I'm having holidays from the start of next week (for three glorious weeks) which means I'm counting down the days until my release. Holidays are kind of like getting temporary parole. I'm planning to be a lady of leisure, get some tradies round to quote on jobs that need doing round the house, read books, cook and bake, eat chocolate and sew a lot.
Meantime, since New Year I've been in my happy place, making minor adjustments and decor changes around Maison Pyjamas.
I convinced Mr. P that he could make a 44cm x 44 cm Ikea shelf unit fit into our very thin very tall 46cm x 46 cm laundry cupboard. (even if the door space was only 42cm wide) The new shelves are a much better use of space.
To his credit my amazingly talented husband put this together inside of the cupboard because that was the only way it was going to ultimately fit. Imagine if you will a man with hands the size of footballs trying to put together a shelf unit inside a cupboard. Mr. P loves a challenge and he totally rocked this one.
I finally got a shadow box to put some of our holiday mementos in. Now I just have to hang it on a wall somewhere...
My Christmas present from Mr. P was this fabulous egg chair (He even went to the trouble of wrapping it which took about 15 metres of Christmas paper)
But it was missing something...so I made some cushions. First finish for 2014 and only 7 days into the year! Can totally see myself curled up in this rocking gently while holding a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other or perhaps just cocktails in each hand. Whatever.
And Ive been no slouch in the WIP arse kicking stakes either ...lots of postage stamp block progress happening here this week, with a vague thought that I may be able to make some progress on the long neglected triangle quilt while I'm on holidays too.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
