Good morning

Where has the sunshine gone, a wet week for most of us and much cooler.
Today is our new Crafty Catz challenge set by our lovely Ingrid and she would like you to recycle it!
I decided to do a set of cushions..........

and the back..............


I cut out the back pockets from a pair of jeans and then used some material from what used to be a set of curtains to go around them, I cut up the legs and bordered that on and then made the backs from the same curtains. the insides I got from the charity shop, washed them so they smelled nice and I knew they were clean lol.........

We are sponsored this week by .............
PRIZE ......$15 GC to the Fred She Said Store. 

Have a look at the teams altered items, they have done some fab work.

The week has flown past and I don't seem to have achieved much (as usual) I have washed my jars ready for this years blackberry jam, just need the berries to get a little bigger, I have picked some of my potato crop and they were delicious with butter and mint sauce, 
Thank you for your visit and any comments you wish to leave.
Hugs Tilly x
