  • I too managed to get on the @textileexpress 🚂 with @amilliondresses and @roisinmuldoon and bought some of that beautiful retro cotton/linen mix ex Ralph Lauren fabric before it sold out,  BUT I also couldn't resist buying some 'monsieur lobster' jersey 😍 he's wearing a little Breton tshirt guys!!! 🇫🇷 . Mr pinchy top in the works!

  • Are you going to be a @newcrafthouse weekend offender and join their party? 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 Dress is ready, hair has 90% less plaster dust in it and I'm looking forward to seeing all the crew tomorrow night. Whoop! Let the sun shine!.

  • If Kirstie and Phil could see the house now, they would probably tell us to run a mile. BUT ELECTRICS ARE IN! I repeat we now have actual working electric sockets and downlighting in every room. Next up, that fireplace.... send Gin please!.

  • Please, those with old houses, tell me this gets easier? Another layer of the house is revealed. Today we finally got ⚡️ electricity in my sewing studio, which now has 10 plug sockets and cool white LED downlights. Of course there's still away to go as this room will need re plastering etc but all this work might entice Kirstie to come back. 😬 Somedays I feel like applying for love it or list it but not today. Not today 💪🏽✌🏻️I beat you Monday!

  • There were a few things that blew me away @thefestivalofquilts but nothing came close to this beauty. Katherine Jones of @twocatsquilts's bling quilt is the best thing I've ever seen. A whopping 98 x 98inches in size. "Foundation paper pieced from solid fabrics the inspiration for this quilt was a princess cut diamond."
.
It won best in show #quiltcon2017  and I can see why 😍.
