the week and FNwF

Firstly - big thank you to Cheryll for hosting another FNwF , the last one of the year! See you all in 2018!

After another mild spell at the start of the week, this winter's first snow came on Friday; 
not the nice fluffy stuff, more sleet then snow, which did not settle, but made everything wet, and which froze overnight, changing footpaths into a skating ring, with just little white here and there, including our kitchen roof.

On Friday afternoon I made a cake; 
no, not Christmas baking yet, just a simple marble cake to have with coffee this weekend.

In the evening I settled down with my  "Mystical Lanterns" blanket and made few more motifs.

Earlier this week I spent a quite bit of time rearranging my sewing room. 
You might remember that I had a bash not so long ago and tried to make it more tidy, but still it just did not work for me. Since we moved to this house and had to "downsize" my sewing room, I didn't have enough room to open fully my Horn cabinet, which seemed a shame. Not a huge issue, but there were other problems also, like not really having enough space for the ironing board. I do have a smaller, table top ironing board, but to enough "top" to have it comfortably out all the time, so I prefer to have a floor standing one. This one is smaller, not a full size one, so I should be able to have it up all the time, which is so much more convenient.
So, I decided to turn the whole room around, which also involved moving all the shelves (with DH's help). I also had a good sort out of my books and some various stash, and made a trip to the charity shop.
It is quite incredible how much difference moving few things around makes.
The floor area stayed exactly the same size of course (very small), I did not remove any furniture. But the room now seems larger, and the Horn cabinet can be fully opened.
So, welcome to my "new" sewing room.

Today started very wet and windy,
and now there is some sleet coming down, which will (I expect) freeze overnight .....

Have a safe week!
