Good evening girls,
I've had one of those "making" afternoons and was quite happily sewing away then the phone rang and it was my nephew asking me if I wanted my sister's old draper's cabinet so quick as a flash I jumped in the car and drove round to their house with my tape measure.
I'm getting it delivered on Friday and I can't wait to show you it.
Anyway back to the "making", do you remember the cloth bag I bought in Oxfam a few weeks ago? It had the national anthem printed on both sides
so I unpicked the seams and made two cushions out of it,
adding a strip of "soldier" ribbon to the corner
and bobble trim down the sides
I'm realy pleased with them and all for £1.99 as I had everything else in my stash.
As soon as I saw this old OXO tin in a junk shop I thought I'd make a "scene" in it but I'd just got everything together when my nephew phoned so I'll have to finish it next weekend as I'm going on a first aid refresher course this week
and I'll tell you all about the beach hut I bought for a few grains of sand!!!
