I've finished a project!

So pleased that I've actually finished a project! A while back I started a  crochet cushion, but I lost interest when it was time to sew the ends in.Then I came across this chair with potential at the charity shop for a fiver and I couldn't resist it. It's perfect for my summerhouse in the garden, or my craft room, when I say perfect, I mean it would be with a lick of paint

I'd already bought the paint for another project, but it still took me two weeks to get started!
The paint colour is called Water from B&Q, it's an emulsion but I turned it into a chalk paint so that it would stick to the wood.

Ta- Dah

I'm really pleased with the colour and I think it co-ordinates well with the cushion, which I finally finished yesterday!
Now I must crack on with the project that I originally bought the paint for!
Have a great week!

Its been so long....

I think I may have forgotten how to do it, so I'll start with a short post I think.
Lets start with  Happy Easter to all of you!!

It will be a very relaxing affair here, Hubby is working away, just me and my boy, at 19, he's too old for an Easter egg hunt, but he is busy chuffin chocolate down instead of breakfast!!

I have been busy with my crochet. I really enjoyed making my granny blanket,

especially the bobble edging, I think it was my favourite bit!
I also made myself a cosy cowl, I'm wearing it today, so chilly this weekend! I'm

still having difficulty following some patterns, especially the diagrams, but I shall just have to keep practising!
I have been stocking my Etsy shop with vintage and handmade goodies too.

  Had a fab visit to Brum, fabric shopping ( I do miss the markets) and visiting the family!

I found lots  of gorgeous ditsy prints, I shall have to go back for more very soon! So many gorgeous fabrics to choose from.
Hope you have a lovely day! You will find me snuggling on the sofa with Netflix, Wilson, and my crochet!
