The sun is still shining...

I'm going to stop looking at the weather forecast.....all week it has promised rain, showers, storms etc and all week we have had blazing ('too hot' moany kinda blazing!!) sunshine...!

Its a new experience - having good weather in the school holidays - a good experience! We have had lots of picnics in the park and lots of playing in the garden...

As my parents have been visiting this week - I haven't had many chances to play in my new workroom!!! I have so many things I want to try and do (I say try because the artistic creative gene bypassed me somewhat...) but not enough time to do them.....

After speaking with my mum this week though I am determined not to be so eager to run before I can walk in a crafty sense. I think I'm too impatient which compromises the quality of the things I make...this blog can maybe become a record of how I get more proficient??

I started this blog to be a platform for the breastfeeding support I do....it hasn't done its job properly lol!!! My fault - I start to write about breastfeeding but then I get anxious that I will offend non breastfeeding people.....so I change the post....ridiculous I know!! Think I need to work through those issues first!!!

Below is a pic of the end result of the makeover of these chairsThey were primed, got 2 coats of F&B breakfast room green emulsion, a coat of clear wax (they need another!) and I re covered the seat pads with some curtain fabric which I think came from Dunelm Mill....


I'm pleased with the makeover although I won't be offered any jobs as an upholsterer anytime ever!!! ....

Lovely baby pics! And the chairs look smashing - what make of clear wax did you use? Was it easy to use? I need to protect my F&B chairs with wax I think.

It was colron clear wax - just because that was only clear one in b&q!! Was easy to work with as I did it outside on hot day so nice and soft - just a bit tedious buffing it up!!!;0

Those babies are lovely. Mwah.
Now, how can you go from Breastfeeding to chairs in the same sentence [well almost].
