The reason for this is that our house is right next to the church and my sitting room used to be used for Sunday school, and so as not to disturb the family in the house the room had its own door.
The house also has lots of coat hooks where the choir and rector used to hang their gowns.
The history of your house is sometimes hard to find but we have a photo of ours in its original form before it was extended in the Victorian times, isn’t it sweet!
But it would have been a little small for us, the lady that used to live there then was a Launderess so I presume that she took in all the villages washing! And the hedge in the photo is still here to this day.
These steps were used for the vicar to mount his horse.I would love to find out more but it is a very time consuming process and there is so many things that I try and cram into a day I think I will just have to leave it until I have more time.
There are still some flowers left to pick from the garden – does anyone know what these are because unfortunately I don’t so if anyone can enlighten me I would be pleased.
Over on one of my favourite blog My French Country home last week Sharon gave us a lovely recipe for Tarte Tatin and I commented on her blog that i was going to make it and if I did I would feature it on my blog – so here it is and it was so delicious and it was easy to do and used some of the many apples that I have in my garden.
Well back to the sewing -
I love trying lots of different designs for my cushion covers this is a lovely decorative cushion cover, using some old linens and tickings that I had as well as some lovely cabbages and roses fabric.
It is also the time of year when lots of my favourite clothing catalogues start to come through the letterbox and one of my favourite is Brora
This is a lovely photo from the Brora Catalogue I love the room!
I love this dress
And I am definitely going to be getting some of these boots I loved them the last time they were in fashion
– whoops showing my age!
