  1. I was waiting for your weekly challenge – I have cleaned out bathroom drawers/cupboard thank you, cleaned windows well 2 rooms anyway. Will I ever catch up on my sewing, probably not as I have several things on the go as well as baby knitting for the local hospital. Thanks Yvonne for your challenge list. … Denise

    • Hi Denise

      It sounds as though you have done more than me! I certainly have not got to the kitchen windows yet. At least at this time of the year it is dark when I leave and dark when I get home from work so I don’t really get to see them. I am ploughing through the sewing for the girls and will post some photos once all is finished. That does not account for the mess that is my sewing room. Still lots more projects to do but I am determined to finish the works in progress. I am pleased that you are finding some inspiration from the blog. Hopefully, we can all continue to support each other.
