A crafty bank holiday weekend …

As always I have too many projects on the go. I have spent the weekend enjoying and adding a splash of colour to my garden, making a lovely mini tablecloth for my grandaughter’ s  bedroom, covering an old chest of draws with Decopatch and finally a new project!

A weekend….

Having been working on my blanket for some time, this weekend  I wanted a change.
Therefore, I completed an old project, started and completed a new project.
Variety is the spice of life ha ha.

I am completely in love with Annie Sloan paint and have finally completed my dressing table and chair up cycle. This paint is so forgiving which is most helpful when the painter is a novice!

During a quick browse around the shops, I picked up some lovely material which of course needed a crochet border.
I had been dying to try out the pillow case edging featured in a recent Simply Crochet magazine.

I have  included a few pictures that for me remind me that ‘ I am home’..

Happy Hyacinth Pot

I’m back to what comes naturally……glorious colour.
I have so,enjoyed upcycling this pot which was home to a Christmas possetta. Every time I look at it it makes me smile.

I have also completed the first four weeks of my mood blanket inspire by Le monde de Sucrette. I look foward to picking up my trusty hook and  choosing the wool each evening to illustrate my mood during the day.
