finishing touches, lists and a Tunisian owl ..................
Yesterday I had a lovely quiet day, my favourite sort of Sunday. I spent some time completing a few projects that just needed the final finishing touches. I have sewn up my baby hat, finished some crochet heart bunting, and I made a little owl shaped cushion (not very owl like) from my small swatch of Tunisian crochet.
I also washi taped a few more tin cans, some of them I have painted on the inside - this was quite tricky, not sure I would do it again. As I had a pot of emulsion paint handy I also painted a jam jar on the inside - it was a project from this month’s Homemaker and was supposed to look like milk glass - I quite like the look but I need to do a few more to perfect, as not sure this one worked that well. The inside lip of the jar didn't have a good finish so I have added a strip of washi tape around the rim of the jar which looks quite pretty.
I've got a busy week a head of me with lot of jobs to do before Friday. Kate, Seb and Jake are coming to stay for the Easter long weekend (I can't wait) and then I have my Easter egg hunt on Sunday afternoon which will involve 18 adults and 8 children followed by afternoon tea for everyone.
I feel a list coming on, but I don't think I am going to like it as some of the jobs will involve cleaning (not crafting, or crochet)
Bake for afternoon tea
Organise Easter egg hunt - write clues, hide eggs etc
Check I have enough Easter eggs for everyone
Turn up and hem lounge curtains (decorating almost finished)
Well I better make a start but forgot to say I am about to meet Barbara for another mini spa day. We supported a charity fund raising evening for Stockport Women's Centre a few weeks ago and received a VIP pass for Mottram Hall with a free beauty treatment each and full use of the spa facilities (including fluffy white gown and slippers to chill out in) I can't wait.
