Distractions

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.

I know that feeling! I love all your rooms you have done recently. My dolls houses are still sitting there, quietly filling up with props until the day when I decide to do them. That day seems to be a long time coming!
Your teatowels are actually on the way now!

It's a plastic sheet from precision products: http://earthntree.com/miniatures/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=72_960_963&products_id=26760

Mine is so old that it now has built in grime for that industrial effect!
