The last 10 days have been busy with work and helping older daughter get her house organised. We have been helping with stripping wall paper and reconstructing old curtains for use until they know what they want in each room. In between there are joyous moments of playing with grandson who is now sitting up on his own and is generally a really happy little baby. He's teething at the moment so a little fractious at times but still gorgeous.
At home my sewing machine has stayed silent but I have been doing some hand stitching. The Christmas stitchery is moving on and is very enjoyable to work on.
I've also started knitting a jacket for grandson. I'm using the same yarn I knitted his red blanket it and I'm also using red. This is a nice easy knit as most of it is in garter stitch.
I finally got round to doing some work on my doll's house. We are redecorating our hall so I decided doing some decoration on the house would help move it forward. I started painting the interior of the basement. I took it to pieces to paint ( it has groves that help hold it together) Once completed I will be gluing it together. The basement will house the kitchen and the sewing room. If I can't have one in real life I'll have one in the doll's house. The primrose yellow is the sewing room walls and the kitchen is a light grey. Once dry the painting marks disappear.
On Friday my friend and colleague, Michelle, bought a bracelet she had made from her bead collection. I'm not sure I've got the patience to do beading as some of them are just so small. The photo doesn't show the little white beads very well. They make a pleasing diamond around the green beads.
