First of all I have the results of my little Blogiversary giveaway - I used the random number generator thingy and it came up with 11, which means Sharon has won. Now I don't have any contact details for her so I am hoping she'll check back soon and drop me a line.
My spring bulbs from Lidl have burst into bloom this week.
Hyacinths (not scented though):
And I couldn't resist taking pics of this pretty little orchid:
A while ago we rescued it and two of it's companions from the discount trolley at B&Q where they looked very sorry for themselves, they were £2.50 for the three of them and so far they've all flowered.
My stepdad got me a little footstool to refurbish but I haven't had chance yet as everyone has taken a shine to it:
You see that mucky looking line on the floor? That's from rug tape, the type that stops your rugs from sliding about. The rug has now gone but we can't get the blasted tape off the floor - so far we have tried white spirit, nail varnish remover and two types of sticky stuff remover. If anyone has any ideas how to get rid if it they will be gratefully received?!!
I finished another tea trolley for Fugly-To-Fabulous yesterday:
See, more glue on the floor? I usually Photoshop it off!!
I went to my quilting group on Friday and Wendy helped me make my quilt sandwich (quilt top, wadding and backing) and over the weekend I hand tacked it. I am now ready to quilt it!! Hope fully I'll have it completed to show you next week.
In the meantime, I ordered some fabric to make quilts for our boys:
Their room has a Union Jack theme so we went patriotic with the fabric!! I now have to choose patterns....
W is off school with a cold and so I am going to curl up on the sofa with him and watch "Flight Of The Navigator"....
