Mortmain dress|House of hackneyI’ve finished my silk Mortmain dress and worn it too.  So pleased with the House of Hackney silk, especially now my machine is behaving again.  Next project to sew is lined up, the Buchanan.  Although I won’t be cutting it out today, have plans to curl up on the sofa and knit once the dogs have had a walk.

Hackney Empire | House of HackneyYesterday my curtains arrived, so delighted – we have been living with vintage sheets draped over poles, they looked great but these will really help keep the heat in.  Decideding on a wall colour is now easier, have a F & B paint chart and its suprising what colour has sprung out at me.  Have decided on Pitch Blue and Wevet, being braver than before they arrived – I have a wall of patchwork paint samples ranging form Elephants Breath, Dead Salmon to Brassica.  Now I can’t wait to get the decorators in and make our home feel like ours!  Where do you find inspiration before decorating?
