Picture This!

The conversation went something like this:

Me to OH: 'I have a little job for you. Could you please hang that picture in the bathroom'.

OH to me:  What picture?

Me: The one that's been propped on the back of the bench in the kitchen since we bought it in Malta about 5 years ago!

OH: 'I thought it was meant for the kitchen.'

Me: 'It's a picture of a bathroom. Why would it go in the kitchen?'

OH: 'OK'.

Job done!!
Why wasn't it that easy 5 years ago?

 That gave me the idea to show you some more of what adorns our walls. 

 This lady is in our sitting room, near a corner, with a window to the right across the corner, so it gives the impression she's gazing out of our window too. I love this picture and often wonder, when dusting it, what she's waiting for, or looking at (dusting???..... Well, maybe not THAT often!).

 This is the sight that faces me as I step out of our bedroom!!  It's DS's bedroom door, with the upstairs toilet door to the right. In the middle of the night, in the eerie light from the window, while half asleep, it could give one a bit of a jolt!!

And because this is supposed to be a stitching blog, here's my effort for the Tag Square Bee for July.  It's for Jo from Bearpaw who has a lovely blog here.  She wanted an aqua/red/pink colour scheme so I hope she's happy with this.  When I first laid the pieces out I didn't like it at all, but the next morning it had grown on me and then I loved it after it was all sewn together.  The red fabric with black/white flowers is left over from a dress I made for DD nearly 20 years ago.

OH and I are off for a long weekend in Dorset tomorrow so I'm very much looking forward to 2 days off work! 

Oh... and my friend loved her 'shoe' bag!!

Bye for now

Oh, I really like the colors of your quilt square. You are very creative to be able to put colors together like that. Love the picture of the lady, too! She has a calm soothing look about her. The alien...not so much calm or soothing...but just like a boy! Have a great weekend!

Our pictures are mostly from places we've visited... We're holidaying on the Isle of Purbeck later in August; have fun.

Enjoy your few days away, hope the lovely weather holds.
So glad your friend liked her bag, makes all the hand sewing effort worthwhile.

Love both pictures: the one of the bathroom is very sweet. I'm sure that I would get a fright more than once with the posters of your DD :)
