Eye Spy.....My work in progress...

How apt is that for a theme?!


Crafting progress is at a nil, but hey the building progress is s-l-o-o-o-o-o-w, but crucially, there is progress. The bricks arrived , wrong ones on the Thursday (and a week late...), wrong ones on the Friday, right ones on the Monday!! So we have a wall!! And they're lovely bricks they match beautifully, much better than the ones I thought we were getting (I won't explain that, you never know who's reading!) So it was actually worth the wait, you see, there's always a positive side!! We have no roof yet, it's raining. Apparently builders go rusty if you leave them out in the rain, and they only cure is to lubricate with a strong dose of PG Tips......
Further progress upstairs, the plasterer is doing his thang in the back bedroom as I type! Oe-er missus!! And the nice gas man just serviced the boiler and it didn't get condemend! Whoa! (Excuse the excitement but it's always a bonus with a boiler that's over 20 years old.) How thrilling is this for a post, all this talk of boilers and bricks, oh, be still my beating heart!!
And just so someone doesn't call for Craftman and Bobbin to come and bust my non-crafting arse on this supposedly craft blog, does wrapping an old yellow t-shirt around an old dusty Ikea lampshade (Darling, it's what all the best lampshades are wearing. T-shirts at a jaunty angle? Why yes, it's all the rage) while saying aloud "I'll stitch that on there, it'll be lovely!" count as crafting? Or does saying "....eventually" under my breath negate it's right to be called a work in progress?! Actually, I'm going to refer to it as a WIMP (work in mental progress) or maybe just plain mental for short.......


Thanks to the lovely Bug and Pop for Eye Spying fun, and to Michelle at Hugo & Elsa for the great theme!

I couldn't envisage the look of said t-shirt around lamp but looking at your picture I can see how gorgeous it is going to be.









eventually ;-)
