Crafting this week

I did have to take a little time for housework this week unfortunately but plenty of time for art and craft. I made a bag for a gift on one of our Coffee&craft sessions and was thankful Julie didn't turn up that evening to watch me make her special birthday gift!!!
Cath Kidston cotton duck dot for the interior and Provence rose oilcloth for exterior personalised embroidered motif on calico.
 Art this week was water colour and we painted some rocks. This was a subject I had done a few years ago but that time it was in colour pencil.
I finished my umbrella holder this week and it's al ready been put to good use.
 I aim to do my old pine bed next and then my dining room table but need to wait until I am on leave and can work on them all day. Two more stools to do when J has shortened the legs for me. He is much more accurate than I am with a regular saw.
 Smudge just loves the ladies coming for coffee and craft and as soon as she hears the kettle on she places herself under the table in the hope of some crumbs!!!
 J's first bird box is almost done so my job to sort out the paintwork effects next.
