Me on a Monday

It was a puppy proofing, mantle painting, crop attending type of weekend.

With the bears arriving at the end of the month, its time to sort out a smaller area in the garden for them to explore. Plus, hopefully this net will keep the foxes from coming onto the cleaned decking.
I'm also giving some furniture a makeover, and my plan is to paint our kitchen cabinets this year, so I want to try some different paints out. To be honest, this one I won't be trying again. Or maybe its not good for 2 thin coats.   
As I didn't stay long at the crop this weekend, I just took my hexies .... I'm slightly obsessed with these at the moment. 

So there it was, my weekend .... A quick wave to Sian, for her great idea of me on a monday and I'll leave you with a little picture of my bears. I'm counting the days till they're here. I'm so very lucky that I can see them each week.
 And yes, both are in that basket ... you can just see Molly's head in Berties back by her collar.

    Is the Rustoleum paint not very good then? I have bought a tin but not used it yet.
    Enjoy the week ahead. X

    1. You may have better luck than me. I think where I went wrong was that I did a thin coat first. I'm wondering if a thick coat would have been better. It's ok, but I wouldn't buy it again.

  9. Those hexies look like they require a lot of concentration to me - probably just watching you wore those poor babies out!!

  10. They really are adorable. You're making great progress with your hexies. I have several "flowers" sewn together, but joining them together with a different colour in between seems like a tedious task!

    1. I had initially planned to do the same as you, but then just decided to get them put together and I'm pleased I did. Although I'm sure this will take a long long time to get a quilt together x

  18. Hi Sandra, been a bit lapse on the old blog reading but trying to get back into it! Wow the bears are gorgeous, can't wait to see more photos of them when they move in :) Loving all the painting and other home décor bits you have done the last few months, you're a busy bee. Take care and I'll be back soon x
