Time flies...

Well they say time flies when you're having fun and I've been having a lot of fun lately.
I've had the sewing machine out and have been busy sewing up a storm.
I've been using some gorgeous fabric from Ikea and am so happy with the results.

Made a new set of dining chair covers in a heavy french grey/white floral.

My roadside rescued velvet ottoman was given a pretty ruffly make over.

A litttle stool was given a new 'dress'.

An old wooden chest was bought back to life with Ikeas' christmas musical note fabric.

Ikea has such great fabrics and are really well priced.
A few posts ago I was starting to think about our backyard makeover.
Well it's been started and is slowly taking shape.
I'll give you a sneek peak but you'll have to wait for the the big reveal when it's all finished.

Be sure to check back soon,I've a great giveaway coming..xx
