I'm still here!

Hello! First of all, I must apologise for my lack of posts recently. I have been extremely bad at keeping up with blogging. Lots of things have been happening around here since I last posted, the shop has been updated with lots of lovely new items. I have bought even more pieces that need to be photographed and listed before they start taking over my house.



 
I have finally been cracking on with my vintage sheet quilt. I got a bit fed up with it a while ago because it hadn't quite turned out as I had expected. I've had a bit of a rethink and I'm back at it, here is a bit of a sneak preview...
 
 
As you can see, I have also been getting to grips with the A Beautiful Mess iPhone application. I think it's really nice for adding a little something extra to your instagram pictures.
 
At chez Radford we have made a lot of progress on the bathroom, it's finally (FINALLY!) coming together and looking good. I really enjoy seeing what I had pictured in my mind in it's physical form. I will share some before and after photographs as soon as I have finished accessorising.
 
We have also started work in the garden. I have never before had a garden of my own and it's a bit overwhelming, but I have become rather adept with a pair of loppers recently. Here I am in action...
 
"I have become the destroyer of plants"
 
You can almost see the plants quivering in fear. The eventual plan is to have a decked area with chairs and a table and a firepit so we are just clearing some space at the moment. Here are some of the lovely plants that I haven't chopped down...


 
 
 And finally, my very special friend's birthday is coming up so I wanted to get started on a quilt as a gift. May, if you are reading this, look away now!
 
 I have ordered the rather wonderful Back to Black bundle from M is for Make. I have visions of half square triangles arranged in a chevron pattern, or maybe even pinwheels. Jade green polka dot fabric for the backing and then something lovely and bright for the binding. Hurry up and arrive please!
