The reason for my recent absence: one final big push to finish the rennovation of my small, sweet home. Take a look around...
The hooks and the beautiful frame bag were both birthday presents (it was my birthday the week before last and I am happy to report that I was thoroughly spoiled).
Of course it is not exactly finished - I have purposefully left it rather bare so that it can grow with me as I find things to add here and there, but the bones are complete and I cannot possibly describe just how happy that makes me. Now that it is done I literally don't want to go out, it is so lovely just to be here and enjoy it.
It also means that now I can get back to spending my time on my beloved embroidery, hurrah!
