For the last 2 years we have talked about getting a log burner in our dining room, the fireplace had already been taken out when we moved into this house but the 'hole' where it had been had been left, complete with the old bricks at the back, the chimney had been plasterboard over and the sides skimmed so that just left a hearth to be built and the chimney opened up, simple eh? my DH works away during the week so everything seems to take longer to get done only having the weekend in which to do DIY, but we have got there and as of last weekend this is what is now in my dining room :) We had logs delivered last weekend too so every day when i've come in from work i have set to work lighting my gorgeous log burner :) and i'm loving it, lol I am now trying to explain to my husband that we NEED to put a sofa in the dining room as there is only me and my DD #3 at home in the week we could sit in the dining room and save on the heating bills, makes perfect sense to me lol. Will keep you posted on how long it takes for him to think it was his idea to have a sofa in the dining room!!! lol.
I have been stitching too this week, no photos though because it is for a Christmas ornament exchange, my Lizzie Kate double flip-its have been put to one side until the ornie is done and posted, i am exactly half way through the LK, hope to finish it before Christmas and will post a photo then, so until next time tara-a-bit x
