Painting progress

A lovely day spent outdoors today - both painting and sewing. 

The red paint is as fabulous as expected, two coats on and I think one more tomorrow will complete the job.  I really wanted to use a roller for a smooth finish but the one I had was just rolling really unevenly and leaving fluff everywhere so I gave up and used a brush instead.

In between coats of paint I had a little go at making a cover for my change mat.  The patterned vinyl on it is hideous with a capital H.  I don't know why I didn't cover it last time it was in use!  I made some very dodgy calculations, cut my fabric too small, had to add on a couple of strips of extra fabric to make it big enough again and then after all that its still a very tight fit.  I plan to make two more so I'll have to re-think my maths.

It was too nice of a day to get myself in a twist about these little things.  I just enjoyed being outside in the gorgeous winter sun.
