Oilcloth Doorstop & My Sparkler!

Our bedroom door wont stay open on its own so I made this quick and easy doorstop with some oilcloth that I have leftover from bag making.   I was originally going to make one with a zip but as the bottom and top are circular, and as its oilcloth, I took the easy option and just stitched it up after filling it with rice.   Only took about 20 minutes and does the trick nicely!




As some of you will know I got engaged a few weeks back. We went out and got my ring and its now back from being resized.  My adorable mother-in-law to be lives down in England  so I said Id post a piccie on my blog so she could see it.  Im not a jewellery wearer so I wanted something quite plain yet elegant.  It was the first one I tried on and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  x

  4. Congratulations on your engagement - your ring is very beautiful. I love your door stop too. I purchased some oilcloth to cover a stool recently ( I measured the stool wrong!!) so maybe I could have a go at that as the oilcloth is now spare! Sue x
