As usual, my inability to focus on completing just one thing has shone again.
Whilst on the ground and painting the white floors in the kitchen, I looked up and decided that I really didn't like the blue gingham curtain that was hanging on my kitchen window, and had been there for years since my 'primitive' decorating phase.
A new curtain had to be made and of course, it had to be white.
(Here's a hint for you, whenever I'm browsing through op shops and I see white sheets of fairly good quality or thickness, I snap them up.
I use them for slip covers, cushions, and of course, curtains.)
So out came the sewing machine and up went the curtain, adding instant lightness to the room.
I was very happy.
But it needed something more.
I make bunting for friends and to sell but realised that I didn't have any in my own house.What!?
So I raided my stash of vintage fabrics and made some bunting just for me.
Look at that delicious prettiness!
I love bunting, it is so cheery and festive and it's amazing how something so small can change the feel of a room.
Of course, looking at the photos you can see how horrible the paint is.
Well, that's in the process of being changed right now and my spare time is once again taken up with scrubbing walls, filling gaps and sanding to get them ready for the light blue that's to come.
