Sausage Dog Love! :)

Hello everybody!

A few posts ago I told you about the cover my mum was making for my sausage dog draught excluder.  Well she finished it and it looks fantastic! Although I still didn't want to put it on the floor lol.  Adrian said I had too because it couldn't stay on the dining chair forever!  My mum used lots of warm bright colours and knitted them in stripes!

Hehehe I think he looks lovely and cosy now! And he will be kept a little bit cleaner with his jumper! :)

Happy Easter!

Hello lovely people!

Well I was in Glasgow last weekend when I went home to see my family, and when my mum and I were going up to Mandors we saw these lovely egg statues dotted about. 

Each one was different and they are all done by different people, you could even buy them! :)  It was done by the charity Action For Children and you could buy a special book which took you on a egg hunt through Glasgow!

Here are a few more we spied along the way!

This next one was my favourite! It was in Glasgow Central Station, all the bits were carved out and just looked beautiful.

Please Take A Seat :)

Hello everyone!

Well today I have my seat covers to show you :)  

We have picked up a lovely second hand table and four chairs recently, and I felt like they needed a bit of padding on them.  I had made cushions before but wasn't sure on how to make seat covers. 

Sooooo I decided to get some seat covers that were already made up.  And this was the best I could find.

They are nice I suppose but they were a bit dull for my taste, so I toddled on down to the fabric market on my day off and found some lovely soft warm tartan inspired fabric.

I then measured my cushions and drew the pattern onto some paper.  It took a while to get the curve exactly right.  I added a 1cm seam allowance round the edge and left about 5cm along the top so that the excess material could be simply tucked in on itself.

And voila! I have 4 pretty seat covers that can easily be changed when I get bored of these ones! :)
