Hello Everyone :)

How are you all today???

I have quite a bit of news to convey in this post, so lets get cracking :)

I have been contacted by Lets Knit magazine, and they want to do a small feature on my blog, with some piccies!!! Wow, is’nt that exciting!!! So I said yes, that would be wonderful, and I am to be featured in the May issue, which will be out in April :)

John and I have been so busy decorating this past week, we have put the paper on our fireplace wall, put our newly painted fireplace back on the wall, papered one wall in our bedroom, and completely re-arranged our bedroom too, phew!!! That was hard work!!! Here are some before photos for you, which I took a while ago….

And here are the new ones, I love this wallpaper :)

I am so happy with our wallpaper, I love it so much, I just cant stop looking at it, lol :) Our home is becoming a floral haven, I love it :)

I have crocheted a few more tea cosies,

I hope you like them :)

Okey dokey, I am going to watch Pride and Predjudice now, the Colin Firth one, and crochet, because I have done all my housework, changed the bedding ( I love nice clean sheets night!! ), done the washing and had a nice bath, so I am all done for the day :)

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)

Thank you so much for reading my blog and leaving your lovely comments :)

Take care everyone, bye for now :) :) :) :)
