Finished Projects

I am on a mission as of late to finish all outstanding projects in the house.  In the past few days I have managed to tick off quite a few.  First the new room, then a pinafore sewing project and finally my crocheted house jacket.  Some of my crafty projects have been a success and others not so much.

the ugliest jacket in the world!  how grandma-ish; will I ever wear it!?

Now I can carry on with my knitted cardigan (I think it's actually going to be quite pretty and usable), the repainted manrobe and a desk rescue project.  I must keep repeating the mantra "don't start the next project until you finish the current one".

Browne Family Guest Quarters.....Open For Business

It's official: our garage conversion project is finally finished.  We have already had our first weekend of visitors and it is a total success.  When are you going to book in?
Of course I am still fiddling around with the decor.  The manrobe will soon be repainted a vibrant shade of blue and a red desk and sleepover ottoman will also make their way into the setup.
Until then the children are already enjoying the space as their private home theatre.

Remember what it looked like before?
