Alice.........Painting.......and Stitch and Craft

Hello, this week started off with taking my Mum and daughter to see the new Alice in Wonderland film
- Brilliant entertainment from start to finish.
R's favourite characters were Tweddle dum
 and Tweedle Dee (AKA the wonderful Matt Lucas)

whereas it take a lot to beat Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter for me,
(mind you, I must admit the Pirates of the Carribean Johnny is my fav!!)

Enough dreaming..........

The plan this weekend is to decorate R's bedroom.
Like most 7 year old girls, it is a clutter of bit and pieces and more bits.
 Today the worst of it is over - yes clearing the room to be able to paint!
I no longer have a single room upstairs not cluttered up with the contents of said bedroom! At present my craft table is housing a playmobil hospital
and the sewing machine has disappeared from view!

Never mind we must get it finished at the weekend
as next weekend I have a weekend away with a dear friend
 and a trip to the Stitch and craft Show at Olympia on the Saturday - yipee!

If any of you have been - I would welcome your comments! I will of course have the handy plastic at the ready!

  2. Enjoy the show - never been but plan to one day so take lots of pictures for us.

  3. You should see how much clutter a 12 year old girl has...we are also decorating but J wants to move from big room to small one...that would be my art room so TWO rooms to declutter (MUCH recycling & trips to charity shops & tip recently!!) Just arrived home with paint & got curtain material last w'end...looks like a weekend of work for us too!!

  4. hello! THank-you for your lovely comment. Now,about that playmobil... get it under control quick - in my experience, give it a square foot and you've lost the whole house under piles of plastic limbs, creatures and bits of vehicles that never seem to go together! Good luck! t.x

  5. I would love to see the film,Johnny Depp is so fab!
    Hope you have a wonderful time at the show next week!!
    Take care
