Today's subject is:
The versatility of pillowcases! ;-)
I know I deserve to be shot for this...noone in their right mind cuts up an old, candy stripe pillowcase... do they?
I am so very sorry ;-)
On Monday, I made these three, little aprons ...using up some odd scraps of fabric and embroidery to decorate them.
And now to cushions..
This lovely patchwork cushion, with the red vintage buttons came from Amanda...or I should say Amanda's mum, who made it so beautifully, from a vintage quilt.
And...this little beauty...
I hit downtown N.A. this morning, with my mum, and we went back to the charity shop with the linen sale...here's one I missed earlier and so she kindly bought it for me!
It's beautiful but actually has a lot of spotty brown age marks on it so I won't feel so bad about.....err umm...you know what!
Finally things are looking up in Newton Abbot.
A very nice wool shop has opened in Queen Street and I really do wish them all the success.
Here's why in one word:
....with a flamin smile!
How novel is that! ;-)
To be welcomed so warmly by the lady owner, was quite noticeable (and ought to be noted by one or two other shop owners nearby!)
Funnily enough, my own motto has always been,
'A smile costs nothing'
A delightful shop with plenty of stock and plenty of room to move...so a gold star from me!
