Normal service will be resumed ….

by Helen on March 21, 2014

As a child in the 1960′s and 70′s (when we only had three channels!) I remember that from time to time there would be a break in service and the test card would appear ….

I am sure other UK residents of a certain age will remember this happening – usually before your favourite programme – Blue Peter perhaps or Crackerjack?  But I digress…..  Normal blogging service will be resumed very soon indeed, but at the moment I am helping Rosie and Dan decorate their new home.  I am covered in emulsion and wallpaper paste and have decorator’s elbow (is there such a condition?  I’m not sure, but I know my arm is sore and tired after all the rollering and brushing).  

It’s such a pretty little cottage – I know they’ll both be very happy there.  But I must rush now …. I was given a only very short break indeed to come and catch up with Bustle & Sew – but I’m expected back very shortly to carry on painting the woodwork in the bedroom.  

I’ll be back at the weekend with a proper preview of the April magazine (out on Thursday!).  Lots inside, including my Woodland Alphabet Quilt, Running Hare and lots more too.  Meanwhile, here’s a quick peek at the cover for you – it’s very sunshiney and spring-like I think!

See you soon!!

Wow what a beautiful cottage, congratulations to Rosie and Dan on their new home. Oh yes decorators elbow is a well felt condition, LOL I always end up with a sore dead arm, definitely worth the effort though. I’m sure it’s appreciated.
Love the front cover of the magazine, very sun shiny :)

How exciting! A first home is so special….and it certainly will be…and appears to be now…. very charming and cozy.
And speaking of charming, the April magazine looks delightful !

Hi Helen,
The cottage looks lovely. Had forgotten about that TV image but I also recall the ‘Potter’s Wheel’ clip used to fill in long intervals. Bet that’s before your time! Enjoy the wedding planning. Love Lesley xxx

Hmm I was born in the 90s and I remember that black and white circle on TV and we’d always say it was a bird who had hit the electricity cables.
