I have been trying to catch up with some of the craft projects that needed finishing. I started a wreath sometime ago but couldn't finish it because some of the things that I needed were packed up ready for our move. I have since unpacked and was able to finish it off.
The bulk of the work had already been done, just needing buttons and all attaching to the ring. I love the end result.
Although I loved it, the colour combination was perfect for the lounge I did feel it was a little small and didn't have the impact that I wanted. So, I set to work with a wire frame and some fabric left over from the curtains and lounge furnishings and made a rag wreath. I think it is quite striking and fits in with the character of the cottage.
I may add a large burlap bow, if only I could remember where I put it when unpacking. My small crafting space is taking a little getting used to. The smaller wreath will be a wonderful addition to the bedroom.
I have trimmed a top sheet with some vintage lace, again adding a little character and age to the room.
I have finally finished the furniture in the bedroom using a roll of wallpaper found at the car boot sale for £1 when doing the tour of the family.
I have also added a couple of hangers made using a stag stamp and adding a bow using some ribbon from my stash.
Hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday or weekend, apart from a little rain yesterday evening the weather was good to us here. As always I thank you for your comments and e-mails I will get back to you all as soon as I can. Take care.
See you soon.
