The blue will become the back of several things and will end up in my scrappy patchwork but the over the top blowsy pink is a horse of a different colour my friends.
To console myself and soothe my psyche after 2 days of mind numbing sorting and tidying I took half an hour to play.
The pink is now this.
This is waste.
This is not.
Well what is it then I hear you thinking, the woman has finally lost it.
In the cooler months I lurve my soft snugly duvet as much as the next person, more than some as my window is only shut if the wind is blowing the curtains in on the horizontal or rain is driving in.
In the warm months I love my cotton sheets and a patchwork quilt, I keep a thick throw across the bottom of the bed just in case it turns chilly. I do have crisp white cotton sheets and I have a few patterned ones because, as you may have noticed, I likes a bit of colour.
I know have a blowsy sheet, a bit of trimming, some super fast steamy time with the iron and a quick blast on the Janome et voila!
I claim this as number 21 in my challenge, I do not think it is a cheat as I have made it over from my stash, and besides that its mine and I love it.
While upstairs I thought I would show you my "new" bathroom cabinet, I have stacks of towels, Ben goes through several each day when it rains, and have to keep them somewhere.
It came from the shop in Crosshands and was the princely sum of £10, I have seen the mirrors on Ebay for 3 times that. Of course it has the odd scrape and scratch, but none so bad that I feel the need to do anything about them. It was very grubby but cleaned up easily and all the bits are intact, it reminds me of my Granny, she had a bedroom suite very much like it. Much nicer than an expensive bit of MDF from a big store for How Bluddy Much. All the joints are dovetailed and it is as sound as new.
The disappointment was in the garden, or rather it was not in the garden. I went up to pick my courgettes that had had appeared after so long only to find them gone, disappeared, not there. I saw no snail trail and they should have been at least 6" long each. I have no clue as to what may have eaten them, but I better not catch it in the act. 'Nuff said.
On a happy happy note my new Sew Magazine arrived today.
The free pattern is for Knit fabric and I will not use it, so if anyone wants it let me know, first one gets it.
One of my go to quilt blocks, in some scrummy colours from a new fabric collection. Don't panic, I am not about to rush out and spend, I may however be cherry picking through my stash later ( once I have sewed the 4 aprons together)
The I spotted this, and with a quick glance thought ooh a bag made from pyjamas, how thrifty. Then I had another look, it is a bag made for pyjamas, how old fashioned I had one of those at school. But I need a pair of dirty laundry bags, dark and light, and PJ,s are cheap as chips in the CS. But wait I have a load of HST blocks in pale colours and some squares in dark colours somewhere. They are on my To Do list.
This is the Tease page, what is in next months issue. I am so going to make that dress, without 6" of net peeping out, in fact I will probably make 2 as I am sure that Francesca will want one. I apologise for the Seasonal page but I quite like all things Scandi as does Fran.
O M G just look at the time, I must dash. Library will be open soon and Ben needs a walk first.
