All My Own Work

I'm not a "helpless female", but flat-packs are usually my husband's domain. So, when I announced that I would be assembling this chest of drawers, my husband looked worried! He then looked surprised when I successfully painted and built my first flat-pack! Needless to say I had a few words to say to him! ;)

I am very pleased with how a lick of paint has transformed this very cheap piece of furniture from Ikea and I now have somewhere to store my scrapbook-making stash.

The daffodils are my first harvest of the year from the allotment.

These are the dolls clothes that I have been knitting for a niece. I am now making items for a spring swap and I will also be making an apron for Mum with this material.
I now have a confession to make - I know I said that I wasn't going to buy anything new to craft with, but I have decided to make an appliqued wall-hanging and these fat quarters just fell into my basket! Ooops! ;)

Well done with the chest of drawers, it looks great. I love those doll's clothes, so pretty. It's years since I knitted any doll's things, I used to like making them for my daughter's dolls.
