Shabby dining room

I have been looking at blogs and my dining room is shabby, Not chic just plain shabby. So on Thursday I finish work for 5 days, do you think that's long enough to shabby it up. Pictures to follow. I have made a list, and I am going to tick it off as I go along

Thought i would resurrect my blog

Thought i would resurrect my blog, I don't know why I haven't posted for so long. My grandma would have been 100 today, if she were still alive.She died 5 years ago, she was a wonderful funny lady, who taught me allot.
I got to thinking about her on Saturday as I was sat making a patchwork quilt, the green fabric reminded me of an old eiderdown she used to have.
I wish we still had it it was really warm and snuggly.
Here's a picture of the quilt not yet finished
