So yesterday while my friend practiced her hooking on the lovely teal yarn, I pottered about a bit, so as to not be constantly watching over her shoulder. It was, I might add, lovely to watch her sit and look so calm and meditative as she worked her way along her chains. Thus is the beauty of making something, is it not?
Back to my pottering, so I picked up the brush and finished my little "Whitening" project. I do so love this term for it, many thanks to the lovely comment-or who suggested it.
Last night I rummaged in the store cupboard - I was sure I had stashed an old shade in there somewhere. I was in luck, and so out come the mod podge, and delightful Amy Butler print I had been saving for the "right" project.
As a little aside, do you miss Notebook Magazine? I do, but then I found the inspiring Vera Klein (previous home editor of Notebook) has her own blog, packed full of her fabulous projects, which reminded me how much I loved the magazine. She has a great post on how to cover your own lampshade, should you be all inspired like to give it a go.
Wishing you a lovely weekend
