Quick update!

There's a lot of pipe work and electric stuff going on at the moment - the doorway going into the snug had to have a major wire running up it, so this.......



became this!


And just look at my curtains - aren't they wonderful? My neighbour and I have been working away over the past couple of days! These are in the main lounge and will be packed away when we start in there - but we hung them to judge length etc. I am well pleased.



 

Back to more sorting now, the house is upside down but it is to be expected! It is very cold outside so I am quite happy to potter and sort here in the kitchen where the Aga is nice and warm. Jon is draining various radiators/tanks etc etc so the rest of the house is cold!

Watch this space!

  2. Thanks Pat - the kit for the curtains was only £40 and will do an 8' patio door (as in pic) a 5' patio door and a 7' window - excellent value eh? Yes it is good being married to such a handy chap - he has saved us hundreds! Dxx

  3. oooh, you're getting on well. Lovely curtains - I didn't know you could get a kit to do giant eyelets like that - I had an eyelet punch years ago - but it was for making shoe-lace size holes. Have a good weekend - hope you don't freeze! Abby x

  9. As long as you can cook a meal, have a wash, and sleep somewhere comfortable then it's OK.
    Whoever said that obviously never had any renovation work done!
    Remember to tidy up after yourself (he he he).

  15. Your curtainly are lovely, you've done a good job with them. I do like the eyelets, so much less faffy than hooks.

  17. Love the curtains and the fittings. I only recently saw some with the pole actually going through the material instead of having all those heavy rings. I'm trying to persuade hubs that we need a change.
