Spring oilcloth tablecloth - Fridays Fav Fabric

Ooo - spring is here, hubby has the barby out and all nicely cleaned, the patio heater has been put away until next winter, and the pool is looking blue.

Spiders are spinning webs already from my washing line and im back to checking the laundry before i bring it in, incase there are any little or large friends hiding in strange places.

I put out my new oilcloth tablecloth - nice and bright and ready for the ketchup and bbq sauce.

We have some gorgeous oilcloth vinyls for tablecloths in store,  pop in and take a look, and they dont cost the earth and we can cut the length you require to the nearest 10cms.

Happy spring

Marimekko lamp cover ~ a creative weekend

Well, apart from being a seriously busy weekend, a short BBQ event, a night out to see Hale and Pace at Twin Towns, where i almost split my sides with laughter, i have had time to cover my old lamp with some Mini Marimekko in the stunning blue/white colourway.

I must say im really pleaseed with the result. We had deocorated a while back and as usual I never get round to finishing what I start. So for some reason, this weekend was the one.

It was so easy to do and didnt take more than about 45 mins from beginning to end. Well had to pop to Bunnings of course to get some PVA glue, as the kiddies had some how used all the previous 2 litre bottle I was secretly hiding for a rainy day.

I cut and measured and rolled the drum over the fabric and glued on the inside flap and hey, a new lap. Quite pleased with it I must say.

All I need now is a canvas and some cushions to match and a new sofa, and nice new shiney rug and..............................................................................................

Have a fabulous creative week.
