Balmy golden autumnal days have given way to chill and rain here in Northland. Yet still I’m sewing the last dress of summer.
So many unfinished things at the moment. It feels like time is simultaneously held in abeyance and winging it’s way south for the winter.
Obviously at this time of year it becomes all about the knitting and life Chez Stitches is no exception.
These are a work of love and I’m hoping to have them finished by the weekend, when we head off on our holidays.
The decorator has arrived and the first coat of paint to seal the plaster was applied at the weekend. I really need to get my act together as I’ve got to choose and purchase coloured paint before Saturday.
And whilst I’m at it, I’d better get the flooring, as my builder (who, serendipitously, is also my cousin) is finally free to lay the floors, build a dog den under the stairs and fit the new fireplace.
The ground floor will look like home by Christmas. The socks will be done. The dress will be hemmed. And I’ll do my best to get my last fabric sale post up this week.
