Pretty things on the horizon

Hi gang, how you doing today? survive your wednesday? this week feels long and its only wednesday. Which is probably why I am so excited about the weekend. Every bank holiday or day off i plan a million billion things to do (seriously you should see my list), so I thought i would share a few things i have in mind for this weekend.

So I pass this strange shop on the way to work every day, they sell a mix of random things, I had had my eye on a couple of very random things for a while now including this.

no dont get excited im not getting a dog (yet).

lovely (erm) fleece pink cushion.
But i have big ideas for these, cue big ideas .......

pretty huh? So i thought i had best get myself some fabric, i couldnt quite stretch to the lovely but £10 a mt stuff from Amy Butler so I headed down Leeds market and picked up this...

pretty huh? it was only £2 a mt (is only poly cotton) but still yum! I wonder if rob will let me have my curtains in this fabric, Rob?
So as one of the cushions is a floor cushion/dog bed (£5 btw) I needed something sturdy (as my mam would say) for the back, I have used this fabric before for some cushions and the back of my most recent quilt.

its actually lime green cord yum!
So thats my plans for the weekend, i also might have gone back for another metre to make the 20 min skirt i made a few months ago (am actually wearing it now).

Oh yes i was going to show you something else cute and dotty

how cute are my new tea towels? i popped them in the trolley in Tesco the other day but at £4 i think i might cut them up and cover a cushion in them lol.

so one final thing, this photo has been sat on my desk for 2 weeks now, i had been meaning to scrap it for ages and didnt get round to it, but today 1 week later i have scrapped it (will show you tomo)

my little teddy bear :(

Not to end on a sad note, i will be doing the blog anniversary giveaway tomo night, so be there or be square.
night xx
p.s roll on the weekend
