Well we are making slow but steady progress on our kitchen renovations :-)
We have had quite a few hiccups along the way . . .
One of my most favourite things in the whole kitchen was my brand spanking new butlers sink (I have coveted one of these for longer than I can remember) -
I came home from work one night to discover we now had water in this part of the house so I could wash the dishes that night ! ! ! How exciting ! ! !
When I had finished washing the dishes in my new sink for the very first time, I pulled the plug only to discover my new sink had all cracked in the bottom ! ! ! I cried. Lots :-(
We now have power back in this part of the house so cooking has resumed . . .
Even though the fridge is in the dining room still . . .
And in the midst of all this chaos and activity, I have managed to find time to do some craft work (truth be told I have been banished from the kitchen area many times this past week . . .)
I found time (& a tiny space on the dining table) to paint some boots onto some dollies legs . . .
finish some lovely bright golly tea-towels . . .
& whip up a horseshoe for a dear friend whose son is getting married in Fiji in a couple of weeks.
While I have had my head down and my tail up . . . I haven't ventured outside very much and so, - when I did take a walk down the garden yesterday, I couldn't believe how autumn had suddenly set in & the colours in the garden . . .

|Love the cottage in the background in the autumn shadows! !|
Wishing you all a great weekend out there friends, will keep you posted as we make progress - (& try to keep our sanity in tact). Many thanks for all your encouraging comments last post.
Love & hugs,
