Hello again
I have'nt blogged for a few days i havent been very well really run down i think with no energy but i thought i should blog today before you all loose interest. So here are some pictures of where im at just now this house was bought as a kit and has taken me six years already so i think i should try and finish it soon i still need to add trim  to frame all the rooms nicely... Paul is working on the front facade and altering the
 roof for me turning it into a mansard rather than the apex it was originaly so hopefuly it will turn out well. The first picture shows the attic rooms in a complete shambles then we move down to the bathroom and bedroom the maid is working hard cleaning out the bath after her ladyship this morning  there is no plumbing so the bath has to be emptied out manually....oh how lucky we are these days to have the humble plug hole hahaha... Lucy moorecroft has been a busy lady shopping for hats and new parasols etc.. the goods have been left ready in the bedroom where she can try them all yet again later....
                                             The carpet here is stitched using a pattern from Janet Grangers book its on 14count canvas and is the wrong scale but i enjoyed stitching it and really wanted to show it n this room i do stitch on finer canvas but my eyes are not always willing hahaha... There are a selection of lovely hatboxes from Ira Caterina and Allison thanks ladies there is also a box of pictures and soaps from Caterina on the chair i love them .
                                             Amelia moorecroft is playing with her beloved Dogs the black Labrador was a commision from Pearl Hudson   his name is Duke after my mothers gorgeous furbaby now passed on there is a picture on the wall by Ellie de lacey also in his likeness.
                            Lydia sits with her faithfull cat Sebastian whilst father greets Amelia and the dogs.
                                Mother is seeing that everything looks right and proper with the tea.
                                           So far im not sure about this room its supposed to be the entrance hall but fathers desk is also here im hoping Paul will make me a basement to add underneath the house i can then add a Kitchen and scullery......OHHH PAUL.......HAHAHA....!!
