A busy few days baking and making!!

We’ve been in the throes of Christmas baking here getting cake baked and frozen for when we have visitors,

making pastry

and now mince pies

and so the wild birds don’t feel forgotten we have made them some seed decorations

for a tree near the patio doors so we can watch them from the lounge!

These pictures portray a lovely sense of domestic bliss!!! Ha ha!!! What they fail to show you is the flour covered spaniel, the flour covered floor, the cake mix in Sir’s ear and up his nostril!! The fact that whilst making jumbly cakes he got hold of and ate a sugar cube!!! All totally fab though….. and I’m totally thankful he didn’t try to eat the bird seed!!! Apart from the dog that shook and sent a cloud of flour over the kitchen!! Oh poo I’ll have to dust!!!

Farm renovation updates!!!

We have bedroom curtains!!! I made them!!!! With a lot of cutting out help from my lovely neighbour, without whom they would not be so well pattern matched!!! They need hemming but I’ve put them up to drop first!! Love them!!!!

I have cut out the fabric for the hall curtains!!! Pattern matched now I know how/that I need to/what that means!! Lol excuse the wobbly photo rushing again!!! But my hallway is the perfect width to cut out from a bolt of fabric!!! 

Downstairs big changes!!!! It’s practically decorated and we have a home emerging from the building site!!!



It’s all coming together!!!

Soon we will be onto fixtures fittings and finishing off the bathrooms upstairs and more doors and handles!!!!
