pretty practical...

 yesterday began with a quick much needed project.

the loo door is half glass and when we first moved in i put up a temporary scratty piece of fabric to tide us over...that was 9 years ago now...ahem...



every time i sat on the loo i was reminded that i really needed to rectify this.
9 years is obviously plenty of time to decide just what i wanted up there.

having played around with doily prints recently and having developed a recent penchant for this colour ways having been inspired by this print i put 2 and 2 together and whipped up this piece of fabric.


it was a case of layering up the colours using the lovely warm sunshine to speed up the drying process...

it started with pale pink...followed swiftly by some ochre...


and finally a splash of gunmetal grey.


4 stitched edges and an insert of ribbon and i'm wondering why it took my 9 years.



i'll have time now to think of other things while frequenting the littlest room in the house.

I was reading this and looked up at the scratty bit of net that i put up in 2005 to obscure the door to the kitchen. I have nothing to replace it with today but Monday I am shopping, in the meantime the net is dead. Not only is it merely dead it is really most sincerely dead.

This looks great and I bet you were glad you waited!! Isn't it funny how sometimes we look at something and realise just how long we have been thinking about changing it, to the point that we don't notice it anymore (my hubby does that with any jobs that need doing around the house...grrrr!). Have a great week in the littlest room. xx
