It has been some very full days - full of different events, mostly non-quilty.
I promised to show you my purchases from last week, and here they are - mostly CW repros or fabrics matching them, all 1/3 meters cuts.
The embroidery floss has a story of itself. Nope, I have not gone bananas in a shop ;-)
My dear aunt had seen a box from DMC, with 100 skeins of embroidery floss, for a good price. She did not want the floss though, as she has floss as we have quilt fabrics. She had tried to purchase the box only, with no luck.
I have seen the same box before, but did not want the box, but would love to have the embroidery floss.
Get the picture ? :-)
We agreed to do a split - my aunt purchases the box through mail order, kept the box and sent me the embroidery floss. She paid all the postage and I paid the thread. A good deal were had by both!
DH is away most afternoon and evenings now. His parents have bought a one bedroom flat and are emptying their row-house with 3 storeys.
This is my dear mother in law's sewing box from late 50s, early 60s. It has not been in active use for many years. It now belongs to me :-)
I plan to make a new fabric cover for the drawer and the whole thing can do with a good scrub down.
I love things with history.
Look where found our beloved grand-cat on Saturday. No wonder she often comes in, her fur full of dirt.
We had some nice days through the weekend.
Our youngest nephew had his church confirmation on Sunday, and it was lovely to be able to spend some time outdoors during the celebration too.
We got so much good food and cakes I am still full.
A new string quilt is in the making. Nothing as relaxing as a busy sewing machine :-)
