Home improvements- Cath Kidston style!
I haven't been lazy this month- honest! There's been lots of little jobs to finish and I'm getting into the whole mending thing (there always seems to be something that needs a tweak and a stitch). Now thatt the holidays are here I've been able to attack some of those jobs that have been on the to-do list for a while. I planned to jazz up my girl's curtains using my left over bunting fabric and was looking online for applique techniques but actually found a very simple technique in the Cath Kidston "Sew" book that I've been meaning to start since Christmas when I recieved it. Don't they look fab! I think I've morphed into Calamity Jane...I remember watching the "Never underestimate a woman's touch" song when I was little and thinking that putting ribbons on a chair was so far over the edge of taste that it was cringe-worthy. Oh dear, how I have fallen. I've chintzed up a perfectly simple set of curtains with the girliest fabrics around (Hate them, if you dare!)
