not a mini post

Hi All

I am continuing to paint the shop, I am using primer first, this helps to form a base for painting, I  still have to decide what colour,style,paint or wallpaper to use to  decorate the shop.

The ground floor,I do know I  want it to look very opulent and fancy, I am searching  the internet, especially Pinterest, to give me ideas.

This is one of the hardest for me, I do have a look in my mind, but find it hard to put it down on paper.

I always have to be busy, even if I am sitting down, I will be knitting or doing something, so I thought I would show you what I am doing while I wait for the paint to dry.

I am making a double quilt in a seaside theme. I subscribed to a magazine over a year ago, and every couple of months, I get material, projects and the quilt pattern, I decided to make this, I have done small quilting projects but have never attempted anything this big.
so this is how far I have got with this project. have a look

Good morning

Hi All

Well I am getting over my shock of finding my thyroid does not work as well as it should, and I have started my tablets. The one good thing about it,it explains why I am putting on weight, so  hopefully now my weight will start to drop off.

This week I will be continuing to paint the shop, so tedious, while I am waiting for all that to dry, I am getting on with my other project,its a double patchwork quilt. Its got a seaside theme, I have been doing it for over a year, Its a magazine that every 3 months you get the material and pattern plus other items you can make.

It would properly been cheaper to design and make my own,but i was looking for a long time project and this came up. It does teach you other things, like fancy embroidery stitches, and it has some great recycling ideas.

Well that's my week sorted, catch up with you all soon
