We Have Been Busy

Seems like ages since I last posted, but we have been busy decorating.  We started doing this room months ago, then had a break from it, it's been a long hard slog but I think it's been worth it.

From this:-


When we removed the old window we found a gap underneath it, the rain had been blowing under and into the wall, when we took the old wall boards off the plaster just fell off the wall.....we were not happy bunnies...



We then removed the old panelling and replaced with insulated panels to help keep the heat in, and to cover the wall where the old fire place had been removed - it had been plastered up - badly!!


New window in and new wall panels.



After all the hard work we now have.....


We had to cover the old hearth as there was nothing we could do to rescue it. so from this...


to this...




The doors had plain glass finger plates on and I was going to throw them away and buy new ones, then I decided to try putting fabric behind to see how they looked - pretty good I think and saved us some money.




We have to walk through this room to get to our bedroom, this is found very often in French houses, we can't use it as a bedroom so it is now our dressing room.....posh or what LOL.



A look to melt your heart.....

Patisserie.....

Remember this


This is a picture of part of my birthday parcel from my lovely friend Diane from Sideroad Stitcher 
 see that little charm pack of Patisserie, well here is what I made with it.




This little quilt is going to be a wall hanging, the pattern is called Fiona and it's from the book 3 Times the Charm by Me & My Sister Designs.  

One of the things I love is one of the squares is part of an old map of France and shows Limousin where I live!!!!


How good is that!


Have a good weekend.

Hugs xx
