Happy Good Friday everyone. It's a beautiful sunny one here, although I have to admit to feeling a wee bit sorry for myself as L and I are full of a cold and E sounds as if she's about to come down with it. R has had several stinkers over the course of the winter and, until this week, I had managed to avoid catching them. Then, just as I was congratulating myself on my wonderful immune system, I succumbed.
Never mind, there have been lots of things to make me smile this week. The first was finally getting round to making a lampshade for my second hand standard lamp. The lamp base was bought recently for the princely sum of £14 from the antiques fair at the racecourse. The owner had already painted it a sage green and until I got it home, my plan was to repaint it. In situ, however, the green grew on me, so I decided to stick with it and just make a shade. The kit was bought online, there was a quick trip to Cath Kidston for fabric and I was ready to go. I'm rather pleased with the results, even though I'm sure the whole process would have been much easier without the head cold!
What do you think?
Also this week:
I FINALLY got around to cleaning out the greenhouse and sowing my seeds:

It looks a lot tidier than it did last week - I was too embarrassed to take a before shot! I had a little peek this morning and the radishes are just starting to germinate:
I finished my Folk Art Stitching. Now I just need to hang it:
My new supermarket flower:here), I decided that it seemed like a great idea. I couldn't find one similar, but Amazon yielded these:
