Rambling

I finally got around to finishing my bedroom today. We are really lucky to have a large bedroom. This still didn't stop me using poor Ella's room as our dressing room. Before Ella was born we bought huge fitted wardrobes for one entire length of her room. I don't know what I was thinking really, I've put it down to 'being pregnant' lol.



I love waking up to this view....



My French antique chairs are one of my favourite things, but unfortunately they are commonly used as a dumping ground for clothes.



Well this week has just flown by, it's been very busy yet very unproductive. I have now come to the conclusion that I need a new sowing machine (so I can make all those cushion covers for my day bed.) This is by far a simple task, I thought to myself.. right I want one that I can do embroidery with, plus it needs be able to over lock seams. I have so many ideas of things I want to create but my lovely old singer sowing machine is starting to protest. The last time I used it, it got completely stuck and I had to wait until Jeremy came home to fix it. If anyone can offer some advice of which model/brand to by it would be really appreciated. Not too expensive though. I thought I had found one the other day, only to discover the price £699.99, and this was one of the cheaper models, If I was going to pay that much I would want to be able to tell it what I needed to do, then leave it to get on and do it, ah if only.



You have probably noticed that I swap from one thing to another when I'm writing, I have come to realise that this is just the way my brain works. Jeremy is constantly amazed at the random things I come out with, I then have to explain my thought process and how it lead to the comment I made, to which I always get a puzzled look, I think it must be a female thing. If I say to Jeremy what are you thinking about, he will often say nothing, and he really does mean nothing. I cant imagine being able to sit and not have a list of to do, make, decorate etc going on. I often have my best creative spurts when I'm relaxing or just going to sleep. I hope I'm not the only one?

I have just started writing a new 'list', after much panic realising that we have only two weeks until we go on our family camping holiday. I have started the tedious task of writing down all the things we need. If the weather carries on as it is at the moment. We will need full water proofs and a blow up dingy, just in case we get washed away. The place that we got to in Norfolk is beautiful, Ella just loves it there and they have some beautiful beaches. The car boots are amazing too! just full of old linen, vintage pottery and unusual bits... I cant wait. Back to basics, I loved this kind of holiday as a child so was keen for Ella to experience it also ;)

Well I need to get back to my list now... x Faye

HI, I just bought a Janome "decor" sewing machine. It is not the cheapest sewing machine but ALOT less than the one you mentioned! It has lots of great things you can do with it but most of all, its easy to use, smooth running, quiet etc. I love it! there is a pic of it on my blog, the post before the most recent one. I have a lovely old chair in my room too and Im just the same as you, it keeps ending up with a pile of clothes or a quilt on it!
