All packed up and no-where to go . . .

. . . well, not just yet, anyway! The legal bods at the bottom of the chain are being extremely slow, the lady at the top of the chain is having a hissy-fit as she is about to give birth and doesn't know if she is coming or going (cant say I blame her!) and we and two other parties are stuck in the middle, so I am currently just filling time with a few bits and pieces.

Firstly I have taken on my first professional proofreading work for over ten years, for the lovely Amy Winfield who has written her first novel "North", I think we are both wandering around in the dark holding each other's hands at the moment, but hers is by far and away the more skilful part of the process! You can follow her progress by clicking here, and pressing the "like" button.

Secondly, I am going to need a few sets of curtains for the new house, so I am converting this double sided curtain that I made for inside our front door here into a pair of lined curtains for the TV room



and with the left over fabric (that I bought about 3 years ago and never used) I'm making some full length curtains for the snug.



Hopefully in a couple of months time I'll be able to show you them in their (and my) new home.

Sounds very posh Joy - the tv room, the snug. How big is this mansion of yours?

ha, ha, no Chrissy, the TV room is another name for the lounge, and the snug is a little room at the back which will double up as a computer room to start with until we have sorted out and decorated a couple of the bedrooms to have as an office each.

You must be so tired of waiting now Joy. They do say though that the best things come to those who wait.
