Simply Sewing Magazine Feature - Jane Foster

I'm thrilled to be featured in Simply Sewing Magazine this month - (Issue 16). There's a 4 page feature on me and my work and also a lampshade tutorial from my First Craft Book Fun With Fabric.
Here are some snap shots - it's a great magazine brimming with ideas and projects and is available to buy in WH Smiths and other stores.

Living room makeover in our 60s home - Jane Foster

We moved into our 60s house over a year ago now but hadn't time to renovate the living room until this past week. My partner did the renovations - first he added a wide window sill and tongue and groove cladding under the windows to create a wide shelf (and to also insulate under the windows.) He then painted the floor white with a large roller before we moved all the furniture in again. (Well, not all of it - we wanted it to look more spacious so left a side board out!) Here are some snap shots  -  it's looking very calm at the moment - not my usual style of filling every bit of wall space with all our pictures! I imagine more colour (and clutter!) will creep in gradually.
