We had a storm here last night. The dog hated it, but I plucked up the courage to watch it for a little while at the window and it was quite amazing.
I didn't stay too long though as I'm a bit uncomfy around them, probably due to my mum being struck by lightning. She was on the phone in her bedroom, near a window and the lightning actually knocked the phone out into the hallway! Scary!!
Anyway, the point of mentioning the storm was to say while it was going on, I took the opportunity to do a little more stitching and so have a small update to show.
I've made a start on the top border, but I still have two more little flower type motifs to put at the bottom as well as the rest of the border and the two hearts I decided to add, to sew on.
This would actually be quite a quick stitch if you were able to sit at it for awhile and weren't using metallics! LOL.
No news with Steve's job but they did have something awful happen. There was a serious accident on Thursday and one of the men has lost his leg below the knee. Everyone's upset, so you can imagine things are not good. Now all the investigations start. :(
I've been thinking about painting the kitchen. I feel like we really need a lift and the kitchen could do with brightening up, so I'm musing on the idea. I don't think it would cost alot. We already have some paint, so I don't need to get much.
I'm thinking of a nice relaxing green to compliment all the creams and orangy/brown shades. I'm thinking of green on the cupboard doors as well. Keeping the border cream and adding green to the middle panel. Or I could leave the middle cream and paint the borders. I think I prefer the idea of painting the middle at the moment though. Any thoughts?
Wall cupboards to show what I mean:
I'm thinking about it anyhow...
Have a good weekend everyone and take care!
