Well how quick do those weeks go by? I had my sister up to stay for ten days and we did a bit of sewing but not much we just enjoyed the lovely sunny weather that we did have and did some chilling, i have been busy since though do you remember this well l did a little sewing and we had a bit of a photo shoot with Lauren modeling and it turned into this and Lauren was pleased with it so l got another pattern and this turned into this and this is the one she wants to wear when she goes to London. Well l was on a roll by this time and l have made her a skirt and a top too, although the skirt is awaiting a zip, it's been realy nice as it's been about six years since l have made her any thing except for fancy dress and a bridesmaid dress, mom making your clothes is so not HIP but thankfully she now wants me to make more and oh boy she keeps adding to the list. I have been to a couple of car boots lately and Lauren has been asking for a desk so she can do her studying. Well she has a lovely old fashioned style bedroom suite and l did not want anything too modern in there plus l did not want to spend a lot of money so l have been keeping an eye out and this is what l found, this is the before shot this is after
it should of been £25.00 but the nice kind man said l could have it for £15.00. Well what a bargain l nearly snatched his hand off, it needed some work doing to it so l rubbed it down and waxed and polished it and it has come up as good as new and my daughter well, she loves it and if it helps her study to become the lawyer she wants to be it was £15.00 pound well spent and hard work will be worth it. At the car boot l bought this lovely little ballerina, made in italy, and another trinket box both for 50p each, it always amazes me what other people don't want and are prepared to get rid of like two weeks ago on Sunday night, my son rang to say he was at a freinds house for a b b q and there was this table and chairs a bit close to the flames and my son said shall we move it and his friend said no its okay there nobody wants it so l am going to use it to put my car engines on and my son said l know someone who would like it so on recieving the call we went too look at it and this is what was waiting for me and i had a vision of how it could look,it had been out in the rain for some time and some of the wood had split but l fell in love with it the moment l saw it and it came home with me and again some hard work rubbing it down and painting and this is now my new table and chairs l think its very french country looking, l used fired earth egg shell paint in duck egg blue very fast drying and a great finnish and it did'nt stop there this little wot not cuboard or curioanother car boot find on Sunday got painted and my little tv table also got a coat of paint and beleive you me if hubby had not woke up when he did he might of got a coat of paint as well because l just love this make of paint so l did these as well there will not be any more hard work for my hands for a while as l have over done it a bit and they are quite achy now. Oh l have some good news to share a dear friend came to see me two weeks ago and after catching up on whats been happening in her life she asked me how l am doing and l sort of said oh l just sit here most days sewing and vegatating since i am not looking after my grandchildren after my son-in-law got made redundant and lo and behold she offered me a job, she is a manageress of a nursing home so when my police check comes through l will be giving the elderly patients their breakfasts clearing away and setting the table for the next meal then seeing what they want for the next day l will start at seven in the morning and be home for eleven with the rest of the day too myself, well thats whats been happening in my life for the past few weeks theres probably more, i will show you if l remember but l have been reading a few of your lovely blogs too, well l would like too wish you sunny days but here we are expecting a torrential down pour tonight so keep dry and keep safe lots of hugs Pat.
