I first started this blog due to "popular demand" for me to to share my cooking and quilting results in blog form as it was easier for friends and people who know me to see what I'm up to, especially compared to just an image hosting site. Now I blog because I enjoy sharing what I do and hope that I do in some way inspire people to try new things out as well.
So... the day before yesterday I lied... a bit... as I didn't post a blog yesterday as promised. There are 2 reasons for this - the first reason is that I was at IKEA buying furniture most of the day and by the time I got home I was more dead than alive. The furniture was (amazingly!) delivered the same evening - so fast! The second is because I forgot to take a photo of Wednesday's progress before heading off with the embroidery so I could stitch in the train and bus. The only reason I didn't forget to blog today as well is because my bf kindly reminded me in time to do something about it, so today you get 2 days worth of progress in one photo with the progress, or lack thereof, noted separately.
As you can see it's not all that light in the photo - that's because I took the photo in twilight as I've been a bit busy building said furniture and part of resting my hands from all the hard work also meant no stitching in the breaks I took. I'm probably not going to post tomorrow as I won't have any progress and will see on Sunday if I have anything new to share by then - I want to get the furniture up and in use as fast as I can as then it's done.
