Shirt Quilt

I loved quilt pattern in issue 14 of Homemaker magazine 

and decided to make one for my son Harry using shirts. 

Backing fabric is one piece

 all backed with fleece blanket 

All from a pile of shirts and a fleece throw
I'm delighted with result. 
The quilt took about 21 hrs total to complete.

Decoupage Drawer Chest

Had this idea in my head for this drawer chest quite sometime ago!
It's been moved around the house but is now settled in our newly decorated bedroom.

sheet music with flowers 

cut the flowers from leftover wallpaper

3 coats of Ronseal mat varnish to seal.
how it used to look

sanded then painted 2 coats of Dulux Blue Reflection first

Bedroom Re-style

Loving our new wallpaper. 
Went for a shabby chic look. 

Have enjoyed revamping these lovely little boot sale find shelves..... 

old bottles and jugs hanging with ribbon alongside our wedding ring pillow hand embroidered

little treasures gathered along the way.....

Bird cage with fairy lights inside ...looks pretty in the dark....

and table lamps.

wasn't overly keen on their original colour

paper pom pom flowers in vintage bottles

Beach Treasure Bags

Just something I made for those summer walks ....
along the beach....
So often I have arrived at the beach for a stroll and forgotten to bring a little something to hold the little bits of treasure that I collect along the way,
I never come back empty handed and so many times while there I have made a mental note to make a little bag to carry and keep safe my treasure.
Decorated with some lovely little bits of beach treasure and hand embroidery

The soft wool will cradle those delicate shells,glass and pottery finds, holding its shape making it easy to use . 
A long cross over strap will keep my hands free to explore the sand for more treasure.
A handy little net bottom to sift the sand back through!

then I made some more.....

 little details
bullion loops
 candy pops
 seashells & knots
looking through

she sells sea shells

this one has a shirt pocket inside

The backs
