Pretty Fabric & an Idea......



The FQ's of fabric I ordered from e-bay came today. I'd never got fabric from this seller on e-bay before, but they were so reasonably priced and I'm very happy with them. My favourite is the cream with the polka dots and flowers on, and I'm also loving the pink polka dot one. Also this yankee strawberry melt arrived, which smells scrummy. It made all my post smell nice, I expect even the Postman smelt nice! (not that I go around sniffing postman).




I had a brainwave yesterday! I know its dangerous and doesn't happen very often. :o) I was looking at the hooge cork notice board in our kitchen which just seems to gather crap, and thought "I really hate that". So I decided after consulting hubby, that I'm gonna take it down and chop it in half. Then I'm going to cover it in the prettiest fabric I can find, and relocate it to the hallway. Anything I can use to cover the hideous artex in the hallway is fantastic in my book. So that leaves a big space on the kitchen wall. So inspired by Mel Mels peg rail, I've decided I want one too, so I'm on the lookout for a cheap one I can makeover, or hubbys gonna make me one. I intend to paint it either cream or pink. I had a lovely apron from my SIL a couple of years ago as a birthday present which is just too pretty to be hidden in the cupboard, so that will hang on the rail as well as some CK tea towels. I might put some pretty tins or china on top too. I'm itching to get it done now, will post pics when its finished.
