Window Seat

I have always dreamed of having a window seat and at last my dream has come true. My husband got some old school benches and bookcases from my dads school that they were throwing out and one of the benches made the perfect base for our window seat creation. window seat He had to add some wood to make it taller but this created some nice little shelves to put baskets on. He painted it white and then I finished it off by making the seat cushion covers using some Cath Kidston fabric that I had bought in the sale a while ago. window seat Its perfect for our front window!!

Baby blanket

This is my first post in a while! I've been busy making all kinds of things but just never seem to get round to posting them.

Anyway i started the new year by making this gorgeous crochet blanket for my sister to use as a baby blanket. I intend to make myself one as I love it!

The actual crocheting didn't take too long, the nightmare was weaving in all the loose ends! I've learnt my lesson with this in future I'll get rid of the loose ends after I crochet each square!


Now we just need to wait for the baby to arrive!!!
