Hellooooooooooooooooooo! I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend! I’m up early this saturday morning, and off to the Upper Hutt spin-in with my Mum. She was telling me of all the woolly joy that goes on at these events, so I’ll be sure to take my camera and share the fun with all of you!
So I make reference to my rocker and my creative corner a lot in my posts, and this post is no different! Next to my rocker I have had a wonky little stool for the last year or so, to hold my coffee cups, muffins, hooks, needles… all the paraphernalia I need to hook away! It has been frustrating me a lot lately, because it’s wonky, needles roll off it, I often elbow my coffee cup onto the floor, and it’s just been an all-round pain!
So I was VERY pleased when KB bought this home from a jaunt to the recycle shop at our local dump one day when I was in class…..
Not too bad for $8! So with a little help from a good friend….
I gave my new table a lick of paint!
And learned a very important lesson! Always, always open the test pots in the shop and look at the colour of the paint, don’t go by the colour charts! Wow that’s blue! And while I’m in a blue space at the moment, it doesn’t quite match my lounge. I didn’t want to walk into my lounge every day and go “WOW, do you see that blue table!” So back to the paint shop I went!
And found a colour much more matched to my temperament! Sea green in fact! It’s much more of a match….
And the piece de resistance….
the entire reason I decided to crack a granny mandala pattern….
Just as I envisioned… it’s just perfect for next to my rocker, and do you know how luxurious it is to have so much table space!
Although….. I’m admitting to you, I’m so scared of spilling coffee on my mandala, I’ve got my little wonky stool parked up next to the table to hold my coffee cup…
Not for long though!
Have a lovely lovely day and thank you so much for dropping in! Please leave me a comment so I can come and visit you too!
Lots of love from Alice and Raymond XX
P.S By the way! Can anyone help me out with a link or two to some awesome granny square patterns?! I’m wanting to make a cushion and am looking for something different to the traditional granny…. google is a little TOO helpful, so if anyone has any tips! Fire away! Thanks!
