Busy busy

Hello again; well things have been busy; but good busy....there have been home decorations - turns out Bento is a bit of a carpenter and has created some lovely alcove shelves in our new abode...

Work in progress....
 Finally complete...
(check out the marimekko curtains and lovely cushions created by yours truly (though not too closely at the curtains...they aren't hemmed yet.....well they only hang behind the sofa...shhhhh).

And of course the fabulous olympics and paralympics took place in London. It was a really inspiring; communal and enthusiastic atmosphere. So of course we did our bit (please note the flags are not stickers but face painted on; albeit using a stencil.

And finally my latest challenge last weekend was cycling from Oxford to London - to prove it here is us at Heathrow! It was really good fun...i'd do it again for sure, but maybe choose a different route this time - the Chiltern hills and villages were gorgeous but there must be a way around the A4!.
So you can see why my sewing and knitting have taken a back seat..and next week Vienna here i come - woo hooo!!!!!
