This is Not a Catch-up!

April 13, 2018

woodland-road-falling-leaf-natural-38537.jpegIt has been quite a long time since I blogged last, and I have been saying over and over that I must get back into it, but, somehow, it never happens.
Well, here I am…don’t expect anything of interest, this is just a random post of randomness…what else did you expect from a madwoman?!!

Where to begin? How about the weather?  Yes, the weather is a good place to start…it’s cold, and dismal, and this fog has been hanging around for most of the week…it can go do one!

Next…I seem to be hopping from one project to the next, at the moment.  First I was making a mock-up for the Simplicity steampunk coat, then doing a bit of embroidery practice, followed by some more work on my novel, now I have picked up one of my unfinished sunbonnets, and carrying on with that.  I should be clearing stuff out of the living-room so we can order out new sofas!

A trip to Hobbycraft, last Wednesday, when it opened…bought a few bits, then decided to have a look in another store.  DFS was the store chosen…wandered around loving the most expensive sofas, until we both actually liked the same one!  The weird thing was…these were actually in our price range! So now we have to clear the living-room, and get rid of the old sofa first…and order the new sofas withing the next couple of weeks, while they are still half price!

What else?  I have washed lots of fabric…I must now go and iron that fabric, and get on with some boring stuff, like washing-up…TTFN.

    Oh, a woman of kindred spirit. I too was motivated to muck out the sitting room recently. Himself says ‘Oh God, who’s coming ?’ whenever the hoover sees light of day . FAR more interesting things to do, like watch the fritillaries coming out in the garden, or research my hat collection…that’s endless because I WILL keep buying. There’s a nice recent aquisition in my more on sunbonnets piece, in historyonyourhead.com. A most unusual design, with wires going round and round .. The collection now numbers over 1100 …I may need to live in a tent in the garden soon.!
    Keep up the good work. C.

      Wow! How many?! It’s strange, because I love hats and headgear, but don’t feel the temptation to collect, apart from sunbonnets. They would definitely take up less room than the Victorian capes, and drawers that I do collect!

      Clearing out clutter is so…difficult! Why? Why can’t I just say that I don’t need that, and just dispose of it…gone…finished! 😩
