My kitchen, part 2

Today I don't have to work :) so I thought I would update you all on my never ending saga called my kitchen, I need to tidy up a bit still and also put the nice pine shelf unit up on the other side of the kitchen, oh also paint the walls lol but its almost done :)

OH has to sort the top of the cupboards and ceiling.

I had forgotten about the red tins I brought in the sales after christmas and found them again when I had a clear out of my wardrobe top box (everything gets put in there ) they look great on the shelf, Ive put my herbs and spice jars in them. The heart plate I have had for ages, a freebie from Flora.

I painted an 99p chatity shop find towel rail and stuck some wooden hearts on it.
I dearly would love some new work tops but they will have to wait as OH has been made redundant but luckly he has already been offered another job but I have to play it safe just for now.

My tye Dyed duvet cover disaster

I decided yesterday that I would dye an old cream padded duvet cover I had lurking in my cupboard only problem is it was too big for my machine :(
I put 2 packs of dye and the right amount of salt in the drum and followed the instructions and this is what I ended up with lol. Not exactly the nice Ocean blue I had in mind but now it has dried it is a lot softer looking than it was when I took the pic's on the washing line, not quite as purple lol. The crochet pattern looks nice on the corners.

Im back :)

I have been so busy I have not been able to update my blog for such a long time.

I have a few mins before rushing away again but hopefully I wont leave so long next time :)

I have been busy painting my kitchen Ive not had a great amount of time to sew but I have made these :)

This is more storage for my fabric, I didn't put card in the sides of this one as the fabric I will put in it will keep it up lol.

I'm now working on another quilt :)

Hope to be back with pic's of my kitchen very soon (well I hope so as Im now so sick of painting lol).
