Its still raining

Hello everyone, yes its still raining in Somerset, today is particulary bad, very heavy down pours, thats why I am up so early on a rest day. 

Well things have been very busy here, I still have toothache and having another two teeth taken out on Wednesday, hopefully that will be the end to anymore toothache.

I have been working hard on some wedding designs for my napkins, I have the offer to go onto a Wedding website so trying to get some designs together for that, this is a design I made for my good friend Lynn, who's son is getting married on 4th July 2012, congratulations to them both.

Its quite plain but I will be doing some more fancy ones too.  I hope they like them.

I have also made a cushion for a Christmas Present, yes i've started thinking about Christmas, that stressful time of year when you are stretched to your limit.  I get most of my graphics from the graphics fairy, you can find a link to her website on the right hand side of here.  She has the most amazing graphics her website is like a treasure trove, and such a lovely person too, please take a visit over to her site.

I have some very exciting things in the pipeline which until I have them sorted I cannot tell you about so you will have to come back and see.

I am in the process of painting a lovely little cabinet, it was orginally used as a tv cabinet, although I really dont think there are any flat screen tv's that would fit in this cabinet now, the doors fold back all the way and it has lovely detailed legs, I will put a back on it covered in some lovelyness wallpaper, but im so pleased with the colour, its of ASCP in duck egg blue, ive had the tin for a while but not used it yet, the colour is more like a greeny grey/blue, i love it, my favourite colour at the moment, I will post a picture when its finished, and it will go in my shop for sale, Hubbys orders, :(  I think it would be lovely as a small linen cupboard in a bathroom maybe.

This is what it looked like before, just crying out for some attention and a re-vamp.

Looking good with only one coat so far.

You will find me on the sofa for the next three weeks as the Tour de France started yesterday, im so excited, good luck Sky.

So I must dash, housework to do before TDF,
Take care
