Note: you'll see a cat in some of these photos, it's Ollie. Ollie doesn't like having his photo taken but he managed to inveigle himself into the ones in the living room then he turns up in the bedroom!

I've just finished Kaffe Fassette's autobiography 'Dreaming in colour' and he quite often puts lots of objects together in large numbers, which I have done here with my collection of Aynsley china etc.
This sofa is in our bedroom the back of it is covered in one of my many tablecloths (I don't have to worry about to much retucking on this one as it's not sat on that often, by humans that is, cats are another matter!).
I found this table cloth (detail shown in the first two pictures below) in our local hospice shop and it is so beautiful that it was a shame to put it away so I'm using it as a throw on the bed. It is beautifully made, completely out of tiny, neat little blanket stitches.
Out front room sofas, again utilizing some of my vintage linen and cushion cover collections.
There's still a couple of bits to do (our dressing room is a cushion dumping ground at present and there's a couple of shelves and a china cabinet that are a bit bereft due to my grouping lots of china together). Hopefully, these will be done this week, but I have a few things to make for my sister's birthday and a couple of other things that should really be finished this week.
I'm taking part in Handmade Monday as usual, pop over to see what my fellow bloggers have been up to.
