So I was mooching along here in Basra feeling fairly uninspired by all the sand and sand coloured surroundings so I decided I’d turn interior designer and try to doll up my room which I share. It looks like this:…which of course is very very dull. [at this point in typing I have had to put on my body armour and helmet – it is very uncomfortable!] I ordered some massive posters of forest and some green fabric to hide the bricks and padding. We’ve also replaced that one sheet of wood with two, nicer, sheets of wood to even up the top and ‘clean it up a bit’. Hopefully will post the finished article in a few days or so.
Which was fantastic, and got me back into the crafting mood! Especially as the CrossStitcher magazine had a free kit with it!
