Update on my kitchen

The jug and oil/vineger/salt &pepper set were from the CS I always have to visit lol.

This is an update on my kitchen as Ive not had time to sew :(
The paper is Laura Ashley Rajput, brick/cream I got off ebay for £3 +£3.95 a roll. I love it as it looks so good with the cream.

Magazine table now done

Not sure if anyone remembers me getting this table but I have now painted it lol.
It is going to my No 2 son's for my DGD to sit at with her colouring books :)
The dark wood was a pain to cover, even after sanding well and undercoat but I think it has turned out ok and the little rose on the top was a left over piece of transfer I had from another project.

Blue and white quilt finished

My blue and white patchwork quilt is now finished.
I made it from the Ralph Lauren valance sheet from the CS.
It took a lot longer than the last one I did as I cut all the squares and then decided to use a good wadding so had to wait for it to arrive from Ebay (Hobbs cotton batting)
I wanted to put a binding on this one and spent last night hand sewing the back on (sore fingers now lol).
It's not perfect but Im realy pleased with it)
I have enough blue sqaures to make a small patchwork quilt to match.
