I finished my first commission - a button fender with wings for the front of a neighbour's boat. I need to do some side fenders for a friend, now.


We have some curtains. Wool-lined, no less. We went through dozens of ideas, from roller blinds hidden down under the gunwhale, to traditional curtains, but settled on some lined inserts for the windows which clip into some little hooks in the frames. Wow, a post about curtains. Rock and Roll! 

The fabric is from a fantastic shop in Bath, Country Threads.

We took a trip to Bath over the weekend and stayed by Pulteney Weir. Whilst there, we saw a Don McCullen exhibition that we'd forgotten was on, which was amazing.

We have an oven! Imagine!

Simone had become an incredible one-hob chef, but it is a real treat to be able to expand our repetoire a bit!
