over the last couple of days i have exchanged my usual desk for kitchen work top, heres what i’m working with …..
i’ve had this box of fabric scraps hanging about and annoying me for a couple of years now. My nan taught me the art of thriftiness when i was very young, and its a habit a rather like to keep, so throwing things out whilst still possibly useful is just beyond comprehension in my head – hence a rather small house, packed to the rafters with all sorts of nonsense.
anyway back to the matter in hand – this box of fabric scraps, most of them little more than edge trimmings, has become particularly annoying recently as i find myself constantly tripping over it no matter where it is put. So I thought i should probably get on and use some of it up. I found a suitable plain cotton base ( rescued from one of my daughters projects that got half way – and given up on) and am currently patching them all together into a solid piece of fabric. My current thinking is to embroider the top in some kind of zentangle style, and turn it into a barrel bag – but this is not yet set in concrete so may well change direction.
thats it for today as i am also trying to get my garden cleared up before the forecasted rain and thunder hits, dont forget to check out all the other desks via julia’s delightful site.
ta ta for now
love and cyber hugs
