Is there such a word as prettifying and if so have I spelt it correctly? Don't think I have but you get the point.
I've been busy making a few new things for our bedroom. I'm not 100% keen on our black bed frame so rather than go to the hassle of painting it I've made a patchwork throw to go over the head end. I'm really pleased with how it looks.
I also quickly threw together a cover for the lampshade on my side of the bed which was plain cream and a little boring. Just need to make one for the other side now.
After all the sewing I've been doing over the last few months to sell, it's been really nice to make some things for our house instead.
I finished off with this new cushion cover. For anyone who's interested the pretty pink and blue stripe used in all three items is from Louise Loves.
Thank you to everyone who left messages on my last post. The interview went well I felt and I'm waiting to hear hopefully about a second interview. They seem to work at an incredibly slow pace so not worried that I haven't heard yet. I'll keep you posted. x
Friday Update~ disappointment on the job front I'm afraid. The company have decided to 'go back to the drawing board' what ever that means. Basically there isn't a job anymore! Although they thought I was fantastic. Not much use being fantastic if it doesn't result in a job. Very very disappointed to say the least. It was the first interview I had got in 9 months of unemployment. Just no jobs around. To look on the bright side, Simon is on hols from today for the next 6 weeks. So there are some benefits to being at home! Six weeks with my gorgeous hubbie ~ what could be nicer!
