Certainly not as messy as it has been but not really conducive to easy sewing!
My nod to organisation yesterday was to go through some op shopped linens and sort out which ones could be cut up and used for other things. I buy most of them with the idea of using them for something else and then once they are washed and ironed I am very hesitant to cut them. So my new criteria is if they have any marks or blemishes then I will re-purpose them. Contained in the wonderful blue floral knitting holder (a great garage sale find) is:
an old hand embroidered cot sheet. This is so soft and beautiful to touch but we don’t have a cot so I thought it could be a drawstring bag for pyjamas, some hand made linen napkins which are destined to be girl’s headscarves, two blue doilies which I think are going to be a zippered purse of some sort and then there is the beautiful doily with the owls on it. I think that deserves a closer look!
I wasn’t go to use this for anything else but the big black stain at the bottom just won’t budge so I thought I would make it into a cushion/pillow cover and it would be perfect for one of my little girls to go to bed with.
I haven’t played along here for a little while now and I’ve really missed it. It’s like a self-enforced deadline – now these things are up here I’m going to have to do something with them!
