so many comments

Hi All
wow so many comments, you all want to win, I have found you something  for the Give a Way, I am going to keep it as a surprise, so many of you liked the idea of not knowing what they could win, so you will all have to wait till the winner shows her prize. I know its a bit cruel, but adds to the fun I think.

In my mini world, I have done, wait for it -------------nothing, yes thats right nothing, the last 2 days I have been trying to get my items painted for my bathroom, the decorator is coming Sunday so I want them ready so they can be put on the walls, It is begining to look really good, cannot wait to show you pics.
My pine wall unit is the last thing to shabby chic, it has one more coat of paint to go then I can start to distress it.

I am undecided what to do about the shower curtain, my shower is over my bath and needs a double curtain to go round the bath, I have looked at the curtains that are availiable and have found nothing I like, I have found a pattern for making one so I may have to dust off the sewing maching and make my own.

well thats all for now, everyday life takes over today, you know the sort of thing, cleaning, washing, shopping, maybe I will be able to sneak a bit of minis in later

when did that happen and a give a Way

Hi All

when did that happen, I now have 190 followers, when I started this blog I never thought I would get 1 follower let alone 190, thank you to those who are new to my blog, I hope you are enjoying what you see and read.

I think I will have to do a give a way myself, so while I am sorting out something to give you, why not drop me a comment, the rules of the give a way are
1. be a follower of this blog
2. leave a comment
3. if possible put a link on your blog for me.
 Date of the draw will be ----------------------------------1st December, so hopefully you will get the prize before Christmas,
Good Luck

Sorry did not mean to mention Christmas, but it is creeping nearer, this year I have decided to have a quiet Christmas and stay at home, they can come to me. I have already got some of the presents, my sons who always struggle to know what to get my mum and dad, when I said what I had got them, ( cannot tell or show you as they read this) they both said can we come in with you, said yes, I had spent more than I meant to so their contribution will help, I promise to put on a photo after Christmas to show you what their present is, the only hint I can give you is it came from America and is something to do with miniatures.

well I am off now to sort out the Give a Way,

pleased with this

Morning All

yes I am pleased, my bed set is coming on really well, I have used a sage green paint for the bed, trimmed with gold and I also added padding to the ends using the same material I used for the covers.

I am off to my dolls house club today, we mainly talk a lot, sometimes we even get some work done,

so here is the picture of the bed set so far

new work

Hi All

Yes i finally got some minis done, I decided to get on and finish work I had already started before starting anything new, I am desperate to start on my gypsy caravan,

I have been working on a nursery set, I finished the cot and cradle, as usual made them shabby chic, I am making a mobile to go on the cot, which is gluing as we speak, so today will be finishing that.

I also varnished my bathroom cabinets, they are looking good, I am now working on the pine wall unit, hopefully will get that painted today. My bathroom is coming on, we are at the painting stage, that should be done this weekend, I am trying to work out what kind of window covering I want, the way the shower is positioned it looks like I will have to have a blind, will wait till its all finished, to see what I think.

As for me, I am getting about much easier and do not seem to get as breathless as before, I am on new medication and that appears to be having an effect, I am ok as long as I take life at a slower pace and learn to listen to my body and rest when I need to. easier said than done.

well on to photos of work so far

I fell in love with this lovely material and had to use it, its a shame the photo does not do it justice, I have more to do and I am making a bed for it to go on.

Quiet week, Monday Give a ways

Morning All

Its been a quiet week, I have not done a lot on my minis, just a bit of sewing, will have photos to show you tomorrow.
I have been resting, my bloods are now back to normal levels, so I can now get back to doing things.

An update on my bathroom, its not finished, the wood panelling is in place and painted, there is not a lot to do, just a bit more painting, hopefully finished by the weekend.

Well I am off to see if I can find you some give a ways for you to enter,
