Messrs Bodgitt and Scram had great fun on Sunday afternoon, wallpapering our smallest bedroom. Thank goodness it is still the pantomime season, as we would have fitted right in. Ranging from knocking the paste bucket over, to cutting the paper too short, getting tangled up in the pasted paper, we were a real slapstick team. I even managed, quite unintentionally, to put the past bucket right at the foot of the ladder, but luckily Christopher spotted it in time and missed it. But the paper is up and you have to look really closely to spot the 'patchwork' bits - well it is going to be for a sewing room, so the paper will fit right in!
You can't really tell what the paper is like from this picture, but it's a white background with a pale silvery grey pattern. Very grown up and elegant - how we came to choose it is a mystery, but it does look very pretty.

Today I started painting - a pale dove grey, but I'm not certain that I like the paint. I'll just have to cover as much of it as possible with quilts and stitcheries - mind you the room is so small that there won't be much wall space left blank by the time all the furniture is in. Tomorrow - more painting. In the days of my youth I could have finished it in one day, but these days I like to take things at a more leisurely pace.
