Upcycling, gardening : contentment

It's been a great bank holiday Monday, just spent the day pleasing myself.

One curtain and a duvet cover, from a charity shop and a relative.

With a sewing machine and some interfacing, Are now

An ironing board cover

And a laundry bag.

Feeling refreshed ventured out into the garden, planted my courgette plants 

and weeded in the flower bed.

Time for a cup of coffee and a bit of hooky time

Day complete.

Hope yours was a good one too.

New blanket

I've been working on a new blanket. Warm weather has now arrived so thoughts turning to cotton instead. Looking for an interesting pattern for a top.


I'm getting frustrated by not being able to use my usual method of adding photos via picassa web, but I'll get used to this new way in the end.

Hope you are all enjoying this fine weather.

Think Pink

Jumper in Disney princess colours for granddaughter.

Then, impulse purchase of this fabric.

Which I turned into this top

Think I must be going through a pink phase.

Not had much time for blogging just lately, looking forward to catching up with all my favourite bloggers today.
