The table is full of the last time the girls emptied their pockets of shells from Easter beach combing. Next week, they emptied lots of pots of 'treasure' from digging the allotment - namely clay pipes and historical ceramic pieces. They sort them, clean them with brushes and play museums; it's very wholesome play I will have you know.
Then before we went on holiday I had a 'You've been framed!' moment and shot through a chair whilst sat among the flotsam and jetsam of objects. I covered and painted the chairs last year but we don't have a garage so they have been out all winter.
So today I spent one hour after work and school, cutting, sewing, sweeping and homemaking.
Oooh! that's better I can have a sit down if I wear a jumper, it's so cold here.
The fabric is from Christina at My Colourful life. She was having a sort out and kindly sent it to me in the post. How kind is that? Thanks Christina. I made the seat covers in double fabric to make them stronger.
Now, where is the rest of that brown paint to touch up the corners?
We also picked our first little crop. Exciting times to come...
Hope the sun has been shining on you a little bit today, physically or metaphorically. Jo xxx
