I seem to have been missing for a while lol, but ever so busy.
Last Saturday, I cleaned out the greenhouse
On Sunday I painted a back garden wall and a little of a 16 foot shed, On Monday I finished off the rest of the shed and planted sweet peas, lettuce, potatoes, tomatoes, herbs and peas. Tuesday was taken up with Mum and the house and Wednesday with Bingo, shopping and a visit to the local park in the beautiful sunshine. Since then, washing cleaning and life has been on the agenda, but today I managed to finish off my 2nd quilt, which is a birthday present for my neighbour Alan, who comes in every night for tea.
I will try to catch up with all your blogs in the next day or so, but I do have a couple of cards that cannot wait any longer, I have so missed the crafting this week.
In the meantime.......... here is a look at Alans present which is made from re-cycled curtains,(Alans daughter, the grey paisly,) used bed sheets(dark brown and machine embroidered)and a great find of a king size sheet in cream with a tinge of brown, complete with 2 pillow slips all brand new, from the charity shop at a princely £1.75p!! the backing was another brand new fitted cream sheet from the same shop. the pillow case came from the same place as the curtains, so I took it apart and put on a frill, (more re-cycled curtains) and sewed it back together to use a pillow sham! all in all....... with the new fleece inside it cost me about £11.00 !!!!
I love bargins!!! lol.......
I took it round for him this afternoon and he was over the moon, almost in tears that I had spent so much time on it, (he will be 85 this week lol)his daughter has just decorated the room for him ( cream and his furniture is brown wood) and it looks so masculine on his bed!
Thank you for your visit
