It was with great sadness yesterday that I heard of the loss of our friend Janet Fairythoughts. It's never easy to put into words what is felt after the loss of a friend but I must say that although I never met Janet she certainly touched my heart through the blogging world and she will be sadly missed. Over a year ago Janet sent me some of her poppy seeds that I had admired on her blog and she will now be thought of fondly every time they bloom in my new garden. I hope her family and friends are comforted by all the lovely words that are being spoken about Janet and this helps to ease this sad time.
So in her memory we must all try to live a little harder and I hope we will all raise a glass to a very special lady. Of course what brought us together was our sharing of our creative spaces thanks to Julia linking us up each and every week and this week is no different.....except that there is very little desk-wise to share with you today...
I've been doing a bit more sorting and organising my sewing room for ease of moving it all at the appropriate time during the building work.
These are the machine embroidery threads now sorted and put together in one of my new drawers.
Of course they wouldn't all fit in together so I have another little box for the shiny ones I tend to use only at Christmas time.
The rest of my show and tell are just a quick few snaps of the building changes since Friday.....
We have a new doorway built between what will be a new front hall and the new bathroom.
The internal skin of blocks have been built to the walls of the new extension and the door and window you can see in this pic.....
...was taken out yesterday and......
......blocked up. So you can see why there is little being done in the sewing room....I'm far too busy making cups of tea for my builders :-)
They will be back again today to hopefully block up the other side of this wall and knock out another door and block that up too.....oooooer it's so exciting cos this is the start of my new sewing room. :-)
Please leave me a little comment to say you've called by and I will do my best to get over to yours as soon as I can. Please join me in raising a glass to Janet and lets be thankful to have had her in our lives.
