Scent of Roses

Well even though I say so myself have not done badly this week. The sorting is coming along nicely doing in little steps is so much better, still a long way to go in the sewing room but starting was the hardest bit. In fact has got be buoyed up to continue when finished in the rest of the house. We did start on the top attic last year but ground to a halt. The plan at the time was to have the top one empty and only use the small one above the utility room. Not to mention the bedroom cupboards also need doing, plus have too many clothes I do not wear.

Made up 2 slipcases for an order, personalised one for and iPad


the other for a Mac Book Pro, meeting up with Jenny next week for coffee and a chat, hope she likes them in person.

I mentioned about colours last week and have done an article for the next PCG publication but thought would add some pic's here to show the different sets of colour ways. I love paint chips and always collect some when I go to Homebase. They can be used on mood boards etc along with Pantone an invaluable source of the trending colours and more, I am into pastels big time, lol.

I print off these images and just look at them for inspiration, colour matches and combinations.

Check out the other blogs at Handmade Monday

Will be back next week
