Me and Phil bought a steamer this weekend. My only interest in it was being able to steam fabric, but Phil wanted it for the more practical purpose of cleaning the house (yawn).

We spent hours on Sunday cleaning the house from top to bottom and steaming everything (floors, windows, the oven…). Sadly, no fabric has yet been steamed.

While the house is, briefly, clean, I thought it would be a good chance to get some photos. So, not a sewing-related post, but nosing at other people’s houses is also interesting, right? Plus, there are quite a few me-made projects on display around our house.

My favourite Designer’s Guild print, Ramblas. Looking creased, because life is too short to iron bed linen.

This poster used to hang over my bed when I was living at my parent’s house, and now hangs over our sofa.

I carved this head in sandstone at an evening class, many years ago. The wicker basket behind it is also me-made.
