Hello all, and Juno!
Juno pointed me to Loes Hinse design for my tweed jacket pattern, and I promptly fell for the Garbo jacket. When I tried to order, it turned out that the cost would increase by about 1/3 for shipping to Europe. So I wondered if the thing would really be 'The Thing' for me and, to cut the long story short, I wrote to Ms Hinse herself to clarify a couple of questions. I used the contact form from her page and the mail didn't bounce immediately. So far a good sign. However, I'm sooo impatient, and I was wondering if any of you may be able to tell me how long a reply from her/them might take. I know that a week isn't too long (mailed her Sunday last); but what if my mail got lost in the depths of internet? I don't use the 'send read confirmation' thing, because I feel that is somewhat impolite when mailing to friends, and I didn't think of activating it before sending that mail.
OK, waiting shouldn't be too hard for me these days since the Great Kitchen Refurbishment is in full swing. We hacked out all the floor tiles which was one hell of a job, and DH put the wallpaper up and did the white paint job. He also applied the floor levelling stuff and today we'll put out the linoleum, he'll put on the blue parts that are to replace the wall tiles. It's a special technique which requires two layers, both applied with a wide putty knife. He did the same for the staircase and it came out so nicely. Today I'll go and get some the IKEA cabinets I stored at my parents' and tomorrow we might be able to begin with attaching them to the walls (assembling them is my job, and I really like it). Although it's so much work - isn't it great to be able to do stuff like that on your own? I really adore DH for his competence in these matters, and we worked exceptionably well together on this so far.
