Chairs and my new little friends…

The hubby is still home for another week, and I think, on the whole, it’s doing me good.

We had a lovely morning out this week – a coffee and a spot of op shopping – which resulted in the purchase of a lounge suite. As you do. Well, as we do, anyway.


Mr G is going to strip back the wood and refinish it, like he did with an old cabinet of my parents. The plan is for the kids to trash the velour red covers (which I hate to admit are growing on me) and then, when the kids are beyond the trashing stage (Mr A , I’m looking at you) I’ll recover them. 2 chairs and a couch. Not bad.

And then there are these little possums, who are hanging off the back of the chairs and causing mischief.


Meet Alex and Emma – new friends for Mr A and Miss E.


Made from a wonderful pattern by Jodie Carelton. I’ve already ordered more material to make two more and have a bag of fabric to make heaps of clothes for them. So nice to sew again after so long.

Today is digi day. I’ve got a colour scheme I can’t get out of my head, and today is the day to do something about it.

Catch ya…
