No new floor :-(

Hahaha! Got the first couple of strips of flooring down to discover that the floor is not completely level, so it was impossible to lay the wood. Having spent most of the morning listening to the BF's complaints and temper tantrums (DIY does not come naturally to, really) we pulled it up again. We were ruining more of it than getting it down. Even Dad came to have a go and struggled, which made me feel a little better - this is after all, our second attempt at it! The BF just wants to pay someone to do it now...he's seen what it may potentially look like when it's done, and he wants it! And to be honest, with our menagerie, a carpet wouldn't survive! I just want it done....*sighs*
Anyway, signed up for another couple of swaps on Craftster...the Firefly Swap and the Hogwarts at Christmas Swap. Can't wait! Yep, I'm a swapaholic! Yeah, and a Sci-Fi geek! And I made a couple of scarves for swaps, and also a sunglasses case from scraps, which I appliqued and embroidered. All in all a productive weekend, apart from the failed flooring attempt, but hey, I'm getting used to that!!
