Five on Friday – Finishing off

I have had a few days of finishing off half finished projects.

My rocking chair painted with Annie Sloan paint. OH did the buffing up as my arms were aching. A seat pad will follow, hopefully on Sunday in time for Creative Sundays blog hop.
P1290809And the side table, I love this colour, it’s Aubusson.
P1290818I got my succulent planter planted with an ‘Hecky Vera’ ( Echeveria lilacina)
P1290815I found time for some porcelain painting this week
P1290832And I stitched the buttons on my long cardigan. I made the cardigan to go with my handmade ceramic buttons, I know it’s crazy buying yarn to match buttons. It’s weighted at the bottom as it was pulling up slightly, it is beginning to drop a bit.

    Fantastic. Love the blue and the porcelain painting. I’ve just finished Edmund de Waal’ s on porcelain, jolly interesting. 🙂

  3. Too much to comment On. First the gate is STUNNING. Love the paint colour too. I tend to use Autentico paint rather than the Sloan paint. Personal preference, find the Sloan a tad too thick. But as I said that colour! Love ceramic buttons too. You are sooooo creative

    A lovely Five On Friday, I just love the blue paint colour. I also like the cushion on your chair and your porcelain painting is stunning. I would love to have the talent to create something like that. xx

    Whoa! So much beautiful creativity here! You really are skilled.

  7. Your chair is fabulous and goes so well with the flooring and cushion. I adore your succulent planter!! That is so beautiful. I love that you made a cardigan to go with your buttons! A true artist! Thank you so much for joining in the anniversary of Five On Friday, I really do appreciate it so much! Have a good weekend! xx

    Love the color of the table! And the hare is adorable, you’re quite a talented lady.

  9. The long cardigan is gorgeous. Where can I get the pattern? Love the color, too.

    Thanks for all the lovely comments . The crochet pattern in in the King Cole chrochet book,

    • Thank you. I checked the link and they don’t ship to the USA. However, you’ve given me a new challenge. I have lots of crochet books, and maybe I can find something similar. If not, then I shall scour the internet (especially Pinterest) to see if I can find something. As a bonus, it will encourage me to slim down by the time I finish the garment, because I’d ruin the lines with the bumps my present body would add..

    The blue is such a beautiful colour. Your planter and porcelian painting hare are wonderful too and what a lot of work went into your long cardigan:)

  13. What a gorgeous shade of blue for your rocker and side table! I have a rocking chair almost identical, but I think it’s going to stay natural wood. Your cardigan is so pretty, and I think that’s a great way to go about the knitting, matching buttons! Love the rabbit painting on your vase 🙂
