Let the projects begin

There are a lot of projects that i have been putting on the back burner for one thing or another and have now decided for various reasons to start the long list of things i want to do.  Starting with the sofa below , It fits into the room OK but after seeing the Money for Nothing program with Sarah Moore i was inspired by the patchwork sofa she did and have decided to have a go.

Before.
I love the shape of this sofa 




A doubled up duvet cover is the start bought for £1.00.
Thanks to my friend mel for Ironing out all the tiny creases with her super iron.



So far so good. 




I will keep you posted.

Some new auction finds

Berlin work  rather worn in places on the net part, Still beautiful though.





Welsh Embroidery.



A sampler from the 1800's



This pair are one's  that i dont want to let go.





A signed miniature with piano key frame.
   


 This next lot are Art Nouveau silver.







Being  frugal it was grieving me that in the  last lot of Teapots I bought   were four black Victorian Teapots damaged  , I knew when i bought the lot but off set the cost with the perfect ones  it was still bugging me that i would have to discard them .
So  i am going to have a go at repairing them with some epoxy putty i bought on line and some black paint but was wondering if you have any tips on what i could use for the glaze , The only thing i can think of is  clear nail polish.
