Last night a friend brought round my new (to me) blanket box. It's in the sewing room, ready to house as much of my fabric stash as I can squeeze in.
Tomorrow I'll give it a first coat of paint, ready for a touch of shabby chic (sc). The pieces on the top (metal) are other bits I'm thinking of sc'ing, too, but am not sure whether to leave them as they are.
While I've got the brush out, I'll also undercoat the kitchen windowsill - the whole room needs decorating but I don't have the oomph to do it all at once, but will tackle it a bit at a time.
And before cleaning the brush, I'll give the sewing box and tv table an undercoat, ready for sc, as well.
Both of the next two pictures are
using up stash fabric and yarn.
It's so lovely having the sewing room back in action, even if it's not decorated yet. It means I can pop in and out as I want, to run up things like a little pile of dollshouse duvets and pillows for Daisy, a little friend.
This afternoon (Sunday) I'm using up yarn stash to make rose cushions for my craft fair stall, while watching Harry Potter on TV, with DH.
