The kitschen woke to a festive feeling in the air yesterday - bunting and lanterns everywhere!
There was as much icing on the school shirt as on the cake - oops!
Birthday shortbread was baked - the perfect Autumnal treat,And my man and boy made it home early together after work and school so that they could enjoy their favourite birthday tea! Some Englishmen never seem to grow out of bangers, mash, peas and gravy! School refectory food!
All topped off with a cuddle by the stove before bedtime. Happy birthday Hubby.x
And time for a chair update! I started top-stitching the scrim before half term and the extra week off means there seems to be little progress!
But I must admit I found it very hard going and I am quite proud of the neat roll all the way around the seat and back! The dips were evened out with a type of cotton felt, then another flat layer of felt followed by the callico - I had just started to tack the callico down when another class came to a swift close!
I hope to get the seat and back calico covers finished next week and finally make a start on attaching the top fabric... might I be in danger of finishing before Christmas?!
It's that word again! Well, we have a rule. No Christmas in the house until Hubby's birthday week is over. So, this Sunday the beautiful boy is planning a Christmas cupboard raid... and I really must focus on making festive goodies for a Christmas Fair in just three weeks time! YIKES! I need to eat fruit cake and drink Egg Nog to get in the mood!
Hope you're all enjoying a happy week. t.x
