A bit of upcycleing

One plain pale blue wool cardigan + one tatty chair back cover with nice lace'
Cut out a few of the flowers, luckily these were easy to detach, fiddle around until your happy and then carefully stitch the on.
 Nothing fancy, but I know theres only one around :)
 what do you think of my first effort ?
It seems ages since I was on here, school has been been busy but I have a day off on Monday and then it's almost the Easter hols, so I.m not complaining.
A couple more brooches to hoard, there doesen't seem to be much around these days.
  I'm looking forward to getting out to the bootfairs, I might even sell some clutter treasure. I really need to recycle some stuff.
 Well thats all for now, I have taken more pics of the baby pigs, they haven't grown too much so they are still cute.
 The weather here is so lovely at the moment it seems to make everyone feel better, and I can put my washing on the line at last :)
wishing you all a lovely weekend
bye for now Cate x

Hi Cate, what a lovely upcycled cardi, such a soft pretty blue.

We are heading to our annual car boot this morning, it starts the civilized time of 9:00am. I should be selling, not buying..haha

Enjoy your Sunday, Tam x

What a lovely idea. I can't wait for the boot fairs to start again.
