the main
After the roadkill incident I did finally pull it all together. I did the front panel of the cushion this morning but the colours look awful on the photo. In real life they are much more tasteful and subdued!! Honest!!
It is now all finished apart from buttons and stuffing. By the time I had got this and two other cushion covers finished today the light had gone. Hopefully I'll post some pics tomorrow.
Another thing that is finished - in fact was finished on Friday - is our new roof!!!
Mr Rooferman worked incredibly hard through sun, gale force wind and driving rain. He carried 3.5 tons of roofing tile up there all by himself and has done a beautiful job.
Moogsdad spent the weekend laying boards on the loft floor. This left me to keep the little monkeys entertained which explains my absence from the Land of Blog!!
Talking of monkeys you really should pop over to Monkee Maker's blog (see how I did that super smooth segue?!) as she has a fantastic raffle going on to raise much needed funds for a very brave little girl's medical treatment.
Talking of prizes (oh maaaaaaaan I'm good!!!!!!!!!) I've received a lovely award from Marit today - thank you very much Marit and thanks for all the lovely, blush-making things you said about me :)
All of you lovely people out there in Blogland make my day - every day and I would like to pass this on to all of you - go on you know you want it!!!!!!
If it weren't for blogging I'd be forced to do housework or watch daytime TV so it really is a vital lifeline for me - ha haaaaaaa! As it is I have found a place where genuinely friendly, kind and generous folk inspire and uplift me - something I just don't get from Cash in the Attic and it's ilk.
Before I disappear to Tesco to buy hyper cheap mass produced pillows and pancake ingredients for tomorrow I should tell you that Mrs Locket and I have posted our next challenge over here. Please join in!!!
