Its Curtains for the Shed!

Having had Friday off work as well as the Monday this Bank Holiday I was able to get quite alot done. I helped DD at 2 Body Shop parties, went out with friends a couple of times and managed to get a respectable amount of housework and baking done. The job I was most happy to finish was sewing the curtains for the shed which I made from a double sheet I bought from a charity shop.  It feels much more cosy in there now.

As you can see it was a lovely sunny day yesterday and felt quite warm in the sun, but step into a shadow and the feeling was very different, as were the evenings.  Very autumnal to say the least (and only a month early!)
 As my offering for a party we went to I took Honey-Nut Muffins (what else!) and also baked a couple of Fruity Tea Loaves and a loaf of bread (which I haven't done for a while) for ourselves. 

I wanted to post before and after photos of these shabby looking items today but the 'after' will  have to wait.  My OH removed the edging and fabric from the tops and I painted them yesterday but I still have to choose new fabric for the tops and possible other finishing touches.  When finished they will go in the shed to increase the storage for me to get more of my stuff out there.  It's getting there!!  I'll move in soon!!

Bye for now

It doesn't seem right calling that adorable little building a shed. Love the cheery curtains!!!! And I can't wait to see your project finished. I am glad you enjoyed some time off. Sounds like you accomplished a lot.
