It is at least better than the grotty dark unhappy scruffy looking puff inherited from my husband's Auntie's furniture. In its favour I must say although it isn't a very special piece of old furniture ( I don't think it merits the vintage label) and I believe the materials its made from are very low quality, never-the-less it's a very practical item. Its been there for many uses such as a door-stop, emergency seat,foot-stool,ladder,cat throne and put everything on for a minute stand.
I had thought of throwing it out but it is like an old faithful and pretty practical so its had a face lift.
I shall be giving you a tutorial for this pouffe cover (my very first tutorial) as soon as I can . I have to do two of the hexagons again because they were created on the hook. Then I'll be able to write out the patterns for you step by step.
I also want to show off the contents of my gorgeous swap parcel that I received last week from Steph at Show and Tell. We are both participating in Lucy's Grand tea swap which I mentioned to you about in a previous post here. Steph has sent me a lovely bundle of goodies. I was also tremendously lucky to win Steph's Green Man giveaway and so I received a two in one parcel...whoopeee!!! Christmas in the summer!
Don't look for the bar of Galaxy chocolate in the photos I'm about to show you that's gone,gone,gone and very nice it was too....so my daughter and grand-daughter said. I agree .....as I did manage to get a taste.
Here you have the Green Man and he'll be going on my balcony wall among my plants as soon as I can get Sr P in the right mood to hang him up for me. He will look perfect there and its the next best thing to being in the woods for him.
I reckon he is looking for the chocolate....too late Pooh!
Lots of lovely tea! Types of tea I've never tried before. Do you see there is one packet open? Thats the orange,mango and cinnamon tea. I tried that yesterday and its very nice with a drop of honey.
I recommend it :-)
The ball of blue is the cutest little key ring ... a fluffy owl LOL!
I had lots of multicoloured coasters (believe it or not I have NO crochet coasters) which will be scattered around the house to tempt people to use instead of leaving marks on my furniture. I also had a bunting full of stars little ones and big ones........thats a first for me too...crocheted bunting that is.
Everything was just perfect Steph...thank you once again.
I would also like to welcome a new follower Pammy Sue at Scotty's Place . Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind comments.
