Before....After

Before the school holidays (which seem like quite a while ago now) I was hoping to get a little painting done....because no one else will do it! :)

The term rolled on and no spare time was found, so the holidays were just the spot to fit in some painting. I was brave enough to allow the kids to "help"....just a little, being the control freak that I am.

With a view to freshening up the tired old laundry I picked a medium shade of blue for the doors and a light blue for the walls. I am leaving the architraves white.....just because I know when I've had enough of painting.
 After the coats of blue paint and screwing the handles back on I am quite happy with how the doors have turned out. I will have to post another picture of the finished room with the walls done too. Amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do to a room.....and to your mood!

I have also done a little sewing recently too....amazingly. Some friends had their first baby boy a few weeks ago. So just the opportunity to try out this project on the Freebies for Crafters blog. I subscribed to this lovely blog a few months ago and am just loving the inspiring emails that pop in to my inbox. I loved the look of this quilted toy leash at Moda Bakeshop....so just had to give it a go too. Easy to follow instructions and they turned out very cute. I reinforced the stitching on the overturned end near the toy ring for a little more strength for a strong 'little man'.

Now off to have a look around blogland for a while......I have missed catching up with everyone's happenings and am always so thankful for your many inspirations. Happy stitching!
