Finally I have mastered the art of uploading pictures. Helllllllllllo 21st Century.

Once upon a time this was an archway between the sitting and dining rooms……


…until Mr Stitches rediscovered his wall building mojo (initially found in what was the old master bedroom, but is now a study and the ‘babies’ room).

And this is the lovely navy wall…..see – I wasn’t joking. But things are progressing and now we are at the painting stage, thus….

Note the new coving – Mr Stitches is also becoming a dab hand at cutting splendid mitred corners.


Only 37 days to go and all this will be done. Phew!
