Top of today's list of things to do was taking up trousers for a friend and (finally) finishing Mitchymoo's May Swap.
I started so well! I tidied away the trial scenes from this morning so I could pull out the overlocker and sewing machine. Turned the iron on, found the trousers, and...
Decided I'd "just" see how a piece of the runner looked with some paint on it. It seemed so sensible to arrange things so it could dry while I was working on those two very important priorities.
I got the first pair of trousers pinned up. Went downstairs to put a load of washing out, and on the way back through the kitchen, thought I'd "just" see how the flooring was going. And, what do you know, it was dry...
I rather like how it looks with just the first coat:
very vintage/ shabby chic.
It also works well as wall panelling (something else that's been on my wish list for a while now):
And those trousers? That's them buried under my mini storage box. *sigh*
Looks like I need to clean things away AGAIN, have lunch and restart the day.
