Latest updates at sewing by Annie's...

 When the plasters were taken off the true damage could be seen on my poor hubby's fingers.  Ouch!  Both finger ends have now gone very bruised and swollen.  I think he was very lucky to have had his protective gloves on at the time.

My sewing room floor was like this on Saturday morning.  The carpet was old, worn and dark maroon and made my room look shabby.

The carpet in our living room, up the stairs and the landing was a dark kingfisher blue.


All the old carpets have now been stripped out and new underlay was put down in my sewing room....Yes girls, I really can say I am on cloud nine now when I'm in my sewing room  :-)


Here is the first sight of my new carpets  :-)  My sewing room looks so much bigger now with the lighter carpet.  I love it.  My job for today is to put all my storage boxes and cupboards back and ready for work tomorrow  :-)  I'm so excited.

 For those that enjoy the posh frocks here is a quick update of what we were doing yesterday morning.  We had an appointment at a Wedding dress shop in Wellington and spent over an hour trying on yet more gorgeous dresses  :-)  Lots more ooing and awing but don't think we have still found THE one.  :-) [any excuse for another shopping trip!].

Poor thing. Lots of TLC is needed.
The carpet looks great and does make the room look bigger. I'm sure it'll inspire you to have a clear out and tidy up in your work room too ;)

ooo bloody ell that looks sore!!! Ouch ouch ouch! Have you ever tired Comfrey Cream? You can only get it from health shops normally but it great for bruising & its a natual antibiotic! I used it when I decided to sew my finger in an industrial sewing machine!! I know, it was awful! It worked really well! the cream, alas not my finger so good anymore!! :))Great card toppers you have made!

Ouch indeed! Love the new carpet and I'm thinking the 3rd dress is my favorite, though it's difficult to tell from just a photo :D.


Karen said...
