It's the end of August,
so many of you are sad summer is almost at an end,
we did not have a good weather summer, a few warm sunny days,
but with spring so late and cold,
summer in the garden has been difficult in our little plot.
Another reason for being sad, we have to turn this page to another view,
I popped to a charity shop and found this little treasure for a pound
next to my posh pin cushion, it holds it's own
I love the feel of wood
The material is glued in,
the plan is to replace the material and put wire wool for the stuffing
this should keep my working pins sharp.
I use thin pins for silk, for everyday use
they are long and thin and do not mark the fabrics.
Theses pretty top pins are huge and leave holes in the fabric
they do look pretty
I was naughty and kept stitching, but guess what
one stitch out and loads of unpicking.
I might stitch some more and do knitting tomorrow,
I wanted to see the full size of the cushion
We are having a day at home, doing little jobs,I have used my sewing machine this morning, I repaired seams in our pillow cases, I like pure cotton linen and always white. A couple of years ago we purchased new quilt covers, but the seams on the pillow were coming apart, I have stitched all the covers, so they look like new. The sets should last for years.
I have used my Xyron machine today with embellishing folders, I like to keep cards started, so I can finish them when needed, and it's very time effective, to get the machine out and do loads.
We have been into our very small attic, and sorted our stock pile, we found there 2 x 16 pack of toilet rolls; 4 x 9 pack of toilet rolls; 14 big kitchen rolls; 4 x packs of dishwasher tables, plus loads of other items, we are looking for a small shelving unit to keep every thing tidy.
Hubby has replaced our light outside the front door, it had stopped working and Win next door asked us to replace it as it helps her see walking to her side door on dark days, Win's sight is not very good.
Now hubby is cooking our burgers for a late lunch, then we can watch film, and I can stitch.
Sometimes a wet day can be good for the household, silly little things have been completed.
How do you turn a wet day outside into a positive day inside.
