Leftovers!

Well thankfully we don’t have anymore turkey left to eat up!

The leftovers I’m talking about here are jelly roll strips that a friend sent me a while back and a few charm squares from another friend (I have great friends!).  I think they are French General, and I’ve a feeling there might be some Park Avenue in there too.

This truly horrid chest of drawers keeps unsightly wii remotes, dvds and old videos under control in my front lounge.

Until the other day I had a piece of red Cambodian shot silk on the top of it, always with the intention of it being a temporary measure until I got around to making something for it (I won’t tell you how long it’s been on there!).

So with some leftover linen from my cushions for this room, I quickly rustled up this simple table topper.

The next step in my master plan is to give this unit a paint job and some new knobs!

And with the teeny bit of French General I have left, I might make some year round mini bunting for the Victorian mantel (it always looks so bare when the Christmas decorations come down!).

Fingers crossed for a dry day today so I can get painting and distressing!
