Put it on a shelf

Hello lovely people!

I haven't posted in a while because we have been decorating our new house!   I have been working on a set of shelves I found at  a junk shop.



As you can see it was a horrible green colour and  had glue or candle wax all over the shelves.   Ady sanded it down for me and I started to paint it white.




 It took about 5 coats of paint to cover the green!   I thought I'd be there forever!  I added some pink to the back of the shelves because it was too white.




In the Kitchen we have a wee nook.   So I made a few cushions to make it comfortable.   I am really pleased with end result.

Hoop To It!! ;P

Hello lovely people!

Today I wanted to share a project with  you that I have been working on since last year!  It has just taken me a while to get round to finishing it.

I wanted to make wee tiny embroidered pieces of work and came up with the idea of tiny embroidery hoops.  I sketched a design out and  Ady put it onto the computer for me to adjust it a wee bit.  He knew someone who had a lazer cutter that would cut out my design.  So I ordered some pale pink acrylic and he cut me these really cute hoops!


It took me a few trys to get my fabric to stay in the frame but I managed it!  My first try was a hand stitched dittery dot logo, which took ages to do and made me go a wee bit cross eyed.  But it looks really cute and was worth it!


Now I have some really cute brooches for my coat!
