I really enjoyed this - found it very relaxing. I keep thinking I was going to stuff up - but I didn't and think it is cute. It will be framed and put in my little girls room. I already have another lined up and ready to start! This one is 10cm by 10cm, so only very small Smiley (I still need to rub out the lines where I had to find the centre!)

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need help! Dining area is a DISASTER! (img heavy) on: November 06, 2009 05:15:16 PM
Well - my whole house needs a makeover, but first of all I have this room that is in desperate need of help!

Yes - bad, I know. We have not long moved in, and it is rented. The carpets are awful - I have a carpet cleaner coming through on Monday, hopefully that will help! I am at a loss of what the colour theme should even be, since there is a purpley/brown feature wall, and our furniture is assorted. I would really love a new dining table, but our funds don't allow for one at the moment. Any ideas what I could do with the current one? Can I paint it? It is like a high gloss, colour grey  Huh Plus, I need something under it, before the kids spill stuff on the already ruined carpet!

The curtains are ours, and they cost me a small fortune when I brought them, so I would like to incorapte them into the room. Maybe recon them? But how - I don't know! This is a pic of the main window - alot of sun comes in here, making it hot - but I love having the curtains open because I love natural lighting.

This chair is part of our lounge suite but it wont fit into the main lounge - I would love to recover it but I have never recovered a thing in my life! And because they were orginally my parents, I don't want to chance wrecking it. Maybe make some lounge slips instead? PS - It is a recliner, but is never used as one. My hubby only uses it if he wants to watch something on free to air tv, since we can't pick it up in the main lounge. Plus the kids play the N64, but they sit on the floor Tongue

This is our display cabinet, which we got for a wedding present. In the glass doors, I have the kids christening things, plus our wedding things. Then, I have kinda filled the rest up with crap, because I don't really know what else to put on it? I am one of these people where everything has to match - maybe I need to get over that??? Cheesy

So, as you can see - it is a disaster! Please help! Any ideas, or colour theme suggestions are greatly appreciated, thanks Cheesy I would like to keep it on the cheaper side, but the more I look at the room, I don't think that is going to happen!

It isn't like me to finish something so quickly - I am a last minute kind of person - but I have so much Christmas stuff to make this year that I need to get started on. I won't be going to the post office until Wednesday, so Snazzy probably wont recieve until early-twenty somethings of November Wink

Well - I am done! Now I just have to pack it all off and send it - I have it all well hidden because my kids would go crazy if they seen it! Smiley

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Dress for my daughter :) on: November 04, 2009 08:10:59 PM
My daughter dosen't have many clothes, so I decided to make this dress for her today out of an old top of mine :

It had heart shapped holes in it, but when I made it into the dress I ended up with the hearts facing upside down. But when she is wearing it you can't notice! I sewed the little butterfly onto the neckline cause I botched it just a tad. I orginally made her a halterneck but it was too big, so I just decided on simple straps. I really like it, just hope she dosent grow too much too quickly, I guess I could of made it a tad longer. I didnt use a pattern, just made it up as I went along. I pretty much got her measurements spot on by guestimating - I did it all while she was asleep bar the straps!

Here is a pic of the top before:

Thanks for looking - CC appreciated, I am a beginner sewer Smiley
