New Year, New Hobby

I've always fancied having a go at upholstery, but never seemed to get round it that was until a friend introduced me to Jayne . 
Jayne has a mobile upholstery business and teaches her skills weekly in a little Chapel just a few miles from where i live. 
I''m really enjoying it and hope to achieve better things in the future.

This little stool is the first of my projects.

The cat who got the basket, but not the cream.

On a day trip out to Aldeburgh Suffolk  last week I couldn't resist buying this hand made Indian storage basket. The idea was to use it as a laundry basket in our motor home, but as you can see Florence our 3 year cat got to it first and made it her bed. So as we hadn't got the heart to turn her out, the laundry basket will have to wait.

 I would strongly recommend a visit to Aldeburgh  for its out of the ordinary shops, where you can buy that little some thing different.
