Large parts of the living room floor are now clear space and I have Thrown Some Things Away. Eek! Will I miss them? I don’t know, but I’m sure that I won’t remember what I put in the bin in a month’s time.
Tonight I have crossed two things off the UFO list. The undies now have waist elastic and the bag now has one single strap not two lonely ends. I have also sewn a little needle case for Miss Amoo as part of her christmas gift. The cover is denim from Mr G’s old jeans, the lining is part of a double cuff that I cut off all Mr G’s old shirts when I made them into a rag rug. The bit for the needles is cut from the sleeve of a felted jumper and I blanket stitched the edges of the wool while I was watching trash on iPlayer. Doing little things like this reminds me why I keep so many bits of fabric and why it is such a struggle to get rid of stuff.
A nice peaceful evening at the end of a kind of weird week. I forgot to go to work on Wednesday night which is a sign of something being a bit discombobulated in my head for sure.
