I had a pretty quiet weekend on the face of it, but I achieved two things in the grand doing-up-the-new-abode scheme.
1. I scraped off the residual bits of lining paper from the vinyl wall-paper I ripped off six months ago and washed down the bare plaster wall with sugar soap in the hope that that will remove the vast majority of any residual wall-paper glue that remains there.
2. I calculated the surface areas to be painted in each room - this takes quite some time, what with windows and doors and irregular shaped hallways. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the Dulux figures on how far 4 litres of paint will go. I won't have to buy as much as I thought might be the case.
I'm working on...
... quilting the Japanese Charm Square Wall Hanging.
... beginning the piecing on a new quilt project.
... learning to knit socks.
... using up Olympic knitting leftover yarn.
... and knit-along-ing on my Silk Garden Snake.
