WOYWW 64

Thank you for all your kind comments on my WOYWW posting last week. I was utterly astonished by the response so, with requests for updates & photos when it is all finished, I thought I'd better join in WOYWW again this week.


Above Left  debris from my last two projects - I usually try to trim the scraps & punch out what can be punched before I start the next project but sometimes I don't manage it. The idea now is to get ahead so that when it comes to putting everything back into the room I do some sorting/decluttering as well. So, that will be some task
.
Above Right my ribbon hanger is nestling amongst some of my husband's few thousand books - wonder what Lord Esher, Tennyson & Ruskin would think? These shelves are next to where I sit so in order to reference (when he's not painting) somebody from his 34 volumes of the Dictionary of National Biography (the blue & white books just visible at the top)  he leans over my head & reaches with his long arms.                          

Below you can see how far the painting has progressed. The windows are completely finished - the masking tape just needs removing. All the walls have been painted over with white to give a neutral base for the two coats of Blossom White, one of which has been applied.

It's a good thing you have an understanding husband- it's quite difficult to reach out behind some hanging ribbons! Good job on the windows! Patsy from

it's coming along nicely and how exciting to have a blank canvas to fill up! the view to your garden is stunning too, but it looks a little steep!

This is going to be one special room. Glad you keep updating us on the progress.

Like you, I like to make a lot of something, then clean up the messes. Punches can be such fun, lifesavers at times, but make the worst messes (grin). Happy belated WOYWW.
