After another busy week I found some time today to add some warmth to our home.
Remember I mentioned getting the rug out for our living room and 'cocooning' a bit?
As you can see above, I brought out the rug and my white knitted throw and what a difference it made straight away.
The sun was perfect in here today.
It has been really, really cold here as we only have a day of Autumn left.
So, I sat in the sun for a little while and enjoyed a coffee in the sunlight.
While I was sitting, I realised that we needed more cushions!
...and a new couch cover to be made.
The couch cover will have to wait for a few weeks while I tackle some other projects first.
Recently, I had a huge clean out of all our wardrobes and have bags and bags of clothes for the local charity shop.....but I did think, while sitting in that sun, that maybe I could use some of my knitted old jumpers and cardigans to make some covers.
So, I did. The grey one you see here was a cardigan I adored and thought it would make the perfect addition to our Winter cushion collection.
I only had time to whip up one, but I did salvage some other knits from the bags to be turned into covers very soon =0)
While the sun was pouring in our French doors, I thought I would give you a 'peek' of our 'new room'.
This room is ear marked for a paint makeover soon, but for now it is OK.
You will get a better look at it when I am ready to paint. I have some old/new pieces coming for the room that will be also getting makeovers and I am looking forward to that!
One day left until Winter hits. I think I am ready!!
