Crafting Frenzy

Crafting Frenzy......well not quite.....oh it started off great....got my DT stuff done for the big party on Saturday Night at Clare's Place......and then it came to a grinding halt......the man from M&S arrived with two huge boxes....and I couldn't wait to rip them open

Curtains......love em......but they are too long....so had an afternoon sat on the family room floor.....chopping about 6" off.....pinning hems....tacking and then hand sewing.......and then same with the lining.....so one curtain is up and to be honest I am quite happy with the one curtain look because the thought of doing it all again doesn't appeal at the mo.


Cushions........I absolutely adore them and can't wait to see them on my sofa
Lamps.....well the jury is still out on that one........will probably have to wait and see the furniture in the room.
Now you have probably guessed that my accent colour is going to be red......and I am not really a red girl.....but just thought I would have a complete change from boring and it's so cosy looking.
Off to get the rest of my DT stuff for this week done and who knows.....may manage another challenge....no parcel deliveries expected today....catch up with you all later.....Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

Kath I love this new look!
That cushion is fabulous and I love your lamp.
I can so see why you are into that one curtain look though. Crumbs, no way would I be able to alter anything let alone curtains way to go Kath!

Love the Brown and red look, love that cushion and the red lamp is just fab, use the iron on hemming stuff for the curtains.

Thanks for the sweet(excuse the pun) comment on my card.

Just love your room's colour combo, even if its just going to have one curtain ... good luck with the rest. Now you have to stop teasing us with these sneek previews. Can't wait to see the final assembled room. Hugs from Desire

Kath I love the new colour scheme and I think the lamp looks lovely and will add a cosy glow at night. I know what you mean about the sewing -I have to make black-out linings for curtains in spare bedroom, ugh, not the kind of crafting I want to be doing right now!!
