After all the sorting and sifting throughout the house, loft, sheds and workshops we certainly had a lot to get rid of. There wasn't a lot of sellers but I suppose that made it easier to sell there wasn't a lot of competition. We certainly had a nice morning, chatting and laughing and best of all making money out of things we no longer wanted. We still have enough to do another one, so maybe next week if the weather holds. I intend to catch up with everyone and then put my feet up with a cuppa and my Homemaker magazine that has just arrived, a subscription gift from our daughter. We call it the gift that keeps on giving. Then its back to the grindstone as I need to make soup for Dad and alter some pyjamas for him that he had for Fathers day. No rest for the wicked!!!!
I have been on a mission with the sewing machine, making a few bits and pieces. Bibs always go down well and I have altered a pattern I use to give it a little more length, ready for weaning. So far I have three made but there are another 5 cut out ready to go.
I actually made myself something, which is a rarity. I made myself a shopper, perfect for a trip to town as carrier bags are no longer given as standard practise we now have to pay for bags here in the UK.
I loved the strawberries on the fabric, perfect for the season and it certainly made me smile. I thought I would look for some fabric in my stash ready to make another one for the Autumn.
I have made a cushion for Lily/Daisy's playroom, they love all of the Disney Princess's since their trip to Disneyworld.
We have also made them a pin board so that we can laminate some photos of them with the Disney Princess's, the perfect accessory.
Finally I pickled some beetroot, we have had such an abundance of beetroot it would otherwise have been wasted.
The kettle is calling so I am off for a nice afternoon tea, hopefully there are scones in the tin. Finally we are seeing a little bit of Summer which includes the sun. How are you spending these sunny days?
See you soon.
