Its getting there

Easter is quiet for us we just buy two Easter eggs for our daughter and son in law wich were of course a bargain ( I forgot to photograph them ) 
They were Thornton's Large eggs retailing at  £25.00 each , But we got them for  £4.99 in a local warehouse that usually sells near or out of date stock but the eggs were neither.  

As i mentioned in my last post The living room is having a makeover , Since buying the chairs it just didnt look right with the sage green colour so we had the walls painted and this weekend i made some cushions.


The red velvet was new and unused for 30p from a  jumble sale, The striped fabric was in the clearance at Dunelm and just cost £3.00 , I also have enough to make some tie backs for the curtains, I will reveal the whole room soon 



The cotton i used came from a sewing box i bought from a jumble sale for £4.00 , The box itself i am rubbing down to re stain at the moment but just look at the contents , It was a bargain.










Of course Easter Sunday Dinner just had to be a bargain , This rack of lamb was from Iceland it was Beautiful , This is a type of cut that i usually avoid as its expensive and dosent go far but at this price , It was perfect.
If you can't see the label it was £3.00, Instead of £15.99.

  

Then i made an old Old fashioned fruit cake from My Homepride  cookery book.


The book is rather stained but that's how i found it , Its been well used.




Hope you all have had a productive Easter.

  1. Hi Shabby glad you have had a nice Easter. Mine has been quiet an not as planned. OH decided he was going fishing so I thought I was going to get a few days crafting. Then he changed his mind. He tends to hang out in the computer/craft room when he is here and when he is I cannit concentrate and end up going wrong. It looks as though you have been extremely busy. Look forward to the reveal. I am intrigued as usual. I hope things are comfier for you now. I am busy collating things together to doing my front room although it will be a little way off yet. However I am hoping to get some cushion covers made in the next few weeks or so in the nicest possible sense when Oh is not around from fabric sourced as remnants and some fabric I already had. I also have some tablecloths and table covers to do and a couple of ironing board covers. Take care pattypan xx

  2. I love finding sewing stuff! looks like you bought the mother of all sewing supplies there. What a bargain!
    The cushions look great and the shade of the on blue walls is, too.
    I've spent 18 hours working in the garden this weekend, Sunday lunch was an out-of-date Lidl cup-a-soup! xxx

    We have had our roast lamb today as we were partying yesterday. It was lovely with new potatoes and spring greens.
