James' Blanket Mark 2...

Managed a couple of hours each afternoon this week after our mornings tiling and James wanted the small triangles filled in...l said it would be too fiddly, so made a Mark 2 Blanket with a 
plain navy band..hope he likes this one
Been trying to finish the bathroom tiling stage one any row of tiles ceiling to floor to go on
 and grout them all, paint the boxed in pipe for now
See how the tiles seem to disappear behind the basin and loo, when they are grouted.? lol
Definitely decided to fill the wall  inset with a mirror that fills the space and not just leave the smaller mirror
But that will wait too, more pressing jobs to do next week

Like tidying up the damage down stairs...just in time for Phil's sisters visit.....a long weekend at the end of the month
Watching a home make-over programme late last night we saw the staircase we will do, an idea we had already considered but seeing it o the TV made our minds up and they had used the same doors we plan on using too.....they looked great so although we have had a step back with the waterfall lol,
we can see a light at the end of the tunnel as far as finishing Bakewell
That's a good feeling

Thank you so much for all the kind thoughts over the last week...cheered us up a lot
Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone
Hugs to all


  1. Love the blanket and pillow cover!

  2. Love, love, love to see that touch of black. Aren't these decision just hard to make. So much easier picking out a ball of yarn.

  3. Suz, your boys are lucky to have a wonderful Mom like you. The blanket is going to be great and if it isn't appreciated you can send it to me.
    Have a great day,

  4. He's probably worried that the holes might let in a draught. Pleased that everything has dried out now. Is there muchdamage to repair?
