Back to Blogging !

Hi bloggers, well i have not blogged for months, for many reasons really, work commitments, illness, school holidays, summer holidays, christenings, weddings and funerals... yes we've had them all.!!. Having said all that i have managed to still sew and craft away a little - not as much as i would have liked but i am determined to get some projects finished this weekend as its the first in many weeks that i have had no commitments on :) And seeing as i have a stall at the Super Duper Fair at the Winter Gardens in November i really need to get projects finished and ticked off the many lists that are piling up ...

First on my list is finishing the dining room chairs. I purchased a pine farmhouse table and 4 chairs from eBay that really needed attention... :) but i really wanted to get my teeth into sanding the top down as it was so marked, the previous owners had put hot pans directly down on the table top .. gasp... so as you can imagine it was covered in white rings and burn marks. Well i offered £45, it was accepted and she come home with us ...yay.. then the work began, within an evening i have sanded and filled the table top and she was then given 2 coats of stain .. she looks lovely now. My intention was to paint the legs a cotton white but at the moment the remain a pine stain. The chairs needed re-covering and as i am trying not to spurge to much at the moment i covered them in some Cath Kidston Rosali.. my intention was to paint the chairs cotton white also... i think i might still do this one day ... I then purchased 4 chairs from the CS that kind of match but these were horrendous - slashed, stained, a little stinky and one had a broken leg, but for £3 i took them. Now they have been sanded filled fixed cleaned and re-covered in Rosali Blue, with painted Cotton White chairs they look rather lovely :)...

I will upload the pictures in the next day or two, as i am sitting in the dark at the moment just relaxing with a glass of wine while my son is watching red or black ...!! Here are just a few of what she did look like !

Finealy if the weather keeps up i have spied a rather lovely pair of welly boots, and i really need them lol ... Oh the joy :)

So until tomorrow take care my bloggy friends  xox
