I'm still stripping down the clock. The side panels had this ancient paper stuck on, so I've soaked it off and will varnish the whole of the outside once it's clean.
Not sure what to do about the innards - I had a telephone quote of £230, so long as it was straightforward (aargghhhhhh!!!!!!) so I might attempt to clean it up myself (without removing parts) and see what happens. DH still reckons I'm cracked, but I just want to give it some TLC.
Meantime, Rosie continues to find interesting places to snooze.
I had to wake her from here, as it was a long way to fall!!
On the crafting front, the cardi is finished (thank goodness) and will go to it's new home today.
I've started using some more of the mohair to make another scarf as a Christmas gift. I do like this pattern - it's simple and very quick.
Sorry - all that was cheating, as I wrote it two weeks ago, before setting out for Scotland on holiday. I just haven't got back into the swing of things since returning at the weekend. Most of the washing is done, and Mum is back safe and sound after her adventures staying with my brother for the fortnight.
My back is against the wall, trying to complete 10 strips of bunting to go to a Ugandan orphanage next week, for fabric painting by the kids with a team from my church.
I always take a project (or three) on holiday, and this year I started a hexie quilt for DD2's Christmas present. It's only costing time, as the fabrics are from my stash. I'll just have to buy a background one to link them all together.
Please excuse the abrupt end to this post - otherwise I'll miss yet another week of WOYWW (click button on the side bar to go visit Julia to see what I'm waffling about).
I will get my act together this week, and be ready for next Wednesday - promise.
Love to you all, and I'll leave you with my idea of a drink by the pool (taken from the bench outside the caravan we stay in - my fave part of the world - after home, that is!)
