I called at my local Laura Ashley shop earlier this week to pick up their new catalogue.
As always it is full of the most gorgeously tempting must haves.
Don't you just love this cerise combination for a summer picnic in the garden.
I couldn't leave the shop without taking a quick look at the curtain fabric, and guess what? The winter sale was still on and fabric was marked '50% off'.
Here was an offer too good to resist and I was quick to spot just what I'd previously drooled over for my spare bedroom.
Now half price, this palest pink and aqua was the perfect match for the bedspread I'd bought last year.
So I returned home with my 7 metres, packed away my knitting, and set to work making curtains.
Before I hang them at the window I shall give the wardrobe and chest of drawers a fresh coat of paint and then ....well .....a new carpet would nice!
I guess I'm going to be busy for a while!
Until next time,
