Quiet Weekend…..

Just a quiet weekend in with migraine 😦 Seems I have been getting them quite frequently and it lasted all through the weekend….ugh!!

Apart from that, I spent the weekend looking and deciding upon curtains. I bought five sets just before the weekend…yes five and so have narrowed it down to just three sets, plain, stripey and patterned.


Then we narrowed it down to two….the stripey and patterned and because you’ve all been following the progress of my kitchen/diner, I ask you all if I’ve made the right choice? You think so? Gilbey thinks so 🙂


…….and a few skeins of yarn dyed during the weekend too for my Store…..hope it’s not the dyeing thats causing the migraines????

    I think you have made the right choice. The stripey ones were a bit too intense? The turquoise part of them anyway 😉 These are definitely the prettiest.

    Hmm, maybe the chemical dyeing fumes are a bit too much?

    I think that you made the right choice. How could I have any doubts when you are so good with colors? 😉 I hope the migraines aren’t related to the dye. That would make it difficult enjoy the process.

    Sorry about the migraine! I think your curtain choice is lovely. The striped ones were gorgeous, but a bit too formal for the kitchen. Make sure you have good ventilation when you’re dyeing. Your yarn is always so beautiful, but you don’t want to put your health at risk.

    I like the patterned curtains…

    It is important to ventilate when you’re dyeing. Also, wear a particle mask, as the dyes can be caustic when inhaled. If it’s nice enough, try to dye outside whenever possible.

    very nice curains. hope your migraine has gone now, I know how yucky they are!! Lovely stuff for your shop too. 😉 I always wear a dust mask too when I’m doing stuff, and in the garden as well.

    I love those colours and I think you made the right choice. You could knit yourself some dishcloths in matching colours too!

    You must be careful with the dyes. Do you find you have a taste in your mouth when/after you have been dyeing? It’s been said but mask up, wear gloves, I’d have a shower straight after too, but maybe I’m paranoid!

    Oh no! I’m so sorry to hear about migraines! I experience them from time to time as well. I hope you are feeling better!

    Your work looks lovely! I cannot wait to experience some first-hand.

    Take good care!
