Time to keep my promises...
Id promised myself time to do a little project of my own for the kitchen. We live in a new build home and unfortunately I feel the kitchen lacks a soul. As I love to cook and as a busy mum (understatement of the week) I spend a lot of time in there so my venture and challenge was to try to make the place feel more homely. I had an idea for a patchwork piece to reflect the love in the house (sometimes when the children are not fighting) plus I wanted a country feel.
The wooden piece embelishment was from a local garden centre and the patchwork cat was saved from a redundant pair of my daughters jeans..(those cats just get everywhere.)
I had great fun playing with the sewing machine , seamstress I am not so this was a challenge but I pleased with the results and it looks lovely in the kitchen just the look I wanted. xxx.
