I love the smell of sheets that have been hung to dry outside. I have also been busy altering a dress that I came across in the pile for getting rid of as I didn't like the neckline.
Instead of discarding the dress, I decided to make it into a skirt ready for my trip to Florida in the Autumn. I cut out the zip and cut off the top, then simply re stitched the seam and turned over and sewed the top edge. A few simple adjustments and it is now an item of clothing that I will wear.
Amie, my daughter and her little family moved home a couple of weeks ago, so we are going down for the weekend to visit. I have some Cath Kidston fabric that she adores so I have made them a table cloth and a runner for their new home.
I have edged the cloth with some vintage lace to give it a luxurious feel. I have also stitched a plain runner for the coffee table in the same fabric.
I hope they will be very happy in their new home. The rain has certainly saved us a job of watering today and has given some of the blooms a renewed lease of life, the sun was giving them a hard time and making them wilt. They are coming back with a renewed vigour. What's the weather like in your neck of the woods? I am certainly getting the impression that there are some unusual weather patterns about at the moment.
See you soon.
