Oops...three days between blog posts.
I must have been very busy!
Mr E has been away with his job again, and whenever that happens I tend to work non-stop, and sleep very little.
Today I have really felt my body crying out, "stop!".
But let me tell you this - my kitchen cupboards have been emptied, scrubbed, de-cluttered, and are now wonderfully organised. \o/ I thrive on things being organised, so time at home alone offers me the chance to work past midnight without Mr E chiding me and sending me off to bed at a decent hour.
But he arrives home in about 3 hours, so my time of cleaning freedom is almost over.
Good. I'm ready for a long, relaxing sleep.
I'm still waking up before 6am for my Bible study. Such a precious way to begin my day.
Apart from the kitchen, I also re-organised our bedroom wardrobe, and some book cases.
I've filled the back of my car up twice with stuff that's now in the hands of the local Salvation Army Op-shop. Seriously, I feel great about my Spring clean!
But you know when you start to de-clutter, and other things catch your eye?
Well, my old white chairs that Blossom painted many years ago after they were salvaged from a tip shop, were looking a bit the worse for wear. I had recovered the seats in pretty floral fabrics back then, but years pass and they just looked sad this week. I couldn't ignore them.
So one of them went from this...
I now call it my Christmas chair as the fabric is my all-time favourite festive print and it will remind me of jolly times all year through!
The other chair had quite a different makeover.
I used some drill fabric I'd bought last year in the home-wares section of Spotlight. I love it!!
I've also been planning projects, tutorials, and due dates for the blog and my e-zine into 2014...
...and I did manage to complete some projects for the November 1st issue of Elefantz Home!
Two different bell pulls...one short, one long. One is a brand new design, and the other is one I made last year but have not shared before...
This elegant framed shabby roses stitchery will have all four versions in the magazine to suit your own language...
Every little girls needs her own handbag.
And "Dottie Dog" is her added bit of sweetness...
Now to finish the remaining projects in the 'Girls! Girls! Girls!" issue.
But first, a rest.
