I currently work 4 days a week in an office building quite close to my home. I'm finding that recently though I'm taking more and more time off work (annual leave - I'm not calling in sick!) to complete my bunting orders. How lovely to be this busy. Our house was bought last December with a view to decorating it all and changing the garden and getting a new kitchen, windows, doors, carpet, lights,bathrooms etc etc its never ending and a day spent in my craft room is an escape from both the office and the decorating. This weekend we are aiming to move the shed to make space for the new shed (which hasn't been chosen yet). I cannot wait for the new shed, sad I know. The thing is, we are going to paint it pale green (with maybe a pale pink window frame but I might be pushing my luck too far with that idea) and I'm going to string some lovely bunting around it, hang a window box and generally turn it into a Wendy House for the lawn mower, tool kit and ladders. A bit extravagant but it'll make the view out of the widow a bit better too....anyone know a way of stopping spiders getting into it?
On a different note, some of my bunting looks really good with my friend Alice's door plaques. Have you seen them yet? There is a link to her site from mine but just in case you haven't seen it here is a link www.flitterbee.co.uk She works with her business partner Gemma and they are both very passionate about their products. I think we may package some of their plaques with my bunting one day, her pink gingham 'sophie' plaque really goes well with my baby pink bunting. What a great gift for a new baby or little girl.
I'll sign off now and get back to the sewing machine. I've got some 'vintage rose' bunting to finish, I'm not sure if thats the final name for it but it seems to suit it. It'll be attached to beige tape to give it a toned down,more grown up and muted look.
Ciao for now, this bizzy bee needs to get sewing again (and stop watching Columbo)
