500th post and giveaway

This is what I did today. I covered my boring white Ikea table with some oilcloth. I have been planning to do this for ages. I am finally getting organised! As you can see the table now works so well you (or Miss 13) can even do homework on it. I am absolutely crazy for red, white and aqua so I decided to combine these two fabrics (sewed them together even) and staple them to the table. I like it a lot. So, this is where I will be sewing the giveaway this week. Leave a comment on my 500th post and I will draw a winner on Friday. And the prize? It's good. Handmade by me on my new, bright table.

500 posts, that is quite a lot! I am only halfway... Congratulations. Love the new table. Nice job. We have a table like this at school with only the red polka dot and believe me it is far too busy for your eyes, it was smart of you to combine it with another fabric.

Congratulations on 500 posts, Kris! There is something very pleasing to the eye about red, aqua and white, isn't there. It just 'goes' together. Although I'm the worst sewer ever, I do love your blog for all the things you create. Clever lady!

Cheers - Joolz
