I'm still here, just crazy busy around the garden at the moment! Sometimes it's a little frustrating not having lot of time to post but it all balances out in the end, right? The pendulum is swinging towards the busy side but is sure to make it's way back again sometime soon.
In between tackling jobs in the garden (SO much to do! The grass in the chook run was thigh high!!), I've been making up some bread bags. Besides wanting few more for home, I've decided to sew some up for gifts.
They really are so handy to have around, I use ours all the time and am lost when they are in the wash! I have taken to lining the insides with calico to add an extra layer of thickness to keep as much air as possible out.
They're also simple to make which is just as well because with the amount of jobs I need to do outside, I couldn't concentrate for very long on a more elaborate project!
And after a disastrous visit to the tip shop last week that resulted in much car trouble for a whole afternoon (!) I was excited to find some pre-loved sewing patterns. At the TIP!! Who would've thought? I'm planning on making the A-line skirt pictured bottom right and have already picked up some fabric for it. It was nearly skirt weather today...nearly!
And after the retrieving of my old bed cover a couple of weeks ago, I was very excited when I spotted this:
Not that I could imagine using it anytime soon (anytime?), but what a coincedence! It couldn't just be left there to be tossed out now, could it?
