Yay, greeted by Sun two days in a row, dare I say Spring may be upon us? I have been throwing myself into lots of projects, hoping this week to finish my 'Ugly Bag', this being crappy yarn I found in my stash that I couldn't bear to throw away so I made Granny Square bag. Also working on crochet daffs, trumpet done, but having petal issues.
Having had a really good idea for decorating my bedroom I have revised my plan, initially it involved lots of samples of wallpaper arranged in a patchwork design on one wall. But the logistics of this amazing idea just didn't quite work out so I sorted through my, Homebase, B&Q and Laura Ashley samples to see which one I liked best, and guess what, hoping it might be a cheap option, NO it was a Laura Ashley!!!! I only need two rolls thank goodness, but still expensive.
My plan of action is to start with the skirting boards, glossing etc.... hole filling and sanding down :( also think I need to line a couple of walls. Then choose a 'white with a hint of' for the 3 plain walls, and do the fabulous but overpriced wallpaper on the 'bed' wall. To save money I intend to look out for another carboot/charity shop lamp base to paint eggshell white, then hit Dunelm Mill for matching shades to go on the bedside tables and lastly, need to make a head board or alternatively save an unhappy looking one from a skip or carboot. So I am praying to the gods of thrift and hoping I find said items for my project.
Anyway onwards and upwards.......till the next time Nicky xx
