My first rag rug attempt, not so sure I like it though.

Here is my first attempt at making a rag rug, let me know what you think because i think it looks quite a mess, my OCD won’t let me just accept it as it is!
Any tips on what I am doing wrong?



DIY with Tatties!

Been doing some redecorating, my conservatory was looking a little bland so I decided to paint the main wall and stamp leaves on it using a potato as a stamp. I also tried my hand at carpentry, the piece of wood fixed to wall says Welcome Home and I did this with a hammer and chisel. I hope my dearly departed grandfather would be impressed although his craftsmanship would have been far superior if he was still around. I screwed some picture hooks underneath the plank so that it would be a useful key hook. Now all I need is a rag rug which I will show you in my next post but I am not too sure about it.


Book of the week “Oh Dear Silvia”

I have just started to read a novel by Dawn French called Oh Dear Silvia. I chose it because it is my mothers name and I fancied a funny read. Although the main character is nothing like my mother the book is still awesome and pretty funny in a dark, twisted sort of way. For those of you who don’t know Dawn French, she is a British comedian who has done many sketches from French & Saunders to The Vicar of Dibley. Pick it up soon, you won’t be disappointed!
