Listen to the rain

Let it soothe your spirit. Smell the freshness. Hear the patterns. See the cleansing. The way trees and plants drink it in. Feel the renewal.

Bee happy ...... update a settee

I have had this lovely settee for a while now in the kitchen but it was looking quite dirty (from the dogs) and the woodwork was yellowing so I thought it was time for a make over.
 

 
These are the fabrics I have chosen to recover with, now the hard work begins ......

Bee happy ...... hang up a dress

I was out shopping recently in the sales and came across this pretty dress.
 
It's not an everyday dress with the beading detail and net skirt but is so lovely it seems a shame to hide it away.
 
I decided to use a pretty hook and hang it on the bedroom wall as art.
 


 
I can admire it everyday now.

Bee happy ..... tie dye napkins are finished

Remember my tie-dye pack I received in the post?
 
 
Well I got started on it this week and decided to use buttons of course!

 
I put a buttons randomly in the napkins and then put elastic bands around the fabric
to secure the buttons in place.


 
The dye all mixed up in the bowl with the napkins soaking looked quite pretty.

 
Rinsing the dye off the pretty button patterns appeared.





 
I am really pleased with the results, what do you think?

Bee happy ..... get colour popping

I was recently contacted by the lovely people at Dunelm as they wanted to send me
 something in the post.
 
A few days later this little package appeared through my letter box.
 
 
A couple of plain white napkins and Dylon colour in grey to try my hand at tie-dye.



 
I have been thinking of some ideas and will let you know how it turns out!
