The Big Day

After weeks of planning and waiting we now have the keys and started painting yesterday, you can see the state of excitement Maxine was in from the tin of paint she was using. We were in raptures as we applied the strawberry ice cream coloured paint. True to form Maxine managed to do 3 walls to my 1 (we have very different painting styles).

I hardly slept last night thinking of the mammoth task we had today and couldn't believe it when it took all day to dismantle 2 shelves and put 2 new ones together, if I ever have to assemble another Ikea shelf......
Meanwhile, Maxine was painting a second coat, the streamline machine arrived as well as a large Sirdar order, we couldn't move for the chaos and mess and it was time to pick up the kids and go back to our other lives. But only for a short while after a much needed break we returned and against all expectations have got wool on the shelves.....Things on display........... and the excellent 'MARMALADE' bunting up,LOOK ............................
Needless to say Maxine made it and all the other beautiful knitted and crocheted things on display but did I mention, I put up the shelves?
It was getting late when we decided to call it a day but couldn't resist a peep in from outside. What a day! Tomorrow, our first day of trading, better get some sleep.

  1. OOO! It looks sooo beautiful! Well done! How did the first day go? I wish I could be there rummaging through all that wool.

    All the best for the future.

    Love Fi.
