Having a rest from sewing to catch up on all things housework and family related - my fingers are itching for stitching ! We have a commission for a wallhanging to think about at the moment - very exciting. Managed a little excursion to some charity shops for supplies, lovely old wool blankets and embroidered things (stained but usuable) and a slightly sad but still smiling charmingly at me from a basket of old toys - teddy - not old but so well-loved his nose is bald from kissing and his fur all matted and curled. 50p - how could I resist -I had to rescue him! and I will revive him by giving him a little knitted tanktop and a Rescued and Revived Ltd label and use him as a prop for cushions etc. - look out for him.
