Tidying Up

A couple of days ago I decided to clean up our office.  This meant getting large files off our workspace.  To do this I removed a couple of doors from the overhead cupboards and moved the files up there.  This gives us easy access to jobs that are current but without clogging the work space.  This also enabled me to move other items up. 

One thing I really dislike is looking at this (above) on the top of the cupboards, so I thought to glam it up a bit I would cover it in some old painters drop cloths that I had used for other craft projects.  This is what I came up with!

Total cost of this project $0.00, and I love the look!

I have finished the bunny rug I have been working on.  Nothing complicated here just a giant granny square in blue and white.

 With a small decorative edging.  Nothing complicated at all.

 I have finished some more bags!  These are all made out of furnishing fabrics and made by me!  I have too many now and want to unload them.  Does anyone have any ideas on how I can go about selling them?  Please leave a comment for me!!!

Lovely natural linen look with postage marks.  Outside front pocket and one inside pocket.  Very sturdy with extra thickness fabric on the base. 

One of my favourites!  All neutral colours with a large engraved button made from coconut.  Adjustable shoulder strap.

Same style as above bag, but slightly smaller version.  Adjustable strap and magnetic clasp.

A large shopping tote.  Brighten up your shopping day.  Magnetic clasp

This is the same bag but I made it completely reversible.
Same style as above bag (Not reversible) with a magnetic clasp.
Let me know what you think of all my bags!  I would love some input.

Our daughter, E, is arriving this afternoon with her partner and she has put in order for dinner - curry chicken pie, so I will have the oven on later.  While it is on I'll bake some bread and some biscuits for them to take home.  They don't have an oven so I bake goodies for them to have.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Oh!  A huge thank you to Carol from Art Matters for helping me with loading photos to blogger.

Take care
