Couch Potato.....

Now, this is what I needed last week when I was a couch potato and reading the "Twilight" books everyday! Our new lounge suite arrived yesterday after, what seemed like, a very long 3 month wait. We are so happy with how it all fits and goes with our colours. It is so squishy and comfy.
It is slowly coming together. Hubs finished the front of the fire place on the weekend too.
Now, if I can just get stuck into the painting and get it finished we could hang a few pictures too!
I have been working on this Matryoshka Doll Cushion recently too, to coincide with the pattern in Homespun. It will be available as a pattern from the website soon; that is when I get a chance to finish it, amongst everything else.
And, I have been working on a larger scale Doll too. I think I need to do the face again though as she seems to be a little "surprised" looking?
I finished recovering a lamp shade yesterday for an old lamp I picked up at the oppy for the bargain price on $12.95! I'll show you that one tomorrow.
Anyway, that's it for today.
Hope you all have a great day, Kathryn. XX

What a surprise! I figured your home all chintz and floral!
Leather does neutralize flounces, no?
Beautiful!

I like the surprised look. Congratulations on being published in the magazine. Does that mean I know a famous person?
