So?  You want to know what's on my desk today do you?  Well, there is pretty much nothing but that is really good news because what it actually means is I have managed to get in there to clean the 6" of dust covering every surface in my sewing room......now all I need is a steady flow of customers :-)

I still have dust sheets on the floor to protect the new flooring from the builders dirty boots but the good news is they wont be around for very much longer.  They are doing the second fix with all the skirting boards, door surrounds etc and finishing off the last of the little jobs today and tomorrow and then just plan to come back one day next week to fit our new kitchen french doors and side window panels that should arrive this Friday..........and that really should be the end of all the building work. :-) :-) -) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) 
This little sign has been very patiently for the new door to be hung on and this will be fitted either today or tomorrow.  

So it's short and sweet from me today [just the way Julia likes it].  It's a busy week for me and my darling hubby has taken a few days off to make a start on the very many jobs we have to do once the builders leave....painting, stripping wall paper, fitting new bathrooms and a kitchen to name but a few.  If you leave me a little message to let me know you've called in then I will do my best to return the visit when I can....I must say sorry to those I failed to get to last week but life just got in the way.

I'd be popping round for a nosey if I lived nearer Annie.
Hope it all goes well this week. I'm going raiding Argos for catalogues for next week's workshop then on to the poundshop for Crimbo stuff

Oh Annie, the end is in sight at last for you. Must be feeling pretty tired with all the cleaning and things but also very happy. I am thrilled to bits for you and you never know, one day you might get a very tall visitor knocking on your door with some sewing to be done.
Hugs, Neet xx 17

Your new room looks fantastic, Annie. Well done. Having had builders in for 16 weeks in one of the homes we have lived in.... well, yes, I do understand about brick dust sandwiches, dust sheets on every floor, longing to finish it all. Do enjoy it all when it is finished!
Take care. God bless.

Your sewing room really does look lovely and the sign for the door is the perfect finishing touch. I bet you can't wait for the builders to leave - hope everything stays on schedule for you and you get a good start on all those jobs - it can seem never ending can't it! Have a good week,

It is totally awesome. How you've managed to stay sane thru this has been a great inspiration to me. Your banner is cute. Love the fun colors you have used throughout, I keep thinking "get er done" the holidays are coming.
So ENJOY and next week will be better.
