So, me being me, I thought "I will make some"
I went for a rummage in the scrap box, repurposed a bed valance and found some black needlecord which I got a huge piece of for a project ages ago. Even the buttons were rescued from some clothing item my husband grew tired of (cant remember what). Like most crafters, I never throw away scraps. I have a plastic bucket just for felt leftovers. These proved invaluable for the beaded flowers on the black pair. Even my husband was impressed. I spent £20 on a machine embroidered pillow for our bed a couple of years ago and he remembered that and suggested I might make some and sell them as "they were much nicer". Praise indeed from the `often scornful of crafting` other half. I have been saving this post to show you until I had given my daughter these. So as I am writing, I am really hoping she likes them. Just need to find her some bedside tables too as I also got her some lamps. She would like oldish ones rather that mdf modern stuff but I keep getting pipped at the post. It will give me a quest, I do like a quest for that elusive item. Its way more fun.
Spurred on by the succesful sewing, I have started a new quilt. Also a determined stashbuster project I have not got quite enough so I have left it with a headache and will have to be inventive. I refuse to buy more fabric. More to follow and maybe too, I might get around to finishing the 2 quilts I have pieced already. One was started last April and is even 80% handquilted but I just cant resist a new project. I think this is a common crafting problem. Well I hope so. Maybe it IS just me.
