DON'T YOUR FEET GET COLD IN THE WINTERTIME?
THE SKY WON'T SNOW AND THE SUN WON'T SHINE,
IT'S HARD TO TELL THE NIGHT TIME FROM THE DAY.
YOU'RE LOSIN' ALL YOUR HIGHS AND LOWS
AIN'T IT FUNNY HOW THE FEELING GOES AWAY?
It's about 4" wide and 2.5" high. Please put me out of my misery if you can, thank you!
I have done the mother of all sort outs (or is it sortS out??) this week. In order to ascertain what I have:
(a) already made (b) cut out but awaiting sewing (c) good fabric of a reasonable size (d) largish scraps (e) scraps to go in the stuffing bag
It needed everything pulling out of boxes and wardrobes...
The fabric is mostly sorted out into heavier and lighter weight cottons.
All the ribbons, ricrac, piping cords, elastic and bling embellishments are together in one box....
In another lies the wherewithal for making bunting - a veritable box of bunts!! I'll start running some lengths up in order to send off to folk for their charities.
And I know I said I wasn't going to buy any more fabric...you know what's coming here.....but I was in Salisbury last week with Julia and we nipped into one of our fav fabric shops and they had a sale rack with all these gorgeous heavy cottons at £3 per metre instead of £10-12!!! I couldn't let that pass especially as I'm going to be making fleecy backed quilts for a project that JoZart has thought of.....
Aren't they fab? I made myself be restrained cos I could have bought an awful lot more. £60 worth of fabric for £15, not bad eh??
Then I found these fleece remnants for 90p in my local wool/fabric shop in Pewsey...
There's enough to make about 4 little beanie hats, I reckon. Isn't it pretty?
So. that's enough to keep me busy for a while - if not quiet!!!
Thank you to all the folks who entered my '99 Not Out Giveaway'. Here are the winners....
Hooray and congrats! If you lovely
ladies would like to send me your snail mail addresses, I will get your prizes off to you forthwith. Morti, I'll pop around for a coffee and bring you yours, shall I?? Lol Thanks to my random answer generator (G3, my son) for picking the winners for me :)
And finally, we had a rare day of blue skies and sunshine on Sunday. We wrapped up for a bracing walk and enjoyed a good old stamp around the village. It was glorious...
and even in this freezing weather are signs of burgeoning life. These pussy willow buds were glowing in the sunlight, just starting to burst out of their shiny black carapaces. Beautiful :)
